Lighten up Francis...
There is a LM470 w/ electric winch that just got sold here in
Southern CA for $500.00. I wouldn't have paid more than $300.00 for
it. Its being shipped to the east coast. I remember another local
who thought his MW50 was worth 1600.00. Then it dropped to $800.00,
then $400.00. I got it for $200.00 when it wouldn't sell.. Welcome
to the world of used towers.....and reality.
