    Been using walk behind. Adding a Hustler Super Z this spring. What do you guys find works the best for you to get the mower up to change the blades?

    I have a ramp that drives up to my storage shed. I put car ramps on the ramp and drive my SuperZ right up. Put a tarp down on the side if its wet. An impact wrench is the key.

    I use a floor jack, works good for either type of mower, good incase you need to jack the truck or trailer up also

    Take a look at these http://www.junglejimsap.com/jack.html

    I bought one (used) to use with my exmark when I had it. Man it sure was a slick working deal. Only thing I didn't like was that it was just another thing in my garage and I don't have any floor space to spare!

    A good hydraulic floor jack will do the same thing and lift just as high, some are hard to get under the deck though. Yes I said under the deck edge... That's where the jungle jack (and others like it) hook and lift. They can lift in just a second or 2 where the hydraulic jack has to be pumped and pumped.

    I still prefer the floor jack, it's multi purpose... I sold my jungle jack with the exmark when I sold it.

    jungle jim works great but a super z 60" you have to be a big guy or else it takes 2 guys to lift that tank.
    i cant lift it by myself.

    I have a good rolling floor jack so hopefully that will slide under it. I would like an impact wrench but that would mean buying an air compressor.....
