Posted by gfretwell:
My wife did a bunch at her club and just setting the pole and hooking up the wires is about an hour. You still need to stage the job and add in some "risk" for things you don't plan on so 3 hours may be a good guess for pole #2 or 3 and on. Once you get the routine down, they start rolling (...)

Re: Control panel location
Posted by sparkyinak:
Thanx. all too often, We run into areas that require 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound box. Some controllers come with a remote panel.
