Getting close to ordering a TRX80 raising fixture and was wondering about
The tower is a US Tower HDX555 (900lbs) and the antennas on the tower weigh
about 110lbs total. The mast is 20 foot (not sure what it weighs).
The bottom line is that I want to make sure the raising fixture can handle
the load. I'm guessing that it was designed to raise and lower the tower,
not the tower + antennas, mast and rotator.
Once tilted, I intend to brace the tower with heavy fence posts to take some
of the load off the raising fixture cable.
