I want the lemon on top in pic 2.

Can you imagine somebody with one of those "pruning poles" (with the saw and rope operated cutter) picking around up there?

We got lemons out the wazoo here! There must be some safer ones to pick! But if you insist, I'll tell Anahiem Power to pull it down with a hotstick when they replace the insulator & lines

With it being an old Zinsco, a FD practice burn would be a better choice LOL.

P.S. is that main fusible?

Yes Norcal... It's fusible... 100A Knife blades to make this Zinsco a little less hazardous! .. With some of the other things I saw at this place, I doub't they'll be any practice involved if this place ever burns... The MC cable entering the side of the panel was the admitted work of the homeowner after "a few 6 packs"... At least he was cool when I informed him MC cable isn't meant for outdoor use, & let me get rid of it!

When I saw the dangling landing Insulator + the Lemon Tree, I totally thought "Looks Like Old Anaheim Stuff" - brought on from the many, many, many-many-many times I have seen the same stuff during "Drive-By Lookings"
("Drive-By Lookings" = passing someone's House, seeing an odd yet eye catching Electrical scenario, turn around and drive by slowly to verify / become puzzled).
