Here are some more pics of the lift in use and the add-on frame for  loading Garden tractors. Also have a few pics here of a case 446 hydrostatic drive that when finished will be a case Electrohydrostatic Drive.DSCI0032.JPG DSCI0034.JPG DSCI0035.JPG DSCI0036.JPG DSCI0037.JPG DSCI0038.JPG DSCI0039.JPG DSCI0040.JPG DSCI0041.JPG DSCI0046.JPG

That looks like just the ticket, perfect height. Where did you purchase that from?

Yes they sure do make it nice.  I have an office chair that I sit in and work on the equipment.  Sure saves the back.  If you use yours for a motorcycle get the wheel chock from HF and replace that flimsy wheel chock that comes with the lift.

Hey, I got one of those. Just got it out to shop garage, but working on area to set-up. I was wondering how I was gonna widen it. Was thinking of a 3/4" plywood top all over this top, but wasn't figuring out how to support it. I like what you did better. Think I'll copy, BUT, wonder why a second 2 x 4 alongside that 2 x 8? Is that actually loose and you can widen for bigger tires or narrower tractors? Not all tractors seem to be the same. I have some bigger PKings and MTD 990's, but also have narrower Wheelhorse models to work on. Off to the lumber yard tomorrow! Thanks for the idea.

The 2x4 was added because the first zero turn on there had wider wheels and the whole project was from lumber we already had on hand.
