    Step ... My way

    Didn't like having to step up so high to reach the operators platform on my 1025, and didn't like the idea of having to step on the mower deck either, so I modified a drop down truck step, and mounted it to the backhoe sub frame.
    It makes it much easier for this old man to get on and off the tractor now.

    I bought a couple of 'em off eBay ...

    I removed the hinge and bolt mount, and welded the step to a piece of steel flat stock.

    Thanks Keith … That looks much better.
    Now if I can just figure out how to do that, I'll be all set …
