That's kind of odd. I've been using a PST-61D to turn an OB16-3 and an OB2-40 for about four years now with only one issue, and that was due to a humongous lighting strike that fried my controller even though I had suppressors on all the lines. The motor still worked fine.

I don't remember if the motor in the PST-61D is fused or not, but I'd certainly trouble shoot the thing to make sure it wasn't something simple before spending close to two grand to replace it.

Hello Folks,

I need some suggestions on a heavy duty rotor. First, my conundrum.

I have a Universal HD21-70 tower with an Optibeam 12-4. The rotors have
been all Prosistel brand. Three of them in 2 years! All replaced because of
failure due to design flaws or bad parts. The first two were 2051 series
and the one that I just put up in August 2012 is a 61d series.  That just
failed two days ago.  It just stopped turning.  First thoughts were that
the shear pin is broken.  However upon testing with a 12v supply, there are
no amps being drawn leading me to believe the motor is dead.  Exactly 3
months later its dead!  What's the deal with these rotors?

Anyway, needless to say I now have to replace the rotor again.  What say
the masses for a product that is of quality and durability which can turn
the OB12-4?  Its time to change manufacturers.  There must be something
going on with the quality of workmanship with Prosistel( sorry Gianni I
cant make this up).

Thank you for any help and/ or suggestions.
