    A Step Up

    Being old and fat it is a struggle to hop onto and off the 1025R repeatedly. And, after the cab was installed, it became even more difficult with added height.

    Here is a step designed and fabricated by a young local welder. It is a perfect size and the positioning is just right for the way I mount the tractor. I can now get a good steady foot up even wearing big clunky winter boots.

    That is one serious looking step. Looks like they did a good job on it.

    That looks great. I could use something like it. I'll show the picture to a friend who has that talent. I could never fit in that cab. From one fat old man to another that step is awesome!!!

    It had to be serious to support my 285 lbs. The young welder did an outstanding job that exceeded my expectations quite a bit.

    I really enjoy my tractor and doing work with the implements. Now, I can do more jobs that require jumping on and off frequently. It really is a major upgrade for someone in my condition.

    It is rock steady and will no doubt support whatever is placed on it. I am very confident upon mounting the tractor cab now.

    It was designed to be safe. My fabricator guy took a lot of measurements including where my foot would be when climbing in to the cab. It feels strong and steady and large enough to provide a non-slip firm platform. I no longer worry about straining my muscles (or my heart) when climbing in. It has been a big boost (pun intended) in being able to enjoy the tractor more. With the coming winter (we're waiting for snow to come tonight as I write this) I'll feel much safer with the step.

    fish bait--that is a nice heavy step, indeed. the kind that is needed to hoist me up and over

    now can ur MMM be used with the step, or are u going to take it off for the summertime?

    the onlt time my step hit the MMM was if i got on a steep hill, so i adapted to how i mowed after that. the step was well worth the trade off, IMO. for me. my step also is out farther away, so that ur foot, is easier to step onto the step. good job.
