For sale,

 I am selling an 8m telescopic winch up / tilt over antenna mast. 

This mast used to be used as a mobile lighting tower and was attached to a trailer. It has been modified to be ground mounted and is 99% complete.

It needs a lick of paint and that is about it. Comes with a brand new winch and marine grade stainless winch wire.

Needs a couple of strong people to lift :)
