The long awaited Bolt-On Backhoe Step is now available for the John Deere #260 Backhoe used to on the 1-Series machines. This will be made available to fit other models in the near future as well.

These steps will mount to the left or right of the machine, and reduce the step up onto the machine to almost in half from approximately 20.5" high down to only 12.5".

• 3" x 4" non-slip step area
• Mounts Left or Right
• Reduces first step height to 12.5" from 20.5"
• Installs in 30 minutes or less!
• Simple installation with pliers, 1-1/16", 1-1/8", and 9/16" wrenches or sockets (or small and large adjustable wrenches)

Yep.
These are an easy to install, fantastic addition to Ken's line of aftermarket tractor parts.
They work great and should be standard on every 260 that Deere sells in my opinion.:good2:

I'm with Tim , these things are awesome !!! Good tight fit and the finish is very good as well !!! Grade 8 zinc plated hardware is more than strong enough to handle heavy weight and be corrosion resistant . Although I should have read the instructions first :banghead: , as I put the bolts in backwards . This way was just easier for me . These steps make it much easier to get on the backhoe without twisting and contorting oneself to take the seat .

Installation Video

Is it possible for an installation video to be entertaining? We think so!

Here is the video Ken mentioned above.

I just can't figure out why Ken's modifications don't come as standard equipment on these tractors. They all seem to be an integral part of a tractor to me!

I think it has something to do with the smaller tractors and cost cutting.
Good thing for Kenny I say.

I was thinking that he should be selling them to John Deere and those other tractors. :good2:

Wouldn't work out. It would be hard for John Deere to sell something like this as an option when it should have been on there in the first place.

Steps ordered and on the way!

These steps are going to change the way I work. As I age and steadily decline in health I am actually becoming reluctant and also a bit fearful of taking on backhoe jobs. Ken's Steps will give me the steadiness and confidence to mount the BH like I used to back in the early 14th century when I was young and bulletproof.:good2:

Thanks Kenny. Well done.
