mower lifts

I have a question about mower jacks. I have an 1100 lb ztr. since im only lifting the front of it , do you guys think a 300 lb jack would be fine, or go with the 500 lb one. Also the 500 lb should be enough? thanks

Run it up on the sides of your trailer ramp and don't even bother with a jack. I'm assuming your wanting to raise the mower to change your blades.

Floor jack under the front of the deck works for us.

One way is electric winch hanging from ceiling wrap cable around front of mower push button. Cost under 200. From norther fast reliable and has other uses like motor swap etc.
