What a way to end the year. Kenwood has announced new rebates on nearly ALL of their ProTalk Radios. With the purchase of 6 radios, you can get $20-$35 back per radio. Plus, they’re throwing in a multi-charger.
We’ve gone over their great features, durability, and versatility before. And below we go over how to disable a feature that might be a bit pesky depending on your situation. But for now, let’s look at the rebates. You can also click here to see the form and the instructions on how to claim your cash.
The three most popular radios, the TK-3400U4P, the TK-3230, and the PKT-23 are all on the list. Get $25 back on the 3400U4P. Choose either the 4 channel or 16 channel model. Also, both the PKT-23 and the TK-3230 have $20 rebates. This is essentially like getting 1 radio for free! Can’t beat that. Oh, and don’t forget about the FREE six unit charger… The rebates are live now, and run through December 31st. Don’t miss out on these deals!
Now about those features. In the video below, we go over how to disable the Superlock setting Kenwood's TK Series of two-way radios. Watch the video to see this feature.
Now, these radios are some of the most popular, and we know our customers rely on them everyday. We carry enough to outfit your entire crew, and can get them to you in a jiffy.

It’s that time again… We’ve cut prices on the AB Chance Swivel Mount Capstan Kit. We haven’t run this type of deal since the end of last year, so jump on it while you can. The kit includes everything required to get to work with the AB Chance 1,000 lb Capstan Hoist. And it’s all certified to work together. No hodge podge of gear here.
The AB Chance Capstan Hitch Assembly with Swivel is designed by the engineers at Hubbell, the same folks that designed the capstan. So you know it’ll work safely and seamlessly.
Plus, since it swivels, you can get the capstan aligned perfectly with the tower. Everyone has been on the jobsite where there’s a tree, fence, ditch, shed, or building preventing you from lining your truck up to properly rig the capstan.
A perfect example is the photo above. This crew had purchased a kit that only included a 90° mount. Unfortunately, they were on a guyed tower that had a lot of equipment they had to work around. To make matters worse, they were in a very wooded area, so there were only a few places they could get their truck. They ended up coming into our shop seeing what their options were. Once they saw the swivel mount, the regretted trying to save a buck buying a limited mount.
No worries with this set up. Simply get your truck close to where you need it, then, spin the mount around to align your capstan. Then get to lifting.
Click here to see the deal, and do it fast. You have until Monday, July 13th to save some dough. Then, check out our unboxing video to see how it’ll arrive at your doorstep.

Spring is around the corner. Which means the busy summer season is next. Get prepped now with new Kenwood rebates! Save up to $30 per unit on radios like the best-selling TK-3400U4P.
Now through the end of April, get $20-$30 back when you buy six or more radios. Tower climbers love the 3400U4P because we have it specially packaged with a stubby antenna, which doesn’t get in the way while you’re cruising up and down the tower. Get $25 back per radio when you buy 6! Oh, and since you’re getting six, consider snagging a KMB-28 Six Unit rack charger. It lets you charge up to 6 radios at a time in a convenient rack style charger. Once it arrives, watch our How-to Install video below to get it up and running.
The pint-sized PKT-23K is also in rebate mode this session. This radio is smaller than a deck of cards, but still packs in 1.5 Watts of communicating punch. Get $20 back per radio when you buy six or more of ‘em.
That’s just the short list of all rebate options available. See them all here. Also, check out our ever-growing two-way radio playlist here. Then, once you’ve made your decision, give us a call or chat us online to get your order into our sales robot, and we’ll get it out the door.
