I just take the decks off and flip them over. Simple, easy, and free

Drive the front wheels into the bucket on my JD 855 compact tractor and lift. I have also used my 10' tilt deck trailer, just get the caster wheels on it and push the front of the trailer down.

Drive one wheel up on a car ramp, slide 3 ton jack under front lip of deck and a couple pumps later and it is all the way up. Quick and easy.

Guys be safe changing blades. I almost lost my hand due to using the wrong piece of equipment to jack up my mower. I was lifting it up and went to stick jack stand under it and bam it slipped off and smashed my hand between the bottom of the deck and jack stand. I almost lost my hand and was very very lucky! I would recommend a mo jack or something safe like that. I have a Kubota so I have the built in jack now. Safety first!!
