I’ll try to get it down before snow falls but that’s probably not going to happen.

Looks like a remote ballast but there could have been another light on the pole once that this was powering. Does not look like a contactor but you might check out the nameplate and see what it reads.

Going down tomorrow ,I’ll see the box and get a pic of the slipfitter.

The "box" might have a good ballast or relay inside. You sure they are both disconnected from any overheard or underground electric power source?

Yes the overheads are dangling down not connected to any other pole, there is no wires coming out of the ground.

Be safe and make sure the pole is not rotten at the ground.

Ok, I’ll give it a self inspection, that pole was probably disconnected for a reason.

Easiest way to describe, tap the pole about three feet up and then tap the pole hard at ground level. If you get a dull "thump" at ground level, watch out. But you be the judge if it is rotten or not.

BTW Have someone with you and if you have another ladder, you might lean it against the pole on the opposite side that you are climbing to counter the pressure on your side. Just a suggestion.

I was thinking about doing that but climbing the
ladder to get it, I would lean the ladder on the side that leans the most.

Don't think so. Difficult to determine unless I see the side view of the slipfitter.

After studying this image and other associated images and a Sylvania catalog, I think this was made by Sylvania.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
