Found this pic posted on a site offering mower how to info for new owners. WOW! Hope I never need any further advice from these bozos!
Can you spot the [at least] two huge errors in judgement/safety?

I'm thinking jacking a mower up on any part of the deck is a bad idea.

Plus the brake is probably not on and no chocks behind the rear tires.

Best way to lift a ZT for deck maintenance IMO

Only to lift but not work under. Hydraulics are known to leak down/fail. Especially these SCUTS.

One day his DNA will be eliminated due to a stupid move like this, further preventing his DNA from spreading through out the populace.

Hard to tell with a low res pic, but to me it looks like he's wearing prescription glasses.

Maybe a link to the OP's picture?

I wouldn't be underneath anything without jack stands. I'm also aware that there may be more than we see in the photo.

-No jackstands
- If the jack should fail, he will be hurting pretty bad.
-Jacking by the mower deck

Yeah this ones easy:

-First he's using a cheap impact. Buy some quality tools dude.

-Second he's replacing what look to be some nice Oregon Gator blades with some regular cheap blades. I mean why downgrade?

-Third are those designer jeans? It's like hello guy, companies like Dickie and Carhartt make work clothes. Why mess up some of your nice jeans?

I swear people and their boneheaded mistakes. :nunu:
