    Alrighty I was online a few days ago and came across some brand of commercial mowers that has a deck that hinges in the front, allowing it to fold and prop up the mower. This leaves the bottom of the deck facing forward and makes it easy for cleaning, greasing, blade swaps or whatever.
    I was thinking about it again this morning and have no idea where I saw it. I googled it for a while and still no luck.
    Anyone know what I'm talking about or seen these before? Anyone have one?

    grasshopper front deck models have a flipup deck that is push button operated (at least on some models). Also kubota has a built in jack on there mid mounts.

    I agree with DLCS. It sounds like he was looking at country clipper. It's a midmount style mower ("prop up the mower").

    Yep... that would be these slick things...


    By far my all-time favorite "creature-feature" machine.

    The above units are Chargers

    That is neat, I wonder why others don't do something like this.
