Bought WW fluid and wondering how to safely jack up the rear end safely. I have a 1 1/2 ton floor jack. It would be nice to jack both wheels up at once but I am ok with doing each side separately. Any advice on jacking points and where to place axle stands would be appreciated.

Owner manual: Place jack under tractor frame or drawbar support. DO NOT place lifting device under transmission. Transmission could become damaged

Use blocking, after getting the lift from the jack.

That is what I did when adding the WW fluid and switching tires from side to side to widen their spacing.

Better yet, get a backhoe and use the stabilizers :laughing::laughing::laughing:

NOT if it is a JD2038R with the 270B backhoe...:rolleyes:

From the Operator's manual
IMPORTANT: Do not raise the tractor with the backhoe stabilizers. The stabilizers are not outriggers, and will not hold the tractor off the ground. Do not let backhoe bucket contact stabilizers.
