Not that you would trying to dump the gas out. Or the oil. Oh and another -- look out for it dumping the acid/water out of the battery.
Yes, I understood your meaning clearly, thanks.

On my Deere it would be very hard to spill anything since all are sealed but this could be a big concern for riding mowers of lesser quality. So your warning is very valid that owners of lesser quality mowers reading this should take heed of.

It has safety pins that pop into place once you get it up to a certain height.

I work part time at a well known farm supply store, so I've set up and sold many Mo-Jacks (and a hydraulic knock off brand). I've put tractors and zero-turns on these things and have never had any problem with oil or battery leakage. Gas could leak though if it's full, especially with a zero-turn, but I'm not sure since we don't put gas in them on the sales floor.

I would look through articles and forums on >>>

TractorByNet.com | Compact Tractors | John Deere, Kubota, New Holland

for these type detailed discussions.
I have a John Deere x304, I've raised it to its highest point, never had an issue with fuel.

However, I will never use the mojack to do those tasks. I bought it for taking care of greasing and blade changes and nothing else since I can't get on my knees anymore.
We got ours so we can clean our decks easier. Drive it on, raise it up, spray & gently scrape...all done ten min later.
