Default Medical Isolation Transformer (3240 VA?)... uses, buyers?

I got ahold of a wall-outlet, hospital grade isolation transformer. It has one input, and 6 outputs, each rated for 4.5A. This would mean that since there are 6 of them we have 4.5x120x6=3240VA. This thing weighs about 60lbs.

What are some possible uses for this? I may be able to get up to 8 of them.

At www.toroid.com, they have a 1700 VA model, it sells for $676.00.

If each winding is isolated then you've got 3 240VCT windings, roughly 1kVA per winding.
