I'm just passing this along. Seems like a pretty good deal. They're $336.00
per section currently.
Please respond to the originator directly - tnx.
> Hello every one,
The 24 straight sections of R-55 are still for sale.
I am asking $150 per section. These sold new for $230/section in 1990 and
while rohn is no longer in business ,Valmont and (I think) Radian make spare
parts for these.
Buy all 24 sections for the $3600 total and I'll throw in the guy
wire(including 1500' of new guy wire), the turnbuckles and anchor plates, 2
anchor rods(8') and the top and bottom plates.We also have most of the bolts
nuts in case you want to reuse them.
Also available is the lighting kit which includes your choice of a homebrew
solid state flasher, or an older mechanical ROHN flasher & control box. Also
1 - 300mm Beacon fixture, and a dual OB1 obstruction (sidelight) assembly,
and the associated cables made from outdoor UV resistant romex.
This all at a package price for $700.
These sections were up for 17 years are painted red/white and still in good
to very good shape. The paint is peeling but the steel and galvanizing are in
very good shape. This was taken down by Sammy Smith in May this year and no
damage was incurred then. You may want to contact Sammy for a second opinion
or a reference.
Parts of this tower had fallen 17 years ago and during re-erection, one
section busted loose one of the daigonal rebars when we emergency lifted 120'
tower plus antennas & feedlines. ALL sections are straight and in very good
shape other than the above mentioned daigonal rebar.
We can also repaint this tower if needed for $500 or $21/section.
If you've read this far, Thanks for looking & 73
