Dang thats a good deal!!! I got mine for last christmas for $370.17 I haven't actually used it yet but it looks really solid and should last a lifetime. I would jump on that offer!

That is an INCREDIBLE deal!!! I bought mine for a little over $400 last summer. Its a great lift and makes changing blades and cleaning the underside of the deck a breeze.

If you want a mojack, I'd jump on that deal.

Our local orschlen's store had them at like $175 a year or 2 ago. I thought it was funny that they were selling them at 100 bucks cheaper then me as the dealer can even buy them.

Do yourself a favor and get it now! I paid 214.00 with tax last year from HD. The product is not sold every where so when deal comes along grabb it. I also bought a set of jack stands fron harbor freight for extra safety. This will save you time when servicing the machine.

Hey Dave How long have you had this? What type of mower also who makes this?

For those that have the workbench attachment. Is it easy to remove and use it as a jack for the zero turns, or is it cumbersome disassembly? Is it meant to be used at both a lifting work bench and a ztr lift...aka easy transition from one to the other?

Thanks, looks like a nice product.

bel-nor,

If you got the "Mojack Pro" lift for $214, you did great. The current price for this jack is $427 at Home Depot.

Wife isn't "happy" but I'm glad I logged on this morning, don't think I would of swung for the full price purchase but $247 is great. Been watching the Amazon page since I ordered, slowly watching their stock run down.

I'm with you Maco I run walker so rercently I got a big ZTR. With the walker I can flip deck up but with a 1300 lb mid mount mower its deck isn't as maneuverable. I would bet the work bench to work on the small projects.

That is just another kadjut that is not needed to run a lawn business. A simple $40 floor jack and wood blocks can do everythign you need to do
on a mower and you can use a jack on your trailer, truck, etc. etc.

I spoke with Kathy Linnebur at MoJack a few weeks ago. I told her I had a Deere zero turn that weighs about 1350 and i wanted to know if the 750lb rating of the MoJack Pro would be ok. She told me that the EZ would also work. She said even though its rated at 300lbs it can actually lift 900lbs. She said that as soon as the mower is lifted the weight transfers to the rear and it would lift it fine. She did say the Pro would be easier but you can use a drill with either to make it easy

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples. The mojack is avaiable at the big box stores for about $200. The mojack pro (the one sited at the beginning of this thread) usually goes for close to $400. The mojack pro is meant to lift the heavy commercial machines.

True if you mow on the week-ends or with a 21" mower. When you have to change blades on several mowers daily it is well worth it.

I use to get by with the floor jack and a block of wood too when cleaning decks and changing blades.

But I am all for a device that might make my life a little easier the older I get. Smarter not harder. I also like be able to roll a push mower onto the workbench accessory and crank it up to work on it in a more comfortable position.

Don't worry my floor jack, it still gets used on other jobs.

As for a happy wife. The less time I spend in the shop, and the energy I save doing the work smarter, should translate into a happier wife.

Uhhh, OK. I understand that some wives might be happier if you spend more time in the shop.

Yep you could say that about a Blade Sharpener also. But people have them.
I wouldn't of gotten mine for the retail price either, but for the deal I got on Ebay, it was worth it. I do have a floor jack, jack stands, heck even a few block's of wood too. but This unit lifts my mower higher that a floor jack by more that an extra 14".

To each his own.:dancing:

Mow with 21's and trim with scissors too. tow the trailer with a horse. Use ratchets instead of impacts to change blades. While your at it call the power company and tell them to disconnect....no need for power anymore. Put an outhouse outside and just go to the bathroom in there. You really dont need electricity or indoor plumbing. There are tools to be more efficient and effective at what you do.:rolleyes:

Yes, eventually I will probably end up getting one, But I just bought my Scag last week, built my shed, and am looking at a trailer. So $ are adding up left and right. And then there is fertilizer, seed, herbicide, pesticide $ that are coming up also. Wife has been a trooper, so far, so I will pace myself for now.

I don't know, i believe for me, there is a mid point between unnecessary like this tool and being amish as you describe....as i am quite fond of indoor plumbing.

I've purchased so many items over theyeas that i thought would make my life easier, most of them just decorate the shed, or wind up for sale for pennies.
I once bought striping kits for the 21"s... lasted a day before I took them off. Bought that liner for the pick up truck, that you crank off the load instead of shoveling...anybody want it, you can have it for free!

it worked really well, however, speed is my goal when Im working to get more done, and it really slowed me down. I will look in my shed, if it there and someone needs it, you can have it for free. looks like a tiny sod roller, fill it with sand or water.

True, but once you use the MoJack you will be sold. It's a great design and works like a charm. The biggest benefit in comparing the MJ to the JungleJack or the DIY methods is the clearance you get. I coudn't get under my deck. For some this may work fine but I like having a couple feet to work with when I'm scraping or changing blades. They are worth the $$.

I feel the same way, I'm really glad that I picked up one from the special Amazon had.
