Found this a while ago and thought it was a good idea.
Once all the fluids and batteries are out would be easier to work on your tractor.
Could probably be adapted to any lawn, garden tractor.

That's pretty cool. I have the hinge setup for an old single garage door that lifted over head. Might be able to make one of those things.

Great idea and the one in the video looked pretty good except the table seems to be so wide that I would end up with bruised and bloody shins.

The blue one in the center looks better and wheels could be easily added to make it mobile. Perhaps a single telescoping connecting bar near the floor to keep the ends aligned.

I have thought about building one but since I work on many different manufacturer and models of tractors I am concerned about how difficult it would be to mate the rotisserie to the tractors but it could probably be done with different slide off adapters. I have an old "cherry picker" that was trashed by attempting to lift way too much that may make a good starting point.

Mine is not a "rotisserie", but does get the tractor up to a workable level & is adjustable for tractor size;

And does hinge up to access the bottom;

I thought you turned a GT into a Rotisserie and had a fire going cooking a Bush Hog or something.:bigrofl::bigrofl::poke::poke:

The Bush Hog is safe, not going on a Rotisserie here, but what happens when I'm not around???
My Massey's are very quiet lately, something's up.

If I make my own Rotisserie there's going to be 2 Deere's going on it.

Doug,
Do you have a photo of your rotisserie without the tractor on it and can you rotate the tractor 360* with the tractor on it?

The threaded rod to lift the tractor is a great idea.

I don't have a Rotisserie, these are all pictures off the web of other peoples rotisserie's.
I would like to make my own as I think it's a good idea.
I started this thread to show what I found and to see if anybody has one here at GTTalk or to get ideas, opinions on other ways to make one.

Very cool idea. I have used a rotisserie for doing cars before,but never thought about one for GT's.

Excellant idea. I have an old heavy-duty engine stand somewhere. I'll dig it out and see
with a little welding whether I can make that work. Gettin too old to get under stuff any-more.--------Just thinking out loud,.. the stand is made for engines-200-300lbs?, got a
rotating sleeve/mount etc.--Huuum? with the frame balanced correctly, it might just work and I have my M12 ready to try it out---I'll let you know. ( If you don't hear back from me in a couple days, will somebody come a get it off me?) :madhop:
