Would using the trailer ramp one side at a time not have the potential for tweaking the frame of the mower?
I think I'll try my car ramps next time and then jack it up from there if I need more room. Thanks for the great ideas all.

No you're not going to tweak a frame. It's probably the safest method

That frame has about 1,000 hours on it. Oh it's a Gravely too. It has been on 3 wheels many times.

That Gravely frame won't be bending anytime soon, unless you like doing flips on it

Squat down, lift the front of the mower & kick a milk crate under one front wheel. Used to change blades on a 60" eXmark that way when I was younger.

Always use a metal milk crate.

I was fixing to say wth on first sentence lmao.

What model is your gravely and what deck size anyways OP?

I used a PT 2x10 on side of trailer for my gravely not my Deere though weighs a lot more, bought a mower jack for it refitted all the hardware with grade 8 steel, and hit it with some better welds.

I still never place myself directly under it when lifted almost 3/4 ton mower
