Well I have been lookin for a while on how I could lift my lawnmower off of the ground so I do not need to keep crawling around on the ground. I have been using car ramps and a regular floor jack. I was looking to use a winch but decided on picking up an engine hoist. I got a killer deal from an auction that I saw on ebay that was local. thy are a liquidator so they have no reserve. got a huge lot for 70$ To make a long story they said in the auction that it was a lot of parts. Well I have put 3 full cranes together so far.. I just sold one to a buddy for 100$.. The engine hoist is your best bet...
I saw a mower ramp someone built for service their tractor on ebay not long ago. Two manual winches, on the pull the tractor onto the ramps, the other raised the ramps. Lifted a good 3 foot off the ground

Ido the same as Ford Boi. but i dont have a battery to take out. Im kinda in the process of makin a adapter to put my mower on a car rotisary (cant spell) that we have when we restored my ford car. right now you can spin a 1000 lb boddy around on it with your finger tips so a lawn mower im shure I could do it easy.
