I have 2 towers available to me and I need your input....

option 1.  is a heavy duty E-Z Way 54' crank up Tilt over .. It is still
in the ground I will have to remove it  ( get the 600 + lb wonder pole
out of the ground ) transport it 10 miles dig another 7'x4' hole and re
install it here. To me this seems like a nightmare.  This tower is in
good shape but will need new cable and one winch will need replacement $

Option 2.  is a 72' Tri-Ex motorized HZN series. This is an old tower
but is in very good condition.  This tower will require only a 3x3 base
footing into which (3) 6" bolts are used to secure the base plate.  This
tower  requires (3)  1 3/4" tripod support legs each of which affix to
the top of the base section at 20' and are attached to brackets which
are encased in 12"x12" concrete at 7'2" outfrom the tower base.
   This installation will require lots less digging but has a larger
foot print. it will have to be transported approx 90 miles but I figure
this could be done with a boat trailer
$ 1000
I would like to hear some expert opinions on this one..
