    How do you lift your mower in order to take the blades off to sharpen them?

    I've used ramps, jacks but the fastest I've found is to put a metal pipe under the front casters and deadlift while someone else puts something under the front wheel to keep it up.

    Floor jack or run the mower off the side of my trailer ramp.

    Floor jack or drive up the trailer gate. If it's a WB, I have the jack stands ready, pick up the mower, and slide the stands under.
