    Bigger boarding step for 2032r?

    I'm finding the stock step doesn't stick out far enough for my big feet when getting off the tractor. I usually walk off the tractor rather than go backwards so was wondering if I could put some bigger steps on that won't be so close to the floor?

    Thanks

    Better yet would be to train yourself to get off the tractor properly which is backwards - like coming down a ladder.

    When I worked for the state you would be written up if you dismounted anything coming down forward. The most reported injuries were from just that. And I've seen in many times - especially with dump trucks. Guys come out forward, the heel of their boot gets caught on the step, and face down on the ground they go.

    Always 3 points of contact - 1 hand and 2 feet or 2 hands and 1 foot. That's what those grab handles are for.

    That's how I was taught, it's ingrained as a habit now.

    You're not alone. I do this also.

    (But I maintain three points of contact while doing it!!)

    I had the same problem. Going up facing it or backing off of it there is just not enough clearance for my boot toes. This has worked well.

    What did you machine today?

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I'll try going backwards but might also look at extending the steps.
