    That's why I want one of those jacks or a frontmount mower. Wet grass will build up under just about anything. I wish I had a good way to get my Ferris up in the air to change/sharpen blades and clean it out.

    I honestly don't know how I ever got by without it. It is SO simple. even considering another one just to keep in the shop because I'm lazy and want to have one on the trailer and one in the shop. :laugh:

    or you could just do like the rest of us and turn the blades off and all the grass falls out anyway.

    Same for the gravely X-Factor deck. We have had rain rain and more rain this spring and I havent cleaned anything out from under the deck yet. Nothing builds up under there no matter what the conditions are like.

    every mower I've ever had has had buildup under it.

    I had to do that 4 times on one job the other day. I also run a ferris and I just run the mower up on the gate of the trailer with one wheel on and one off. Put the right set of wheels on the left side and vice versa. works for changing blades also. I don't suppose it's very professional but it works.
