    Default What panel is this ?

    The Tag said GE, but it had a Cutler-Hammer cover.

    This is NOT a Cutler-Hammer buss...or a GE buss that I have seen before...

    It is from an 1960's house, great shape, but never seen one with nibs like this...

    Label was unreadable under the wires on the left...

    Anyone one know what it is? Anything special about it? Can you still get breakers for it?

    I wrote it up as "Unusual, need research, may not be serviceable"

    The breakers look like Cutler-Hammer classic. From the split bus I would say from the 70s.

    Anything special about a CH "Classic" that I need to tell my client??

    How hard are breakers to get if they want to add a circuit or so?

    The CH are still available today, but the bus style may be different. I don't remember that style, sorry.

    I don't know the answer but know the solution - make some calls to the local electrical supply houses - you should get a good feel for the availability - and if they laugh at you , well - that's an answer too

    Based on the bus design I would say it is a 1960's vintage Cutler-Hammer type CH panel, and it's the last decent residential / light commercial load center left on the market, every other make has cheaped out.

    Have some C-H CHB breakers (bolt-on) branded as a GE, they are for rebranded C-H built GE modular metering equipment.
