Revitalizing my Alumatower

Post by AL7HG » Thu Feb 05, 2004 1:43 pm

I just delivered my 25-year-old self-supporting heavy duty Alumatower to Vero Beach, Fla., where Aluma will completely renovate it -- when I bought the new tower it cost around $500, today one would cost more than $3,000.

Aluma is totally rebuilding the tower, replacing broken rungs, welding cracks and restringing the cable, plus replacing rollers. The total cost, $275 -- amazing! I was expecting it to cost a LOT more.
