I don't know about that...being a sure safety unit. That is almost exact copy of a boat trailer jack that has been around for fifty years. Of course, the tongue of a boat trailer weighs a lot less than the front -2/3rds of a Z920M tractor. If it was me, I would build a larger foot pattern for the jack to help it be a more sturdier jack.
The jack is rated at 5,000 lbs which is more than sturdy enough. I also carry a jack stand to throw under the deck when I work under it. This is just more convenient to use rather than a floor jack, engine hoist or tractor and loader to pick the front end up.
I've been wanting to do this since we got our Z915B.
Our Toro Z-Master had a similar jack/stand on the front and I sure do miss it.
Is your jack removable without taking the mounting bolts out?
Do you have a link to the jack you bought?

BX42 Chipper, XUV 560 Gator, Z915B ZTrak
I would have zero concerns regarding the safety of this setup.
Nice job, and using a green jack finishes it off correctly.
Gotta ask, what is the 5 gal bucket for?
