The Kubota ZD 326 has the ability to raise it's self for blade change and other work under the deck. To raise the mower you raise a cover on the very front of the mower and remove two pins. You then turn the casters to a position where holes line up and insert the pins in the holes. Then you pull a handle out of a bracket and fold it around and turn a crank and within a few seconds the mower is raised by pivoting the entire front end so that the mower is standing on one wheel with the other sticking almost straight up. Does any other zero turns have some option similar to this to raise them for blade changes?

simple attach - lever, unpin it, put it against the ground, drive forvard - that's it; even simplier than simple trailor jek (and doesnt't weight the ton, like swivel axle)

ps. for blade change - simpler way than car jack - to lift front of the mower with board or pipe and put it on the car stands;
for quick deck clean-up on the field - one wheel on trailer gate or on improvised ramp
pps. - some strapping ROPS to the trailer (or tree : ))), pulling mower forward - and voala : )))

I would like to have one like that to work on my ZG 222 Kubota. We still have to raise it the old fashioned way.
