    I just finally broke down today and bought a jungle jack. This is going to be money well spent. No more struggling trying to lift mowers up with a floor jack and finding a way to hold them there its as good as my ez gate i bought 2 years ago

    If you love your Jungle Jack, you should check out Ballards Super Jack. Heavier Duty than JJ, also bigger wheels on bearings, double forks, and 23" of lift. Look it up at Ballards.com. Well worth the extra money.

    I think that web site is www.ballard-inc.com The other is a repair shop in Texas.

    Thanks, littlenic:)

    $ 250 for the Ballards Super Jack, $150-$160 for the Jungle Jack if my memory is correct.

    The web site is www.ballard-inc.com, sorry.
    It's not in the way of the blades, just better access under the deck, and more stable, i.e. safer. I own both.
    The Super Jack was $219.00, plus $20.00 shipping to La.

    Anyone buy the blade assist for the grinder that is on the Ballards site? Looks good idea instead of buy a high priced magna-matic to get the right angle when sharpening blades.

    What is the price of the blade assist?

    BOTURF what did you pay for the Jungle Jack?

    I like Ballard's Super Jack. Looks to be well-built and they actually tell you "Works on all ZTR's and Walk Behinds". My only concern is: What does it do to the floating deck? That can't be good for the mower. What is ya'll's opinion on that?
