You must have built a much wider add on. The add on wooden frame on ours is only 42 inches wide and the 2x4's going across have a 1x4 underneath them inside the width of the oringinal frame to help stabilize it. Also our lift has only a 1000 lb Capacity. What is the weight of that 990? The pump handle problem was solved by removing it and putting it in a vise and bending it outward until it stuck out passed the boards. Hope this helps.

Mine is 48" wide but I also used 1 x 6 under the plywood to make a frame that sits into the channel of the table to add stability. Make sure you service your jack and grease it regularly. I've had a variety of tractors on mine with out any problems most recently a JD 320.
I did cut out part of the extention so I could get at the foot pedals but bending it outs some might be a good option.

Widening the metal base might be a good idea. I would go with a stout piece of square tubing (2 inch square thick wall) and maybe adjusting bolts on the end for an unlevel floor.
