This actually happened to me. I was on a NATO inspection team, and we were grading an American HAWK Unit. I was walking around checking things on the generator row, when I kicked a ground rod, to see if the cable was tight, Tight it was. BUT, the rod moved. I reached down and gave it a tug. Out it popped! About 18-20 inches long!! I pulled on the next gen sets ground rod, and had it in my hand also. Not good.Ground rod is too short!
I almost started a new thread, but feared the wrath of Administrators falling on my head for wasting space.
These pictures are real. I took them. It's not often I back away from a job, and say, "not no, but hel* no!" But this time, I told the boss, cant do it. The owners of this pig stall, (300-400 pigs) wanted us to hook up PV, (photo Voltaic) to this distribution box. My partner, (who has a REAL problem with mice and rats) vomited on my foot, and three times before he got out the door. The mice didnt bother me, but the safety hazard. This is like a nothing I have ever seen here before. And the owners would not let us turn it off! It was summer, and the pigs would have overheated in their stalls, without the air intake fans running non stop. The only way I would have repaired this box, would be to cut each cable out, graft a new end on to it, and hook it back up. We walked, the boss backed me, and I bet it still looks like this, 2 years later.
