I am told that this is the formula for tower work:   Actual time =  Estimate 
* PI
This is 4 hours 42 minutes in your example.

No ... one tower is sitting waiting for the monobanders to be placed
on the mast and then pulled up on its hinged base to the vertical
position ... about 1 hour's work.  The monobanders are ready to install.

The other two towers are 56' HDBX towers with masts/pulleys to support
the ends of wire antennas.  Another 1 hour's work if Gin-poles are
used (I don't own one).  Perhaps 90 minutes at max.
