    Ok, I know how to change them
    the question is how do i get the mower high enough or do u just raise it as high as i can

    i have a 36" snapper pro, residential use at this point

    On a unit that small you should be able to grab the front of the deck and lift it high enough to slide a jack stand under with your foot.

    Or set the jack stand in front of the unit and push down on the handle bar and roll it onto the stand.

    Or drive the front wheels up on some car ramps.

    I'm not familiar with the Snapper Pro, but with my machines (Bobcats 32, 36, 48) with Kaw engines, I just grab them from the left side and flip them over onto their side 90 degrees. Carb up.
