This is the NOS soviet made street light, called RTU-06. It has aluminum alloy flange, original two spool ballast and original soviet NOS 125 watt mercury vapor lamp inside. As some of you may know I recently moved to a new place. I moved into a house from an apartment and I have my own yard now. I installed two of these NOS fixtures, because I had three of them, that I got from my grandpa a few years back. He has 50 more of these fixtures in his farm building attic, he also has 5 boxes of 50 125w MV lamps. He has that many because he stole them from his workplace in 1980s. These are still made to this day, but with igniter for HPS or MH, this one is from 1970s it has original two spool ballast, original capacitor, and original lamp base. It also has opaque glass shade, while the modern ones have opaque plastic shade. I have installed two of these in my yard. One is next to a house, that is lit because I needed to go to my farmhouse, and the other one is off the shot next to my farmhouse. This one is wired wia a separate breaker into my house, and the other one is turn-able from the farmhouse. I really like these old NOS soviet street lights, my dream was to have one soviet street light, well, now, I have two NOS ones, in use.
