    I just bought my new Stander 36" with the wide tires today. When I change my blades out on my 52 inch Super Surfer, and on previous scag riders, I would drive up my trailer ramp and hang half of the deck in the air. On my new Stander, I tried that and the bolt is too long and hits the street. The only way I could get my blade off is by letting the bolt hit the street an lifting up on the deck to allow the bolt to fall out. Has anyone had this problem? I would like to hear from you all if you have an easy way to remedy this problem.

    I bought a "Farmers Jack" at harbor Freight Tools (about $50). I also have a pair of car ramps that I place on the tailgate of the trailer. When I have ground clearence problems, I just jack the equipment up as necessary, place 2X6 blocks under the wheels. Works fine for me and there is no danger of getting crushed under the machine. I have a compressor and impact wrench for under mower work. Not a problem and easy-fast. Kurt

    try lifting it by the caster arms and kicking a catcher under the deck to hold it up.

    Happens all the time with my 48" Stander, sometimes I just have to adjust my angle on the ramp. Other times, I do as you did and it works out just fine.
