Simple way to clean your deck or change blades for your ZTR.

I have seen threads asking what is the best way to change blades and clean under the deck. I thought I would just post what I have done in the past. I have done this before too if something gets wound up undernieth.

Back tires stay on the gorund the whole time, no worry there. Brake is on so no chance of it rolling backwards. I guess you could always put a block under the wheel to keep from possible movement.

Best part about this, it is free. No need for another person, or ramps, use your ramp on your trailer.

I cannot do that with my enclosed trailer because the cables go down too far, so I just grab the Hi-Lift farm jack. It may not be as safe but I can get alot higher.
