How about the Yaesu 2800?  It is fairly compact and should be able to turn
your quad with ease.

Subject: [TowerTalk] T2X alternative needed for LM-470

I am currently using a T2X to turn a 40M quad in a windy location.  When the
wind blows, the T2X's ability to turn the antenna is marginal, at best, and
I now believe that the gear train is damaged, since the rotor will only turn
in one direction.  I would appreciate a recommendation on an alternative,
heavier duty rotor that will fit in an LM-470 without major surgery.

CATS supplies a heavier duty replacement for the T2X, but you have to either
cut or bend one of the tower struts in order to get it in the LM-470.
Although I am reluctant to do something like that, I wonder if anyone out
there has done that or similar and how things worked out?

Thanks for your help.

73, Joe
