> I am looking for a used self supporting crank up tower to install at a
location in Nevada for contesting. I already have in place 10 cubic yards of
steel reinforced concrete with 1 inch diameter by 36 inch long anchor bolts
imbedded in the concrete. The anchor bolts are spaced 9 inches apart which
will accommodate a US Tower tubular tower Model MA-770 with the MARB-770
free standing Rotor Base and the early Tristao 70 +/- foot crank up tubular
> Are there other towers which would accept an anchor bolt pattern of four
inch diameter anchor bolts spaced 9 inches apart?
Hiya, Ted --
I wouldn't worry about the bolt pattern. The existing bolts can be
chopped off with a hand grinder and then you can rent a drill with a concrete
or a hammer drill to drill new holes. Epoxy in the new anchor bolts and
you're good to go. Construction guys do this all the time and it works great.
you're done, the epoxy is typically stronger than the concrete.
