I've never seen it. #2/0 solid aluminum. POCO underground feed.





And, a free carwash along side the freeway.



Maintenance crew painting the retaining walls oversprayed my vehicle as I was driving by. I circled back and fortunately there was a lot of room to pull over. They power washed it and gave me a $50 gift card to have it detailed. :thumbup:

A lot of the overhead poco conductors are solid AL. I've never seen them used in an underground application though.

I've never seen solid AL conductors. Everything Poco side I have seen has been ancient CU or ACSR

I hope, at least, that it was an American made pressure washer.:blink:

If it was an American made vehicle like the two piece of **** Fords I last purchased, the pressure washer would have somehow disabled it and cost me a couple thousand dollars.

$800 fuel pump and $1400 injectors at under 30K miles one one and injectors on the other one. When America figures out how to build a quality vehicle, I'll buy one. My Chevy (Izusu) vans have been pretty good but for smaller vehicles, Toyota has always been stellar for me.

Ford can kiss my ass :thumbup:

Some POCOs used to do solid aluminum open secondary busses on spool racks. Underground here is stranded AL. New Over head leans toward either, AAC or ACSR with a few AAAC.

The repairs were under warranty? Ford's bumper to bumper is 3/36000 and powertrain is 5/60000.
