    The user manual mentions that the mower should be blocked when it is to be put into storage. What is the proper way to block a mower? Are these the same points you would use to jack up the mower?

    Yes.
    I would just jack up the front and put a couple jack stands or pieces of wood under the frame, same goes for the rear.

    To get the weight off the tires.
    Its a good practice, less likely to flat spot tires etc...etc...
