Lift to fit a Hannigan Trike????

Anyone out there with a Hannigan trike found a lift wide enough to accommodate Hannigan's wide ass?? I measured the distance from the inside edge of the tread of the tires at 45-46 inches. Outside to outside is about 55-56 inches. My trike weighs in at 1180 lbs. Most lifts are 1000 lbs max and only 48 inches wide with extensions. Handylift does have a 1500 lb model but still is only 48 inches wide. I did find one Ranger lift that will handle 1650 lbs and is 53 inches wide. That leaves about 1-2 inches of tire hanging off each side. I would like to find a lift that the whole thing will go on. Any ideas out there?

If it were me, I'd go with the Handy Lift Bob. As you said, 1500 lbs, but slightly too narrow with extentions. Plenty of "meat" in that area though, so why not make custom extentions to suit, and then corner the market for trike tech sessions in your area.

Trike Lifts

The only problem with the HandyLift BOB is the price once you add the extensions, tire vise, shipping etc.. Your in the $1800 range. I did get a hands on view of the Ranger previously mentioned. It was made of the same guage steel as the Handylift and had all the accessories for $940 and free shipping. Additional extensions wouldn't be that hard to make. I was hoping someone knew of a lift that already met my requirements without modification.
