Good Value  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I put this one up for an A3S, which is about the limit of its rated windload. Dead easy. I could have walked it up alone with a pole but chose to just tie off a line to the pickup. It's a small tower, so larger rotators can be a tight fit, but you shouldn't need anything so large to turn the antennas this one is rated to handle. Lube the joints before trying to join the sections, or it will be a struggle. Keep a hammer handy when you raise it. When it's under load, you may have to tap around on the connecting plates on the hinge base to get the last bolt in. For the money, this is a deal. I pre-mounted aluminum angle with braces and pulleys as wire antenna supports before putting it up.
