New meter socket









Poco decided they weren't coming back to tie the underground in to the pole until morning. I had to temp it up for the night.







Got too busy trenching to get any pictures. Had to pull a stump and dig out 14 cinderblocks and countless bricks we found 6 inches down.
I am wiped.
Will get pictures of the new panel for you savages tomorrow when I go back. It's not on its side either this time, wouldn't fit.

all that work and no pipe? i just can't figure out why people don't go with pvc over direct bury.
Less work more money!
It has to be in pipe here on the utility side of things.
We did trench lay in pipe , marking tape, pull rope, get permits.
Utility shows up pulls in cable and they,re the hero,s

The rocks and buried crap is exactly why I bought a mini excavator !
Hand digging that crap out is way to much work for me!
Digging in some places is a absolute nightmare , buried crap everywhere .
Worked with a trencher yrs ago and spent as much time on the shovel as I did the trencher .

This is one of the ugliest panels I have ever installed, but they can't all be homeruns. This was running way over schedule. Good shot of the mains barrier for the Americans.




The crap we dug up





The finished product. I terminated the U/G phone and cable stuff too.
