I've had one of those towers for over 40 years.  Mine is seven eight foot 
sections.  My hinge is 16 feet up.  At the top there is an A4 with a two 
meter beam below that.  Up until a couple of weeks ago I had to raise and 
lower the tower with a hand crank that came with the tower.  I just 
installed their gear motor and I love it.  Instead of working up a lot of 
sweat turning that crank I now just flip a switch and up or down it goes. 
The one caveat though is that I have to wait for a day when the wind is 
calm.  Some years ago I didn't concern myself with that and the wind twisted 
a couple of sections into scrap.
