I can confirm Richard's experience. I have had a 78 ft version (counting the
5 ft fold-over stand) for over 5 years. It works very well. You can fold it
over or raise it in about 15 minutes. I have a SteppIR 3 element with 30/40m
dipole kit on top, and plan to upgrade to a larger version soon.
For full disclosure: I designed the fold-over mechanism for them, but
otherwise have no financial interest.
You can also find some reviews, mostly positive, on E-ham.com.

I put up a Heights foldover over the last year. I works quite well
and is very well built. Just don't be in a hurry because it takes a
while. In all fairness, the first thing Heights told me was that if
I was in a hurry, go elsewhere.
