well, we can too but that puts the main at the bottom and that means you have to feed the feeders around the outside. That does leave you the room for the pipe out of the top but adds some length.

Like I said, overall I like the idea. It would not be that difficult to get used to working with it if necessary.

actually, due to the requirement to keep feeders and branch circuits separated even here, I'm surprised it isn't code down here.

But only if the main breaker is a side to side motion. If it is an up down, we can't mount upside down unless you could reverse the breaker.
