Since the thread on recabling crankups has flourished I have decided to to test
I am planning on installing a crankup this summer and would like the experience
and opinions of the toweretalk group.
Present plans call for a Cushraft 40 above a tribander with a 2 el 12/17. I am
assuming 15 foot of mast out the top and either a 55 or 70 foot crankup. I
have catalogs from U.S.Tower, Tri-Ex and Hygain/Telex which seeem to be a bit
lax on information.
1. What are the best/worst ways to get it out of the truck ? This seems to be
my worst problem as I live on a slight hill and one of the towers looks to
weigh 1680 lbs !
2. Any brand recommendations or are they basically the same ?
3. What kind of loads do you have on yours. I am especially interested in the
large mast (at least 15 feet out of tower) an dwhat types of loads you have.
4. Any other issues I need to worry about or need to know.
Please post to me and I'll summarize. If there is a summary in let me know.
