Well, it might not be "big iron", but it's not something you're going to 
lift yourself, put in a midsize car (unless you were wanting to be evil to 
it), or plug in a half used 20 amp circuit.
Definitely a good find, it's not every day those things find their way to 
most people's doorsteps (outside of here) - just hope that phoetoid 
considers what kind of electrical this is going
to require when he plugs all of it in
