Mower Lift

Be super careful. Apparently a guy died last week when the mower fell on his head while changing blades. His wife found him .

I'm sure they're nice, but why buy that just to lift your mower only when you can buy a full size floor jack & stands & can lift your truck as well if you ever have to..
