I have been wanting to take care of the fenders and foot rests for a time now. I have plans for going over the whole tractor but I don't have the time to do it right at this point so the touch up job will at least keep the steel from pitting.
The Diamond plate step I added 15 years ago, one of the best things I did to the tractor and for myself. The mirror has been knocked off a few times, I just stick back up and weld it back on. I had one on the roof but the trees took it off so many time I gave up and lowered it to where it is now.
I've had my tractor for so long it's not for fun anymore it's for getting work done fast so I can get back in my shop which is my first love and do other things I enjoy.
The trees I didn't want have been taken down, stumps removed, buildings put in, grading is where I want it so these days the 855 mostly is used for bug spraying the buildings and weeds, mowing, spring fork work, snow removal and moving things around the place. I built a nice 55 gallon sprayer but it was always in the way, same goes for the 12 "post hole digger I just had to have and only used once so I sold the post hole digger and gave the sprayer away to my neighbor farmer..
