In a few months I will be installing a US Tower HDX-72MDPL.
The mast I purchased with the tower was US Tower's M-15R which is a 2" O.D.
x 15 ft. reinforced galvenized mast, weighing 50 pounds. All their masts
have .120" walls and the M-15R has a steel pipe insert in the lower half of
the mast giving that area a .250" wall thickness.
I question whether this mast is adequate.
The bottom four feet will be in the tower, though a thrust bearing and
connected to a new T2X rotor.
The top will have a TH11DX just above the top of the tower and a 402-CD ten
feet above that.
We are in an 80 mph wind zone.
Questions: Is the mast adequate? If not, what should I use?
Is the rotor adequate? If not, what should I use?
Thanks for your collective wisdom.
