Jacks Lifts Riding Mowers
The Mo-Jack was invented by farmer Norman Krug (Vol. 29, No. 4) and, after some re-engineering, is now on the market. The patented unit works with a self-braking winch and strap and comes with jack stands for safety.
The self-braking winch lifts the mower on a T-shaped lift bar that supports the mower's front wheels.
To use, just roll the front wheels onto the lift's wheel pads and crank it up about 18 in. Place a pair of jack stands under the T-bar and insert a safety pin through a hole in the jack's tower, then apply the parking brake on the mower. The large base frame provides solid support.
By removing the wheel pads from the T-bar, the unit can also be used to change a flat tire, using the T-bar to support either the front or rear end of the mower frame. Just crank the self-braking winch until the wheels clear the floor, then apply the parking brake or place wheel chucks behind the mower's tires.
Three different sizes are available. They all sell for $250.
