    Hello all, I own a fertilization company in metro Detroit, I’m looking to purchase a zero turn lift for my Toro 50”. Looked at the Oregon 350 lb. lift. Believe it’s the 42-008 model, any recommendations, thanks everyone.

    Use my 2 ton shop crane from harbor freight. Many uses, actually pulling the motor out of my stepson's 2007 impala with it now.

    Coindence that this thread came up now. My mower dealer just recommended a Mojack to me yesterday. I am no longer in the business of mowing. When I was, I ran Walkers with the lift up decks. Now I have a 42" Toro Timecutter for my home. I am a nut about sharpening blades and keeping the deck clean. So my question is: Are there different models of the Mojack? e.g. for different size mowers?

    Floor jack and jack stands. I would never trust a winch type lift without jack stands. I would rather push the mower into the air then pull it off the ground.

    man i dunno, are all you guys small?

    I used to just pick up the front of my mower and stuff an upside down 5 gal bucket under one side of the deck.
    Thats a 60" Z.

    Im not really understanding the complexity of a multi ton ceiling winch for this purpose when the majority of posters here have one or two machines?

    jack stands too... but the front of the mower is so much lighter than the back, with the way the machine is balanced you can just pick up the front.
