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.
