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.
