That's why I wanted one - to save my back. Not just for the mower deck, though wrestling that think under the tractor is a pain in the back while maneuvering it under the tractor and laying on the ground reattaching the drive shaft.
My investment in the gantry is much less than my medical deductible, and sooner than later I was going to be muscling some heavy piece of something and hurt something.
Plus it's cool.
