I've never seen one operate, but just from the looks of it, you could easily eliminate one of the two risks with a hi-lift. I have seen handles wack people as often as seeing a lifted truck tip over on a hi-lift. The native rad-flo doesn't have a handle that will wack you, and you aren't swaying it every time you pump for a little more height as you would on a hi-lift.

The other risk....dunno. Maybe since the radflo body isn't a traveler, you could have a mount that grabs that cylinder in two points to keep it more steady. Just thinking out loud. I don't think it's a solve-all for sure, but I like some aspects of the design.

However, it's been around for 3 years, and I've never seen one. There must be something about it (cost?) that keeps it off the trail.
