I guess my offer of $2500 didn't get to Bill.
Since when does a quad need to be at 85 feet? If his LP was happy at 70' 
plus, I got to believe that the quad would work at that height too.  What 
Bill refuses to believe is that a 10+ year old crank-up tower is not worth 
$4500 or more.  Must be the bidding didn't go well.  I've bought 3 in the 
last 10 years and $1800 is the most I've paid for any of them.  And that 
included the tilt over fixture and the motorized paraphernalia(come to think 
of it, I don't think I've ever seen a LM470 without being motorized), but 
I've never seen a LM70 either.
