Re: Fischer Lift Jacks? Any good?
YES!!! It lifts my 445 w/300 pound deck!! It has two stops on it to take the pressure off the cylinder for safety. The base of it does get under the deck, though, so it's not possible to use it to remove the deck. However, I can remove the blades for sharpening with it just having to remember to jack when the fuel level is LOW so that it doesn't drip out the breather vent in the cap!! The price is really great for what it does. The 750 lift is what you need to raise a 1200 lb tractor.
