Hydralift on CC

Anyone using a Hydralift or similar rear-mounted lift on their CC to haul a golf car? I am considering this option so we can take our golf car along on trips.

Looking for pros and cons.

They don't do one for golf car, motorcycles/scooters only according to their FAQ's.

FWIW, we looked pretty hard at both the cruiserlift and the hydralift. Made a point of actually following one of each, (more by luck then anything else). There was quite a difference. The hydralift sure seems to be a bit more sturdy with the bike and lift moving around less than on the cruiserlift. I'm guessing both will do the job, but when we got a chance to pick up a used hydralift in good shape for about half price, that made the choice easy.

Infinity Coach in Sumner, Washington installed my last one and they showed me one that was done either for a Quad or Golf Cart.
This is my second one (coach & HydraLift) and works great with a 800 LB Harley.

I spoke again with tech support at Hydralift yesterday. He told me they are now not recommending use of their standard Hydralift with sports adaptor for electric golf cars. They have now developed a lift with more heavy hardware and hydraulics. They also now have an aluminum platform that attaches for golf cars and other larger than motorcycle toys. However, the approximate cost of this heavier stuff with installation is north of $9K. Plus I would still have to remove my fairly heavy Blue Ox tow bar from the receiver every time I want to load/unload the golf car. Given this new info and cost, I lean more to a truck.

That is getting a bit pricey!! I had been towing my Ford Escape by using the Coach Receiver instead of the Receiver on the HydraLift without having to take the tow bar off BUT one time I negotiated steep incline while in a turn and the Hydra Lift made a nasty gouge in the hood of the car. I now tow using the Hydra Lift Receiver (further aft) but now I do have to take the rather heavy Demco Tow Bar off before loading or unloading. I decided it was worth the trouble.
