If you don't trust yourself pushing a wheelbarrow, or if the pour is a
considerable amount greater than a few barrows full, you can rent a Georgia
buggie to haul the concrete from the mixer truck to the hole. I had rented
one for my tower pour, but didn't need it. The driver was skilled enough to
be able to back right up the the hole.
Here are a couple of applicable pix of my installation:
