    Sub Instll

    Like others feedback. Once these are set on pad how many guys and how many days do you think it would take to attach the 5kv, xfrmr and 600v sections together. No feeders terms!! It will be three separate section. I'm thinking 4 guys 4 days. Thanks

    Will it fit through the door or needs to be stripped?
    Do you have the tools to move it? Get it off on he truck? Get it in the building?

    Depends on how skilled your electricians are.

    Here's a 750kva, about 7500 pounds, 4160-208/120 substation. Moved 100' around obstacles, set on the pad and bolted onto one 208/120 volt switch section which was also moved about 100'. 2 men, 1 day (Journeyman and Apprentice). Once it's on the pad we just drop it onto several 3/4 RMC rollers and move it with a pinch bar.
