::I doubt it could go from 12' to 50' and be four sections.  4*12=48, and
that's with zero overlap between sections.  These towers all had ~2' overlap
when fully extended, so a 4-section that nests at 12' would be at most
(4*12)-(3*2)=42 feet.  The Tri-Ex tower model number system usually had the
first numeric indicating the number of sections, and the following numerics
indicating extended height.  I don't know if there was a T652 or not, but if
there was, it should be six sections, extending to 52 feet.  Does the tower
have a model number plate (usually on or near the winch) that you can read??
