answer 2
I use mine to lift push style 22" lawn mowers on my bench for service, an 8 HP 24" cut snowblower, pretty much anything like that. The key is to make up some lift chains or slings in pairs. I've got a pair of 12", 24" and 36" chains that I made up with bulk chain and hooks, a slip hook on one end and a grab hook on the other. Besides the chain and hook that it comes with I picked up a 3/8" chain swivel and fitted it with a 3/8" slip hook which gives me a lot of flexibility to rotate the part that I'm picking up. Balance and practice are the key. After you play with it for a while you will come up with methods that work for you. As far as picking up a lawn mower you could use a set of the nylon tie down straps, hooking one in each corner behind the wheels and pick it up that way. They aren't heavy, just be sure to never let the strap pull against something sharp without a pice of cardboard or some other form of protection to prevent it from shearing.

answer 3
A push mower, or a riding mower. Lifting up one end of a riding mower to change the blades is probably OK. Hanging a mower completely off the ground on a single hook, I'm not so sure about. Always put your safety above convenience.
