    Have a new Fastrak 20/52. What is the best and safest way to access the underside of the deck to change blades. My current jack and jackstands will not raise the machine up enough for access. Are ramps or a taller jack better?

    A average shop type floor jack (not the mini jacks) works fine.
    If you don't want to go that route look into a good set of truck ramps, and drive the mower up them and you should be ok there also.
    There are also aftermarket companies that sell jacks for lifting the front or rear of Z's.
    Here is a site for one of them > http://ballard-inc.com/superjack.htm

    Where on the ZTR is the best place to lift it with a floor jack? Some of the special "jacks" look like they lift under the deck, others maybe on the frame?

    I usually jack it from the front edge of the deck.
