Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DCronk 200 amp GE Transfer Switch (Generator Hook-Up)
If you shop around you will find that this 200 amp Transfer Switch is the best "Bang for the Buck". The dimensions in the "specifications" are confusing. This is a fairly large box. The correct dimensions are: Height - 30.375 in, Width - 13.25 in (add 2.875 in, to the Width if including the Handle), Depth - 8.375 in. The lugs look small in the picture, because the picture is small. The lugs take up to a 250 awg wire. Which is bigger than the 2/0 cu or 4/0 al wire used on most 200 amp Services. The Neutral bar is included with this box. With some other boxes, they are not. All of these boxes seem to be over priced. This is the best one you will find for the money.

Item arrived in good time and intact. About the only device that will work for this job, and you can't beat the price. Would recommend highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deadeye Lots of room for heavy wire connections.
Nice switch. Lots of room .
Could use additional knock outs, this may be code related? Good box for the money. Would buy again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mack In response to its size....
this is great for basic transfer of power. The size is large but it needs to be to conform to the NEC restrictions on how many degrees you can bend your wire and the cubic inches available. They didn't make it that big on accident.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Simple and cost-effective
Automatic switches are very expensive. By comparison, this manual unit is way less.
Just one warning-- it's giant. There's a lot of room inside to allow you to work with 4/0 cable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gman Very well built.
I will have to admit that I felt it was a lot larger than it needed to be although there was plenty of room to bend 4/0 wire in it. It was pretty easy to install and I am now ready for the next power outage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lastaats It's a good one
Electrician said it was a really good one for our generator. Price was great and shipping was on time. :) I would recommend this transfer switch to anyone with a generator for back-up power.
