I may have the opportunity get one of these towers gratis. I've found this data, but I can't seem to find the maximum antenna weight allowed.

Also seeking one of their "concrete mount post" assemblies.

doesnt it say it right on the chart?

Normal antenna height and retracted antenna height.

Those look sweet.

Just get it

Did you read the chart? No, it doesn't say.

I did some serious digging and the only thing that keeps coming up is different versions of the wind loading chart you already have.

All appear to be scans of original E-Z Way docs, none of which mention anything other than the tower component weights.

I'm starting to suspect the design is wind load limited and that's why there's no weights.

I see extended and retracted heights in the link for each model

what am I missing?

ETA: I thought you asked max antenna height, but you said weight

I found another document that lists antennas E-Z Way thought appropriate for the tower. Heaviest was 90lbs. That will easily hold a Cubex quad, rotator and switch.

Now the problem is finding someone to fabricate a mounting post for it with a tilt-over hinge. I don't know anyone who does that sort of thing locally. Anyone know a custom tower fab shop that could design, fab and ship me one?
