went on a search for fulton winches a couple of weeks ago after my old TowTek 
conked out.  here is a brief summary:

appropriate fulton winch for this tower is either the K-1550 which came 
standard or the K-2550 which handles a heavier load (not necessary) and also 
has a better mechanical advantage.

these winches are available from Northern Tool, Grainger, et al

a winch with a standard handle will not clear the tilt fixture which sits 
outside the tower structure.  

Karl Tashjian offers both winches with handles altered to clear the tilt 
fixture.  the custom handle is not needed for the tilt fixture.

thanks to all for the tips and leads.  I installed the new K-2550 this morning. 
 the extra mechanical advantage is nice.



See:  for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather 
Stations", and lot's more.  Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions 
and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
