If I piss (technical term) someone off I apologize in advance!
I my humble opinion H.F. makes disposable tools.... Use them a few times
and throw them away....
Great prices on many things beating the heck out of anyone's prices... There
is a reason for that.
They are great for the very casual user but to risk your $3000.00 to
$5000.00 investment (or more) for your tower,
rotor and antenna's on a cheap winch is ludicrous.
Remember "You get what you pay for"
Me.. I prefer to pay the price for the investment that I have!
