Any suggestions on a lift/jack system for lifting the front of my 950M to change blades, scrape the deck etc.? I had a Mojack before that was OK, but the safety locking pin never worked properly. When I called the company they totally blew me off. Took it back, and picked up another one that was not much better. I do have a floor jack I can use, with jack stands, but would like to get it higher.

I have a MoJack that works just great on lifting the 1200 pound Z710A with 54" deck, and the locking pin needs some lubrication for it to work properly.

I also have a big floor jack that I could use, but, I would have to use other blocking devices to use it properly, and besides I would have less room to get under the deck.

There are other brands of lifts you can purchase. Most all work on the same principle.

If you've got the room for it I'd consider a Harbor Freight gantry crane with a chainfall.

I could not get comfortable with any lift system sold to handle my 997 Z Trak, weighs in at nearly 2000 lbs.
Front end lift weight probably between 800 to 1000 lbs.

So I built my own, don't know your expertise or if there is a welding shop around your area, but this is what I did, just a thought:

I drive one of the front wheels onto a 4" high concrete pier that's in my workshop, then I can put my floor jack under the other front tire and jack it up. With the jack under the front tire, I get pretty good clearance. It worked, but I wouldn't want to lay under it without jack stands.
