Rotator for 7698 roof top ... ?

Have my 7698 mounted on the roof and aimed the best I can. Would be handy to have a remote rotator for fine tuning. Which ones work best for this antenna on a 6' mast?

Grassi.

The Channel Master 9521A is popular, but I don't think it would hold up very long with that big antenna. The rotator needs to be closer than 6' from the antenna or use a thrust bearing.

A ham rotator would last longer, but they are more expensive.
