Maybe you could configure something like what I sometimes see on utility
poles where the knife switch is up high on the pole near the HV wires, but
it has a rod that runs  down the pole to a lever at arm's reach from the
ground, that is manipulated and the rod transfers duplicate motion to the
switch.  You would need a lever at the bottom the same dimensions as the
switch, with a pivot arm the same  distance away.  Just raise and lower the
arm, and that would raise and lower the knife switch that is too high to
reach.
