Problem: Flag Difficult to Raise or Lower on a 100’ Steel Flagpole

The large 30’ x 60’ flag sits on top of a 100’ steel pole. Raising or lowering the flag became a difficult and time-consuming task.

Upon inspection by Michael Hertig, owner of Mr. Flagpole Maintenance, found the rotating truck at the top of the pole was destroyed due to weather, high forces and time. The rotating truck controls flag raising and lowering.
