    chain hoist.. its very rare i will have to change a set on the job ,but if it do i use the ramp on the trailer or a curb.. beats paying $200 for a lift that i will get tired of hauling around and taking up space

    I used to use the trailer ramp method but since I added a gate assist the cables get in the way. I have a hoist in the shop. Works good...slow. I just ordered a Jungle Jack from MOWPART.COM this week that should be here Tuesday. $129.

    Duncan: Enough with the rubbing it in. You Walker and Navigator guys have it really good on this count.

    You guys use walkers up there in pa? I have never seen one before around here in MD. They look like they take up a ton of room on a trailer. With one of those we would only be able to fit just the one mower on our 6X12. As it is we currently can fit our 34Z and 1 of our other bigger mowers behind it. Or we can fit a 48 and the 60 behind it.

    I use a tractor jack under one of the extention bars above the front tires--around $30.00

    I use 2 car ramps and just drive the mower up on them. I would much rather get the jungle jack or mo jack though.
