    I need some recommendations for a jack to use on a Snapper Zero Turn.

    This belongs to My Father-IN-Law who happens to be 78.

    He wants some sort of Jack to raise it so He can grease His spindles rather than remove the deck as His manual says to do.

    Any and all recommendations are greatly appreciated :D :D .

    You have to grease these from the underside? :realmad:

    Have you thought about running it up a set of car ramps? That's what I use to get under the deck of my Scag for removing the blades. The ramps work great for me. If you still want to pursue the jack idea check out this one from Jungle Jim it has a MSRP of $152:

    Rob,
    I had suggested the ramps to him and from looking at the jack I think the ramps are definitely the solution for Him.
    He has had both hips replaced and refuses to let anyone do his Mowing for Him, I guess it's One thing He loves to do.

    Thanks for the suggestion & the link.

    Tom :D
