Takes forever ??? I can not understand that...,, as long as there is
not rust in the joints, you should be able to get it down in less than an hour by gin pole. If you don't mind paying a little,, a bucket truck is quicker, as long as they can get close by the tower..Actually, my bucket truck "basket"is rated for 500lbs, and could pick up the entire tower. Other practices are to hinge the base, or set pulleys on a pole or tree and lay it down.. However, this likely may mess up the base section at ground level.. Your question needs more info on how the base section is attached to foundation
for faster alternatives.
That would answer the overall best way to do it,, but gin pole is quick...Good Luck,, Dan N4GNR ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mike Lyon" <>

So I have erected many towers using a standard 12 foot gin pole, works
great, but takes forever. However, what is the best practice these days for
removing a 50-60 ft Rohn 25 tower? Gin pole or is there an easier way?
