Maybe it's for an air compressor with a big water remover or something like that. Single phase, 100 for the compressor, 70 for some other add-on unit.

Or you guys talking about something else?

I was thinking along those lines maybe HVAC unit with 240 heater and a single phase fan motor?

I'll put 84 amps on a 70 amp breaker all day long and it won't trip.
