Answer: 
These lugs look small, because the picture is small. The wire used on most 200 amp Services is #2/0 cu or #4/0 al. These lugs will handle wire up to 200 mcm, which is bigger than #2/0 or #4/0.

Answer: 
My electrician says this is for a 200 amp wire and up to 240 v for the house. Becuase this goes in-line in between the house and the outside electric panel. If you have any questions, call an electrician and ask him. They probably won't charge you for an over-the-phone question.

Answer: 
The specs say that the lugs are capable of accepting up to a 250 awg copper or aluminum wire which is plenty big for a 200 amp wire. Typically a 200 amp wire is one size smaller than the rated capacity of the lugs in this unit. Bottom line - it will work.

Answer: 
The housing is rated NEMA 3R, which is suitable for outdoor use within some limitations. I would not install it in an outdoor location that exposed to wind since the enclosure is not rated for wind blown dust.

I am not sure what you mean by double pull? But, this is a double-throw switch. When the handle is in the up position, electricity is feeding in from the Meter Base / Power Company. When the handle is in the down position, electricity will be feeding in from your Generator. The middle lugs are connected to the wire feeding into your Breaker Box and are common (used whether the handle is up or down). The Read More

Answer: 
This switch is rated for 200 amps 240 volts AC. You can, and many people do, feed it with a smaller rated generator. Just know that the genset rating is the maximum power in Watts, that will be going to your load(house).

Answer: 
200A in from both input, 200A out. The switch is not fused so unless your generator is already fused, you will want to fuse the generator line to the switch to protect your generator.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 200 amp ManualTransfer Switch 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. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 14, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value! This is a great value. You can't find a better price around for a manual 200 amp transfer switch. The installation was straight forward and the components appear to be high quality. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed Just what I needed, hard to find at this price and price is GREAT. Everything in the switch box that is needed. Very value priced as compared to other products. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manually transfer 200A - works great This transfer switch does exactly what I need it to do - manually transfer power for 200A panel from the service line to a BA generator. Once mounted to the wall, installing the 00 cooper service wire wasn't "easy" but it was easier than aluminum wire. April 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needed an economic 200 Amp switch. This was a good deal. Shipping was fast. It arrived in good condition. I'm replacing an automatic transfer switch on a non-working generator. Needed a way to tie of the cables, but still offer possibilities for another generator when I get the money for it. This fit the bill without costing an arm and a leg. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value! This is a great box for the money!! It is well built and switching function has a positive feel. April 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It does what it is suppose to, but it is much larger than it should be It does what it is suppose to, but it is much larger than it should be. It also cost more than actually should considering it is just almost empty metal box with couple of contacts in it. It should be designed better and smarter.. January 17, 2012
