    that option was first brought to the market by Hustler.
    I believe it was 1994 or 1995.
    the Hustler model 2500 had a optional hydraulic tool bar, to attach 3 point hitch attachments, edgers, aerators, etc.
    and with the tool bar came a jack.
    this was a very nice option to have, it made changing blades and tires a breeze, not to mention the ease of scraping your deck daily.
    so Toro was not the first with this option.
    a good option it is.

    I've been holding off on the purchase of either the Exmark or Toro until I could see the Toro with the deck lift. The dealer told me about this a couple of months ago but I haven't seen one yet.

    Steve it's NOT a jungle jack, it's built into the machine. Apparently you lower it down and drive the machine forward, right up onto the jack.

    Bushmaster, does it look like it would be easy to build one yourself and add it to a machine or is it complicated? I need to have easy access to the underside of the deck due to much wet mowing, in case I need to scrape. Will
