Smile Hydraulic lifts for cars

Do they make lifts that can carry a small car?
Would like to NOT TOW but carry a car on back of my rig? Is this possible?)

I have seen hydraulic lifts for motorcycles, even saw one for a trike, but never one for an automobile. The trike would have weighed about half of a small car and was on a diesel pusher with tag axle. I would not try this on a single axle rig or a gas coach, too much "tail wag".

Adding 2,500# aft of the rear axle....

That would be like bumper-pulling a 20,000# trailer.

The physics suggest that it is possible. Sanity says it is unwise.


Many years I have pictured a Diesel pusher with a Mini or Fiat supported on davits. It's just not practical.

Though, there might be golf cart or Miata stowage available if you give up some slightly aft of amidships basement space?
