The answer is no. It's not worth it. Oh sure, it'll work, but when you lift it with a hoist, you STILL have to put something under the edge of the deck to keep it from falling. It is simply foolish to trust a mower free-hanging in the air to crawl under it. Do yourself a favor, and just save yourself a WHOLE BUNCH of time (overall) and headache, and just get yourself a Junglejack. You can even take it with you out in the field, as it takes up very little space on the trailer. It takes about 2 seconds, and your deck is up in the air, LOCKED in, and secure.

heres an even cheaper one. when you are changing one side of the deck...drive up on the trailer with one wheel and put the e brake on. change for the second side.

cheap, safe and gets the job done.
