 I have a motorized crankup tiltover Tristao tower of 3 20 ft sections that
 extends to 54 feet.  The tiltover pivots at the TOP of the base section at
 about 7 or 8 feet so it is nearly balanced on tiltover.  It is on the
 right now due to a move.  It is MUCH heavier than the towers I see on the
 Tower website.  They are the closest thing I have found to what I have but
 do not believe the (unknown) model I have is available today.  It is out in
 the country so I can't measure it to compare to whatever gets posted here.

 73, Jim
