Mower Jack

If I were to purchase a MoJack mower lift, would MoJack EZ be sufficient to lift the front of the X-One?



rob

or, do you have any recommendations?

I am not familiar with the weight restrictions of the Mojack products, I would check their limits.
The heaviest X-One is 1260 lbs.

MoJack EZ - 350 pounds

MoJack XT - 500 pounds

MoJack Pro - 750 pounds

of course, it is only lifting the front end. after having this information what would be your recommendation? i read somewhere that the front of the mower generally weighs between 25-30 of the mower. not sure if that is true or not. thought i'd run it by you.

i believe jacks do not dead lift a whole unit, am i correct? so if a mower is 1000lbs, the jack doesnt lift all of it.

To me Mojack EZ was very light built. The Pro would be a better option and not a lot more money. 439.99 @ Amazon.com and ships for free

I called MoJack and they said for the X-One I would need the MoJack XT. The EZ isn't capable of lifting that much weight. They said the weight ratio for the X-One is about 35% of the weight of the mower, which weighs in at around 1260 pounds.

That give a front end weight of around 441 pounds. Too heave for the EZ.
