How do you wire a two pole, four wire clothes dryer? I'm not certain of the amps involved.

That is a beautiful 2-pole, 4-wire clothese dryer electure.

Is it the 1872 or 1876 model?

In order to wire the 2 pole dryer in the picture, I woudl suggest trenching/ buried pvc conduit, with thwn conductors, sized for voltage drop of course, probably end up using #12 or #14, cause it doesn't look like it gets continous loading or very much demand. Oh yeah, you could also use uf cable for this make of dryer, but check the listing first.
