    Lawn Mower Jacks

    What is the groups opinion of the best heavy duty lawn mower jack to change blades on a heavy mower like the Scag 52" Tiger Cat II?
    I have a 300 lb. capacity MoJack but was thinking about the Mojack Pro which has a 750 Lb. capacity. What is everyone's thoughts on the MoJack Pro? Is their something better out there that does a better job??

    I am thinking the 300 lb. capacity may be a little light duty for the Scag.

    I use a bumper jack from a 1968 chevy for my Ferris IS2100Z, works great!

    I use my 4-ton floor jack with an 8"x8"x16" block of wood. No need to reinvent the wheel. I almost bought an electric forklift. They only wanted $100 for it because all the batteries were dead. Worked if plugged in. I waited too long to make up my mind.

    Re: Lawn Mower Jacks

    Been using a floor jack for over 20 years, with no accidents or problems. If I feel uncomfortable, I add a couple of jack stands.
    This is only my opinion, and many will say it ain't worth a darn, as I'm only a retired grease monkey instructor and not a professional mechanic. Use what I post at your own risk as you know teachers only know book knowledge.

    I have an engine hoist which works a lot better than a jack, just so long as you remember to duck under the boom
    Occasionally I even use it for removing engines.
    Outside I have a yard crane from an explosives plant where electric anything was a no no.
    For quick things like blade changes I use some tall ramps with flat surfaces they are about 14" which is more than enough space to get under a deck and of course very quick.
    Got another set for the service van, easier, faster and a lot more secure than any jack

    Re: Lawn Mower Jacks

    I picked up a 550 lb capacity heavy duty jack from Tractor Supply: Cub Cadet HD lift
    I've used it on everything from a 48" Gravely ZTHD to a couple of very large commercial zero turns, and it works great. Since it cradles both front tires (and secures them in the cradle with straps) it's very safe, and it raises the front of the mowers higher than anything else I've used (except the bucket on a front end loader). Very easy to use, and truly a well made piece of equipment.

    I recently upgraded from a small mower lift to a Fischer 750 Lbs. Heavy Duty ATV/Mower High Lift Jack from Harbor Freight for $189.99. It's heavy duty and well built and does a great job of lifting my zero turns.
