Form 400's in construction site

Form 400's in construction site

Click to view full size image

I saw these 2 lights in the middle of a large construction site. The lamps are very dim, and I don't know why the lights were still up since they are smack-dab in the middle of it, although maybe they do provide enough light at night to light up the storage area.

Sounds like their days might be numbered...

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Yep sadly. I am not even going to try and save these. (nothing personal, I just have bad luck and liability issues always get in the way)

No harm in asking, the worst is they say no, but you know 50 % of the time they say yes ...

something about these Form 400s seems off... Perhaps they're actually Revere Endovals? I'm not super good with ID'ing clamshells but these don't look quite the same as the Form 400s I've seen. Awesome they're still up and they probably have really old lamps in them. Too bad they'll be crushed in a matter of months.

In the same area, there is another pole with some beaten looking M400R2 FCO's. I could have sworn that neither of these poles were here before. Is it possible that these construction companies just carry around old lights to use for lighting construction sites? I have seen the DOT do similar things with poles when redoing the freeway.

No harm in asking, the worst is they say no, but you know 50 % of the time they say yes ...

I haven't even seen anyone nearby to ask.

Ok this might need parent permission, but a picture of a 12 pack to trade for the above two lights with a phone number on it might get the construction workers attention posted on the pole with a phone number, lots of things can be saved from the scrap heap with a little motivation , and most of the time the people taking them down don't really care what happens to them if it a dumpster or the trunk of there car, and when they know you they might even tell you what else they scraping and let you pick though it, and I would only suggest beer because most people doing the removal know they can sell scrap copper with out much effort, but talk it though with a parent first...

Beer does do the talking some times
I was actually pretty lucky get beer in my
Underage teen years, where i use to work
I was able get a case of beer at whole sale
Prices with my boss.

U have do case study most problem is
If lights in middle of parking lot it so much
Easier to knock it down with a buldozer
That how most demolation companies operate
So how i got my ITT model 25? The pole that have them was next to a 7200 volt power line
Like 5 feet away. So these had be bring down slowly. So. Ask right forman got those.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Yeah I found this rocket scientist that decided to knock down a pair of AE 327s with a forklift holding a shipping crate.

Here's a group of guys sentencing a yardblaster on a wood pole to death.

Some light pole fatalities are caused by geniuses like this one...

...Or this one...

...And this one.

Then you've got some guys who are just plan mean!

That silverliner video makes me so sad. Same with the AEL 327's. Those cost over $600 new and lots of collectors would love to have one. Not to mention the mercury and halide salts or whatever they got all over the lot by doing that. A long time ago there was actually a yardblaster in my driveway, but I was really young at the time and don't remember much other than how I loved the green color and the buzzing sound it made. it got knocked down many years ago thanks to drunk neighbors though.

Idea: Manufacture streetlight poles strong enough to handle powerful forklifts.

@ Zarlog: What were your neighbors doing in your driveway? Did they knock down a utility pole or was it on a short little pole? Unfortunately no one in my family ever had any HID lights on their property but I've gotten some cool fluorescent lights from family members (I got them by replacing them with modern-ish/generic fixtures from the ReStore that were either already F32T8 or I converted to T8 and repainted when necessary.) I've offered to install street lights for family but no one wants one.

It was at the end of the driveway and it is the same driveway the neighbors use. It is a large driveway so there is enough room for both. They since moved out and someone else moved in, and I was thinking of installing a new light there, although there is currently a 150w par38 floodlight we put on the garage to light it.

Alright, so they finished the apartments a while ago and they kept these up. I think the parking lot they are in might be owned by someone else. It's a little weird seeing these right next some really modern upscale apartments though.
