    This was purchased as part of the SunTura HD dual axis solar package.
    Since this and the electronics are the only parts I have currently install I feel I couldn't comment on the full package yet!
    This actuator is currently classed as a Heavy duty actuator by windynation when in fact now a days it should be classed as a medium duty actuator as I've seen some rated at over 6000 lbs.
    However this moves my current array nicely it is a nice solid actuator.
    It has only been in operation for a little over a month so far so I may be a little premature in stating I've very impressed.
    We're heading into the winter season which can be harsh here.:confused:
    I'm concerned about ice build up during times of freezing rain so I may install some sort of protection over the actuator arm ( maybe a bicycle inner tube) held in place with zip ties.;)
