You can use other manufacture's towers of similar size and windload using
the existing concrete slab. It's a simple matter of either drilling and
epoxying in new mounting bolts or using an adapter plate.  I once
installed a 160' Rohn 65G tower on an old crank-up tower base by just
drilling a single hole and using anchor cement for a pier pin.

John, remember that he has an existing concrete base that requires a
certain model tower that only US Towers will sell to him new (or their
distributors). He can’t go buy a Tashjian model unless he wants to go down
the road of excavating and putting in a new base.

Well US Towers apparently do not want to sell to hams.  Tashtowers is
significantly less expensive and the original poster installed a 20 year old
tower. It is highly unlikely that the concrete base would become damaged in
a storm.
