Oh ya, thanx for posting this idea!
The gears in my head are churning as to how I will incorporate/fabricate one of these onto my car hauler trailer. I'm thinking of some sort of removable setup that hooks into the 2X4 pockets on one of the sides forward of the axles.
Everybody inspired by this post should post your fabrication results on this thread! I will once I get something done.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. If anyone tries this make sure you use high strength steel bolts and definitely back up a wood trailer deck with a thick steel plate from underneath. The leverage/force is high on the back side and you would not want an accident. Furthermore I have the bolts going into two of the trailer steel angle iron frame parts as well as the two by six deck and the 3/8 steel plate. I will be testing this out and will provide feedback if any issues arise. So far I am pleased with it. I want to find a way to attach a safety harness that will wrap around the pump to avoid any possibility of the pump tipping if lifting on a slope.

Thanks Rob,
I will be back on the road traveling North again the end of this week to pickup the second load of non gutted pumps. This will be the ultimate test for this lift idea. Let’s see how well it can hold up!
