Geezzz, If you are like me , you have experienced many ROTOR failures over the years - from problems with controllers, direction sensors, to a SHAFT actually shearing off - W7CY has a new product , w

Very interesting, but that side mount version bothers me rather a lot. No matter how strong the rotator itself may or may not be, I find it difficult to believe that a single leg clamp like that woul

I have concerns about the side mount too. There is no way I would mount a big yagi like that. Mike W0MU W0MU-1 CC Cluster w0mu.net _______________________________________________ ____________________

Well, it isn't a very good picture of it, but on further inspection, it looks like there is a third clamp on the second leg of the tower via an outrigger. But I did have to look twice. Nonetheless,

Well, I took a really hard look at that picture and it's difficult to tell what exactly that bar might be. The text doesn't describe it, so I guess we'd just have to wait for someone who has seen one

It is great to see new rotators enter the market place however don't see how this product http://www.cytorq.com/files/Download/ULINK%20CYdwinder%201500%20DS%204%2011%2012.pdf compares to a TIC ring r

Actually I've had very few failures. I've tended to stay away from the ham series and anything with wedge brakes. That not to say I haven't used a few and even overloaded them a bit, but they just we

Not sure it answers the problem entirely, but Dave, I noticed there is a bar that connects box to a second tower leg. That spreads out the load, but I'm not convinced that it's by enough. Curious as

The cost of 999 plus a controller is about the same as ring or close isn't it? You get 360 rotation and what appears to me to be a balanced load around the entire tower. Many sidemounts I have seen h

For a medium duty rotator (like the ham series) it looks nice and fits inside a 25G, but what doses it use for a brake? Is it planetary gears. As for the side mount, I'll pass. That's a lot of torque
