Lakeshore Gardens has a new Electrical Transformer

Large Crane bringing in the new transformer

The homes in Lakeshore Gardens Mobile Home park have more stability in the electrical supply system as the park is only one transformer away from having all new electrical transformers.

Jack Chambers of Chambers Electric, Inc is the prime contractor for the replacements. The park notified the effected homeowners that the electricity would be off from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. Jack and his crew had the power restored before noon!

Crane Lowering New Transformer

 The crane was from Bob’s Crane Service in Lakeside. The crane that they brought to the park was capable of lifting 75 tons – or 150,000 pounds. The transformer weighed less than a ton so it was a easy job but not simple. The operator had to lift the crane between 4 houses and carry it over the roofs of two houses. We are sure glad it was held up by strong straps as one of the houses was ours!

Finally the new transformer is resting where the old one was taken from. We appreciate the park for replacing the transformers before they blow and for the great work by Chambers Electric and Bob’s Crane Service.
