Why do you need a tuner with a beam? If they are properly tuned, you should be able to cover a major portion of the listed bands without one.

For low bands and a doublet, perhaps?

I will let other experts comment on whether you need a tuner or not but I will recommend buying the DT version if you end up choosing to buy.  The differential tuner version is a lot easier to tune having to deal with only one tuning capacitor dial.  I have the little brother tuner AT1KM and it works like a champ (even though I do not use it much anymore).
