Just to be different -- I'd consider Yaesu. I have not had a bit of
mechanical or electrical trouble in 10 years with 4 different units, other
than a lightning strike that took out the pots on two of them in one fell
One benefit of the Yaesus, not often mentioned, is that their DC motors seem able to stand a lot of abuse. I accidentally ran my G-800 (which has a locking rotation rocker switch) up against the side-mount stop and left it on, pushing, for several hours. No harm done.
Also -- excellent indicator design, 450-degree turning capability, clever centering mast clamp design (if properly adjusted, a liability if not) which requires no shims, good connector waterproofing at the rotator, only 5-wire control/power cable required.
