If you look at the specs it says max boom length 25ft. There looks like a

Very interesting, but that side mount version bothers me rather a lot.
No matter how strong the rotator itself may or may not be, I find it
difficult to believe that a single leg clamp like that wouldn't simply
twist around on the leg. People have such problems even when using much
larger clamping surfaces on two inch diameter masts with less leverage
than a side mount would have.
Maybe more importantly, the potential rotational torque of a 25 sq ft
antenna in the vertical plane (36 foot boom trying to act like a
propeller) would be incredible ... not sure how it wouldn't bend the leg
of the tower given the roughly seven inch span of the mount.
I really like the stackable mast clamps on the other versions, though
... that's a pretty neat idea. Each is independent so the clamping
forces always add up, and if you need more area you just add more clamps.
