    My 1025r step mod

    Being a fat old man I had been using a plastic folding step to get on the 1025r. I had a string attached to it so I could throw it out of the way after I was in the saddle. This was fine in the garage but if I had to get off outside I was screwed!! So I watch all the other people doing steps on the 2 series and I thought why not. I ordered The Deere step and went to work, I found out the 1 series has no support where I needed it. I thought maybe just red rill holes in the step mount and get longer 10mm bolts in the floorboard. Tried this and only 1/2" of the step showed, not enough to get my shoe in. Then I got a heavy piece of aluminum channel and cut it to fit under the floorboard then drilled it to fit the bolt wholes. Then I drilled wholes for the step has far front has possible. It turned out pretty nice but it flexes just a bit with my 420lbs on it. It showed the full step I have used it several time and it help more geTtong off the tractor. It's a little low I'll see if the mower clears it if not just two bolts and it comes off. Then I will have the owner to use for a step.

    Very nice - looks factory!

    Adding my step (with the help of our forum members) has been the single most helpful mod for me.

    Looks good. Might be right in that sweet spot or just out of it for the mower to work with it.

    If you think clearance maybe a problem, you could replace the vertical legs of the steps with some multi-ply rubber belt---like that they utilize for extending the impeller blades in the snowthrower mod thread. I've seen this on heavy equipment steps.

    That looks really nice! As others has said, it looks as if it came from the assembly line with the step already installed.
