No head included.

Very good condition. All aluminum. Adjusts from 38" to 56" with a silky smooth 4" aluminum crank wheel. The central elevator assembly supasses any I've yet seen for precision in operation and rigidity. The casters have locks for both swivel and rotation and could use some fresh lubrication. A few light scratches here and there, but not many. It's a beauty. If the paint were mildly touched up, and the wheels lubricated (or washers replaced), this pier would be like new.

Weighs 36 lbs. with 80 lbs. load capacity.

I had my Meade AR-6 refractor mounted on this and it worked (and looked) excellent.

I don't have picture posting capability but if you go to QuickSet's website, look for Hercules Specifications Download pdf. Mine is identical to Mobile Pedestal Model # 4-54504-2. It takes about 10 minutes to download on a dial-up connection so you'll have to be patient.

These sell for $1500+ new, and look like it based on the quality of workmanship.
I'm asking for $225 OBO + shipping.

Reason for selling? I just bought a Hercules tripod and this pier doesn't like long flights of stairs. I'll offer a money back guarantee for this pier for 2 days after you receive it minus return shipping.
