Poor Quality  Time owned: more than 12 months
My 2700 is 4 yrs old and the display quit 2 yrs ago. It turns a 4 el 20M beam with 36 ft boom. The clamp casting has broken and all the hardware is badly rusted or corroded. Nobody will repair these except Yaesu with high prices. It is far too complicated to do a simple task. The hardware should last longer. I'll just replace it with a Tailtwister and not worry about salvage.

QUALITY  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have opened a 14 year old rotator wich has turned and hold a th11dxx and 40-2cd (2el 40 m beam cushcraft)in Belgium. We have a least 3 storms a year with 110 km/h, once in 10 years we have 140 km/h.
There was NO usage at all !! , no broken dents, no traces of usage on the bearings.
The grease has become hard that was all.
I cleaned it up, regraesed and realighted the rotor with the controler.
I have to replace the lamp of the controller.

The 2800 serie is an update of this rotator.
The 2700 and 2800 are very well built and will last.
