into the problems with the unequal switching times that can give trouble
when trying to parallel up two devices with totem pole outputs

Just a thought....

The 4428 has different propagation delay times in each section due to its 'non-symetrical design. Although this may be minor I could see the difference on a fast scope and it did affect the switching in a 1500kHz transmitter I was working on.
It may not be important at 73k, but it's worth remembering.
I recall using 2 TC4429 chips which I seem to remember are single high current inverters.
