Winch-Operated Mower Lift
About 10 years ago, Harold Curie of Gaithersburg, Md., came up with a winch and pulley system to lift his Deere riding mower, allowing him to more easily service the machine. The 90-year-old is still using it.
  The system consists of a wall-mounted, 12-volt ATV winch that’s attached to a pair of pulleys – one mounted on the wall about 5 ft. above the winch and the other 12 ft. away on a rafter over the center of the opening to his shed. Cable from the second pulley extends down to a wide neck yoke, which has straps at each end that attach to the mower’s front end.
  Whenever the system isn’t in use, Curie attaches a weight on the end of the cable to keep it aligned and to prevent twisting.
