Complete static-line tow system
I have a cutom-built static-line tow system which I no longer use since I can't get anyone else in the Chicago area interested in static-line towing anymore. Aero-towing seems to have taken over and has become the default method of towing around here.

So, here's what I have:

1. A Rich Sacher-built reel in a beefed-up frame designed to plug in to any Reese-type trailer hitch
2. A Bill Bryden-built hyraulic line tension control system
3. A beefed-up re-wind motor with a heavy-duty, golf cart solenoid
4. An extra re-wind motor
5. 3,000' of 1/4" hollow-braid polypropylene tow rope

I'm asking $500 for the entire above package.

I also have a 25 watt, 2 meter radio for a tow car which is for sale. It has been modified to operate on the USHPA channels and the NOAA weather channels. I'm asking $100 for the radio.

I'll deliver to Southern Indiana. For more information Call me at 630-325-7147 or respond here. Thanks,

Bill Finn

Hi Jeff,

Rich called me last week saying that he was thinking about buying it. When he asked how much I wanted for it, the conversation kinda trailed off. I don't know if he wants it now or not. Why don't you check with him? If he doesn't want it, it's yours. Yes, it comes with an antenna.
