This is heavy duty  Time owned: unknown months
I have this rotor on a 5 el 20m Yagi (46' boom) which develops about 3200 ft/lbs of torque. This rotor is rated at 8000, 4 times that of the G1000. It uses a different concept in controlling the power to the rotor by pulsing the DC, keeping the motor at maximum torque all the time. It also has an auto start and auto slow down feature which results in some overshot as the rotor slows to a stop. This really reduces the fatigue on the rotor, tower and all the antenna parts. It's pricy, but worth it for those large arrays.
