Great rotor!!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have owned this rotor since 9/2008. Its a great rotor that has automatic breaking. Just pretend its an old T.V. antenna rotor and turn the dial! I am using it to turn my Mosley PRO-67B which weighs 110 lbs. It works like a charm!

Just to mention, the rotor comes with 100 feet of cable. I'm mentioning this as I did not know that when I ordered it and bought extra cable.

Strong & Reliable  Time owned: more than 12 months
When I first opened the box I thought "This ain't no Tailtwister!". And it's not - it's better than the HDR-300 I had before! The 2800 has worked flawlessly for over three years with over 300 lbs of antenns and a 21 foot tall mast on top of it (and a thrust bearing). Great rotor!

Rugged  Time owned: more than 12 months
My G-2800DXA has been up for 4 years now. Since I am a very active contester, this rotator has been used way more than the average ham would. I have made 55,000 qso's in that period and the rotator plays like its brand new.

Mine is turning a M-Squared 40M3L, a good sized (30 ft boom and 47 ft elements) 3 element 40m yagi, plus a 3 el SteppIR. It hasnt missed a beat.

Very rugged unit and I recommend it.
