You could use a Come along, but I think that you will find it pretty easy to
push the sections in by hand believe it or not as long as you support the
bottom section horizontal and level. You can put a Dolly under the second
section to help as well.

I also remember that with the tower you have that you can remove and fit a
rotator through the very top of the top section, so you would not have to
extended the sections very much.

I have read on here in the past that the US Towers are designed to be
"up" when they are in the horizontal position , but , my concern is since i
have positive pull down , how in the world i would retract it since gravity 
wouldnt be assisting me ? i was hoping to do the rotor work etc... at ground

level but unless i can retract it , i dont see how I can.
