    I HAVE A TORO Z 453. IT HAS A 48" DECK AND A 23 HP KAW ENGINE. WHAT DO YOU ALL RECOMMEND USING TO LIFT THE FRONT OF IT SO I CAN "SERVICE" IT. MY TORO DEALER AND HIS "REPAIRMEN" ARE REAL DICK-HEADS AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE THEM ANYMORE MONEY THAN I HAVE TO. I KNOW THERE IS THE Z-STAND BUT IT LOOKS LIKE CRAP AND THAT MEANS GIVING MORE MONEY TO MY DEALER.:drinkup: :drinkup: :drinkup:

    drive one side of your mower up on your ramp of your trailer! works great ffor scraping the deck and changing blades!

    This doesn't help with your mower, but find another dealer. Everybody makes fun of somebody sometimes, but the one thing I will not tolerate is a jackazz dealer, not when I am the one with the money, even if it's not much, you don't need that because one day you end up following some joke for advice and hurt yourself or whatever and they like to think that is very funny, they can take that attitude and shove it where me and my money don't go.

    Try using the auto ramps that you just drive up, these work well and are quick
