Default Mower jack

Just ordered myself a mower jack from Jungle Jim. I had a dealer here that sells them in Ontario so I will have it tomorrow

Here's a link to the Jungle jack

I have always wondered how they worked and what the clearance would be. Right now I lift my mowers and put jack stands on the decks...doing this however is bad for the back.

Let us know how this works out.

They work very well and, in my opinion, are a necessity for a zero turn mower.

It says that it can get you mower 19 inches off the ground which is enough for me to get on my back with an impact driver and remove my blades for sharpening.

I use the jungle jack and it works great especially for my Stander mowers.

Justin,

Take some pictures of them if you can and tell us what you think of the product when you get it. Like a review of the product. I think others would love to hear what you have to say about them.

Justin what made you decide to go with this lift? What were you previously doing to handle this situation?

Needed something to lift my mower to remove my blades. I use to have a shed where I did that before but we don't have a shed anymore. I am currently going to the dealer (when they have time) or going to the neighbor with a chain hoist to get my blades off my mower to get them sharpened. It seems that I have to sharpen them often and clean the deck more often

Getting pictures as we speak. I got it today. Put it together in like 5 minutes.. was more like 10.. i had a piece the wrong way but figure it out haha

I will try to take a video if not i will have pictures for sure.

Already cleaned the whole deck of the mower.. that jack is so solid the mower doesn't even move it's incredible
