I have had several TriEX LM-470 towers and none of them used "J" bolt
anchors. TriEX system uses Steel 'Flags' (with mounting holes ) welded to
Large Diameter Re-Bar cage that is imbedded in the concrete. On the other
hand US Tower does use 1" or larger 'J'-bolts originally, but now they supply
bolts with Hex heads which does provide adequate anchoring. I have a new
set of US Tower base mounting bolts that I bought for a planned relocation
of a US HD-589 tower that never materialized. They are heavy, but
shippable via UPS and they were expensive. If interested maybe we can make a
contact me off list - firstname.lastname@example.org_ (mailto:email@example.com) .
If I have misunderstood your application of the 'J' bolts for mounting the
LM-470 please clarify what I may have missed.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Anchor bolts for LM470
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Looking for a good source of anchor bolts to be used on LM470 tower.
Needing 6 bolts about 1" by 27" with J bend or angled.
Spec seems to call for ANSI F155 4 grade 55 bolts. Anyone have spares or
know a good source in Midwest US? Glen W5IF
