GEC Z5582 80/125w MV

GEC Z5582 80/125w MV

The small town adjacent to an old abandoned power station in New Zealand used to be lit with these throughout the residential streets. Now all of those lanterns on poles that are still on public roads have been replaced with HPS types, still on the original poles.

Fortunately there are still a couple of these remaining that are along a grassed driveway to a football field that appears to have once been a road. Decommissioned though; the fuses in the poles have been removed. I'm unsure of the wattage however they would be either 80w or 125w.

Wow,
It reminds me on the street lights we had in my province around the fifties/sixties.

I have a few of them, including one iron arm.
They are made out of red copper with a glass (and later plastic) shade.

Climbing the pole with a hacksaw would be better.

Wieger - hacksaw is a hand saw for cutting metal. Extremely useful for liberating street lights from their otherwise unknown fate!

Aha.
Here in my country we used "klimschaatsen", in your language climbing skates, or more likely climbing shoes.
To climb in a pole.
I have several of these.

. Not for climbing, but cutting metal. Like a saw.

You will cut off the streetlight where it comes out the street?

Eh. These are abandoned basically. I think theyre free game. Considering if they ever do recommision the road, it will be converted to HPS or LED..
