You'd have to try quite hard to get a low enough body resistance to do yourself much damage with 25 Volts though Steve - perhaps stand in a bucket of brine and wear a tin hat!

Still don't fancy it after being on my knees on a damp field. Maybe I'm just a bit over cautious, but as I had access to rubber matting thought rude not to borrow a meter or 2...

I have a pump that would load most engines well enough, all that can do is give me a bath when it goes wrong. Lol

But I suspect that a 2kv generator is somewhere in my future

You can't have a chatter with a load of mates with a few beers in the light of a pump though

After a few beers you wouldn't be that bothered surely.

Ah, but you could use the pump to dispense the beer?

The transformers are normally centre tapped to earth so you only have a 55V potential on each leg for site safety.

Yes it will run 110V kit OK
