Pulled up these wires while mowing?


So I was mowing my lawn this morning and the blades from my ride on mower caught these copper wires that must’ve been sticking out from the lawn causing it to jam up. I thought it was just brush /debris at first but when I started tugging on it it seemed to be buried and more of it came out. There is still more buried but I got scared and didn’t want to keep tugging at it without figuring out what it could lead to. It doesn’t have any power to it since i put my voltage tester to it to be on the safe side. Any idea what this could be?

It looks to be transformer windings. Now, how did it get into your lawn? Let the others chime in also.

No clue. Also worth noting this area was overgrown with heavy brush/vines and I just went through it to clear it out with a walk behind brush mower last weekend. So it was the first time i’ve mowed in that area.

For sure looks like old transformer winding. Pull it all out and take to the scrap dealer.
