    How much tower are you putting up? That is a lot of rebar!!!

    U.S. Towers TX-472, 72 feet + mast and antenna will equal just over 85 feet. It is a free standing tower. Required a 5X5X7.5 base. It was actually dug 6X7X8. Took 11 yards of concrete. The rebar cage was over engineered, it really didn't require this much rebar but the concrete contractor decided to do it like this.
