    Where are you proposing to mount it? I'd  say the only place you could 
mount it feasibly is on the bottom section. Any  other place and the added 
weight of this brute sidemount will exceed the  capacity of the tower 
immediately even with no antenna on it. .  

Montgomery County is an 85 MPH windspeed zone and  it's tough getting any 
crank-up with much capacity over 70 MPH. 
    If you proceed with this plan, be sure to keep  your homeowner's 
insurance paid up because you're going to need it.
