Re: Mower removal and install
Today I removed my 60" MMM for the 10 hr. greasing. Tried a new variant on the 2X6 under the rear wheels. I have a motorcycle jack, rolled in under the rear hitch plate, fit perfectly, and with a couple of pumps, lifted the rear up about 2 inches. This worked better than the 2X6 for me, as I set my FEL to lift the front wheels, then jacked the rear. Did find that I over-did it a little, had to lower the jack to get the anti-scalping wheels to contact the garage floor!
Everything else when't as before, this was my first time to use the clicking hold on the drive shaft collar. With the PTO set to rear, I think I connected in about 5 seconds! Have to give this board a lot of credit, using the hints here made this service my easiest yet (I think it took longer to move the anti-scalp wheel ninety degrees than anything else).
