One of the pitfalls of e-mail , once you hit the send switch you realize that
there were other things you might have added to the description hi!
Bracing is made of solid rod the lattice work is a combination of X braces at
the top each section and X braces at the bottom of the smaller sections
interspersed with 45 degree diagonal braces reversed and welded and galvanized
in the remaining areas , there are no roller
guides just several pieces of curved welded bracket positioned along the tubular areas.
BTW there are four sections in this tower and it easily weights about 1200 + lbs. or more.
I Guess it would crank up to 70+ ft fully extended.
I appreciate some of the responses I've received to date however no positive identification
I guess worst case scenario is that I might install it and never really know what brand it is.
