Not really. turn radius x wt = effective moment c31xr 23.8 x 82 = 1952 ef240 25.1 x 38 = 954 mast 0.083 x 140 = 12 total effective moment = 2918 ft pounds. The t2x is rated for 3400 ft-lbs, so you are good. ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.
