    I looking to invest in something to lift my mower to get acess to the underside. Was looking at the jungle jack. Can you lift directly on the mower deck ( Wildcat) with this product??? Does anybody else have any experince with this product??:waving:

    I have one and it is one of the best tools I would not be without. It is one of the first tool that goes on my truck. Great for changing blades and have used it to get myself unstuck. I highly reccommend it:cool2:

    Yes, you can lift directly at the deck. In my opinion, my Jungle Jack was one of the best support tools I've bought. You do need to use common sense when lifting with it, as you would with any lifting device.

    I've got a used one that I'd sell. It works fine except it's not strong enough to lift my Dixie Chopper 72" diesels. It will work fine on a 60" or smaller unit. I'd ship it to you for $90 and pay the shipping. I can send you some pics if you want.................Lynn Email me at gorrell@starband.net if you're interested

    Do you need to use jack stands as a "safety" precaution or is this stand alone?

    I do not use jackstands as it is pretty stable once you get the machine up.:cool2:

    I had one I bought used off of Ebay. I had to wait about 2 months for the idiot to get it shipped to me and then I only used it a dozen times. I loved it though! I bought it becuse I bought an Exmark Lazer Z and didn't want to have to use the floor jack to lift it... My Dixon mowers I could lift up and put on a stand! I sold the Exmark POS and let the jack go with it... Now I need one again!

    As for th jack being stable, it does have a extra bracket that is supposed to be flipped down and pinned when it's in the up position to prevent it from dropping. It's pretty stable without it though.

    I have one and the time it saves me compared to the floor jack is worth the money.........
