I have a HamIV and a 1000SDX Yaesu right now on 2 towers.  Both have had 
issues.  I have owned them less than 3 years.  The HamIV had a brake problem 
and needed to be repaired.  It was painless and quick at Norm's for about $100. 
 Other than that, no issues.

The Yaesu has had no problems on the rotor but the boxes are a constant 
problem.  They are VERY suseptable to damage if there is electrical storms in 
the area.  If you own a Yaesu rotor I would constantly leave the box 
disconnected when you are not using it.  Plus the Yaesus are a nghtmare to get 
fixed...long and expensive and you can only go to Yaesu.

I would not buy another Yaesu because of the repair problems and weak control 
box design.
