We used this jungle jack on our Dixie Choppers but it does not work on our Ferris ztr's.

We use a Mojack now.

The jungle jack is for sale.

I bought some 4" Square steel, welded in some braces in and H across two rafters. I set up a hoist. I use it to left the mowers and also my spray rig in and out of my truck.

Cost me about $300 total including paying the welder

MoJack Pro, I've had it for a couple years now and makes changing blades much easier than the car ramps I used to use. I got it online at Home Depot, best price I found anywhere!

I have a 2 ton low profile floor jack from harbor freight that slides right under the deck and lifts up about 24". It gives me plenty of room to fit my cordless imact. It cost me about $130.

I simply just drive the mower up the trailer ramp, half on, then switch sides for the blade you can't reach.
I have in the past used my 4 wheeler, use a strap from the top of the rops to the quad, drive, put the e-brake on when its high enough. But obviously I don't condone reckless behavior like that.
