Outlander DE Mobility Scooter Lift

Offered free, a Pride Outlander DE scooter lift.  Fits 2" hitch receiver. Last used recently on a Ford F150.  One issue encountered - the control box for the lift motor had been located on portion of the lift's frame, on a section made from an extended length of steel bar, which (from going over the brick streets and speed bumps typical of the area) fatigued and cracked; I then performed a field repair to make the lift work (using a steel bracket and c-clamps) but it quickly fatigued even closer to the control box precluding a similar repair.  I consider this a design problem, but fixable.  This the only significant issue that I've encountered on the unit. To make the lift work properly, provision will need to be made to support the control box.  I recommend having an L-shaped bracket fabricated to secure this box to, and attaching the bracket to the lift frame using two square U-bolts.  Another strategy might be used instead. Attached photos are a stock photo of an Outlander DE scooter lift (similar but not quite identical to this model, probably a difference in year) and another photo showing the area where the support fatigued, with my original make-work repair.  A little effort (either hired or done yourself) will provide a useful scooter lift inexpensively.  I'm needing to get it out of my shop, wanting to hand it off to someone who can make use of it. Thanks!
