one source you might check out is Heights Tower Systems:

My tower is a crank-up/foldover.  I purchased a motorized screw winch
which folds the tower to the ground without the handcranking, it is very
nice and fast.  They also have motorized systems for cranking the tower
up.  I don't know what the cost of the motorized raising system would
be.  The crank over winch system's cost was about 650 dollars; they also
have a heavy duty 4ft platform, with heavy duty folding plates  for this
fixture which is another 900 dollars but very efficent and nice.
