Is this what is meant by a balanced load? [Linked Image]

Wow, GE must be proud.

Truthfully, that is special California-qualified seismic 'medical' hemp rope. The rope also meets the new state transformer-energy savings.

No comment about the custom sprinkler-pipe suspension.

Any idea how much such a transformer weighs?

Few hundred pounds of iron, I assume....

That black pipe....

Oh boy.......what will happen if that thing springs a leak? Look on the bright side, you'll have water gushing down on this disaster to put the fire out quickly.

HEY, by the way...how tall a stick do you need to pull down that knife switch handle? [Linked Image]

I wish this were a cartoon. Now....where's the coyote when you need him?

Maybe someone stole the floor. That metal stud wall on the right seems to also be floating.

Sven this looks to me to be a basic 30 to 45 KVA 480-208/120 transformer, I would be surprised if it weighs more than 250 to 350 lbs. Still quite enough to ruin your day.

I am not defending this at all, but to me this looks like the work of demolition contractors, every thing we can see looks in a state of demo.

I would hope no EC would leave this like this, [Linked Image] 20' - 25' of unistrut and some threaded rod you could have this properly supported in under an hour.
