I had a Tri-Ex crank up and tilt over tower for 28 years at the same
location and I thought at the time that I didn't need the motorized unit.
Major, major mistake.
Especially if you want or need to raise and lower it more often than you
originally expected.
Pay the money.....small potatoes considering the usefulness of it.
That was in California....around would be every week or so......

Good Morning Gentleman,
I am brand new to tower talk and to my TX-455, so please excuse me if this
is a duplicate question from a past entry.
In the process of my TX-455 installation I found it necessary to raise and
lower it a couple of times, not being Arnold Swartzenager I also leaned very
quickly its not something I want to do too often. 
So, My question is, has anyone found success with a generic 110v winch that
would replace the hand crank unit and be far less costly than the US Tower
$1500+ power unit? 
I also have the razing fixture but I am not concerned about it as I do not
believe it will be necessary to tilt over the tower as often as I may want
to raise and lower the unit.
Thank You in advance for any help you may be able to provide,
Wayne, W7WAC
