Fischer Lift Jacks? Any good?

Anyone own one of these or know anyone that does?

Looking at the jack, it looks like it could make life alot easier...but is it worth the $199.99?

This particular model looks to be the sturdiest and best quality one I've seen so far.

No problem. Here's another thread where we discussed the Fischer lift a bit more. Mowergene ended up buying one and is also pleased with his.

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.

In the past:
Craftsman, MTD, Snapper, 1961 Ford 801 Powermaster, 1992 LB 4.5HP 580546, 2003 LB 10552 6.5HP Duraforce, IH Cub Cadet 105, 2001 Cub Cadet 2146 14HP Linamar 38" deck, love of my life (Sold 10 Dec 2011), 2007 Cub Cadet 2550 22HP Kohler Vtwin 50"deck (Sold 22 Aug 2018)
In use:
1994 JD LX178 sweet little mower, only 15HP, twin cyl, 38" deck, liquid cooled!
1998 JD 445 22HP Shaft driven wheels, shaft driven 60" deck, diff-lock, hydraulic lift, power steering, fuel & temp gauges, fuel injected, and liquid cooled! This machine has it all!
2005 Nortrak NT 254 25HP Diesel 5' FEL, here's a case of cost-cutting, I only need a tractor 3 or 4 times a year

Going to try to stay Liquid Cooled the rest of my life! Hey, it gets HOT here!

Re: Fischer Lift Jacks? Any good?

Thank you Mowergene!! You answered the question for me about the base going under the deck. I was bit concerned about that. I have a JD 345, 445 & JD LX178 as well. Does your LX178 do ok with the lifts base? And thanks for the tip on the lift with low fuel. I wouldn't have thought of that!

I don't use the lift often for the LX178, so I don't recall how the deck did with the base. My compressor is in a separate building from where I keep the lift, so when I remove the blades to sharpen, it's easier to use the floor jack and impact gun to take them off. That deck also pulls off easily if the deck needs attention.

Anyone got a HF link for the coupon?

I looked and searched and did not find one for the Fischer jack.

Re: Fischer Lift Jacks? Any good?

I like the idea of these front lift jacks and they definitely work well. Just not under a 430 which is why I purchased one in the first place. The snout is too long and will not clear the post.
The other thing I don't like about mine is that it uses a flat strap on a winch and the crank handle sometimes catches the front of the tractor I am trying to lift. Eventually I want to change it to cable and put the crank handle 90 degrees from where it sits now.
I still like it a lot when I can use it tho'.

You lost me on this statement, the Fischer looks to be Hydralic lift not crank lift???????

I just noticed my wording after posting it.
Mine is a Princess Auto version and was posting only 'cause I didn't think about some of the shortcomings of any of these front lift jacks when I bought it. Just a FYI to anyone thing about a front lift jack.
