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? [Linked Image]

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 [Linked Image]

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! [Linked Image]

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).
