    If you already have the floor jack, why not use it? Save money. Use the concrete block or a jack stand for extra support and safety.

    If you already have a floor jack and jack stands...save your money. For changing blades nothing is faster than the trailer ramp/gate.

    I use a hi-lift jack and jack stands, you can lift it as high as you want as long as you have a jack stand to secure it.

    You can use the jungle jack in the field, very easy to carrie.

    Jungle Jack is extremely easy and fast to use. I have done many other things and this one seems one of the fastest. The other fast way is to mount a hand crank on the wall with a cable through some pulleys from the ceiling or cross memebers. Hook the cable around the front caster back onto itself and hoist away. EIther way you choose i would also mount a chain from some other point to hook to the mower as a safety chain so it cant drop on you. This would definately be a worry for you if you let employees change the blades. JMO
