Thanks for the reply...well I've been using a "Hazer" on my 68 foot test
tower for ten years...and it works great...|
It's nice to build antenna's at waist height then crank it up for testing etc....then run it a month or two just to be sure, before it goes up on one of the big towers...
See: If your interested, http://www.kc4pe.com/amateurshack.htm
But now approaching age 70 and sporting a new right knee...the hand crank is getting a little old..now Glen-Martin offers a winch as an option but I thought I would get some real good-positive feedback from this group...oh I hear of the steel plate-box that holds the winch in place outside the tower--with a series of pulleys to guide the SS cable, and the Amp meter monitors with safety kickouts, in case of a jam, etc....but that was years ago..and certainly today there must be a "Better Mouse Trap"
Oh I've seen in my travels some pretty neat trollies on 45-55G towers that were quite stout.... but not the 360 hazer type....(see the enclosed file)
OK...any constructive idea's...??

Dave, I've made some comments on this issue, but missed one... Why would anyone want a 2000# or 6000# wench or a hazer? Just seems like one is trading one set of problems for another! :-)
