Maybe drop the deck to the ground so you can step on it? You will have to turn the height adjustment knob all the way down to zero each time you get on or off but it should help keep the deck level since all the weight would be off the lift arms when you step on it.
Drop you deck so it resting On the floor Or Ground then step On deck then step up to the Tractor. If the deck is level On ground or Floor you shouldn't Have any problems Knocking it out of level. Once On tractor raise deck to Max height set Mowing height and Your off to the races again:bigthumb:
I know how you feel. Some days it’s an effort to get on mine. I’ve often thought Ken should design an assist step for our tractors. I’d be first in line for one. But I also realize he would not get the sales numbers for the x series like he does the 1 and 2 series, so understandably would not be worth his time.
I am 67 and a lot more things then my legs don't work nice anymore! I have to go up a lot further on my 4044M but I put a handle on the Loader Frame to grab and it has been a life saver for me. The Grab Handle has been the best thing I put on it in a long time. Helps me in and out with no fear of slipping!!
Used to use the one I put on the cab but it was not strong!
Yeah I'm a Bit Younger But stepping On the deck while it's On the ground should Help Because step mounted to the fender deck Might Interfere with Mowing Operations depending On How Far down the step goes :bigthumb:
So I just got the 60HD broom for my x758.
For all you guys that have been using them for a while, any tips or advice on using them?
storage and removal?
it’s only me on my own I don’t have a few guys with me.
Any advice would be really appreciated
I have an x758 with 54" deck, and I also have the mulch kit, and a bagger.
I have the stock blades, and another set of blades (that look pretty stock) that came with the bagger or mulch kit.
I was just wondering, for quality of cut, mulching capability, and bagging/lift capability...
So I purchased a new X758 with 54HC drive over deck and 54" snow blower at the end of the 2018 mowing season. My plan, at the time, was to keep it for the next 20 years, then buy another new one for my retirement years.
So much for making plans.
My job will now have me moving to a new place...
It seems there is a local faction around my area that prefers the older 316's etc. Made tougher, durable, STILL running. If you can find one with low hours and well maintained GO FOR IT! Craig's list stuff mostly.
on the other hand. . . I can't help but notice all the 1995 and 2000's models...
