Looks safe enough from this side of the country! Hey, at least they connected the ground wire so they were somewhat safety-conscious.

Why has it got seven wires going into it? confused Why is it parked on the tailgate of a truck? confused

Well, at least they attempted to scrape the paint off from under that self-tapping ground screw. smile


Wood work but can't!

Why is it parked on the tailgate? Because I wanted the motors, that's why. whistle

BTW the TEK screw is not a kosher method of grounding.

If it werent United States I'd say wye/delta three phase and thermal protection (though 8 wires seemed more likely in that context).
