Default MC lift table modification

In addition to my old HF lift table I bought a bigger
Derrick Weaver W-1500 XLT lift.

Love the lift but the side extension are a pain to put on and take off.
I love them on when putting the bike on the lift
but they get in the way of getting close to the bike when
it is up in the air.

So I came up with this mod and just finished it today.
Got some heavy duty hinges and mounted to the sides.

Also cut the long support pipe in half so I can put only one
side down if I like.

Very nice Declan, sending an elbow bump as a pat on the back is no longer considered prudent.

I like that a lot! I need side extensions on my lift table. That is a great addition to your lift

on mine,
I was going to weld in a pipe to the main lift and have the extensions fit inside that one, but then decided it was best to just store them elsewhere..

Nice job.
