Allis C and getting on and off problems

I like my C and the front lift and 3 point but I hate it at the same time. What a pain it is to get on and off of it. Can not go over the back because of the back rest. Can not go off the right side because the brake pedals like to make you fall on your face. Left side is not as bad but then you have the 3 or so foot step to go down. Any body ever built a step that could be used for getting and off?? I was thinking about a threaded rod bent in a U shape and bolted on but that is pretty much a one way step because I go off looking forward.
So any ideas and pictures??

Shoot for that price I can probably make 25 of them since I have tons of steel laying around so all I need is the welding rod and the power for the machine to do the work LOL

I was thinking about the step too. It is difficult at times to get on and off particularly after a long day. 30 years on concrete floors has worn on my knees.

Yep know how it is. I plan to make a step in the near future and when I get it done I will post pictures. I have a few ideas right now but not sure which will pan out

I have one on my C just a Rebar bent into a u Shape and welded to a Plate. Bolted to the Square cross tube. When we made one for my dads tractor we turned it out 45 degrees. makes it easy to get on and off

Something like this???

third party image

I have them on two tractors. Rather than bolt them fast I just dropped two bolts in a pins and when I want to use another of this size tractor I just pull the pins and move it to tractor I will be using.

With my back and arm messed up I swing my legs over one side or the other and slide off over a tire. When hauling used horse bedding Dixie makes me leave the bibs by the back door. Something about setting on the living chairs. I aint figured it out yet but to keep peace I just follow instructions.

Yep I understand the back and arm problems. I have the L-5-S-1 disk removed from my back and I'm in pain 24/7 from it and have had surgery on my right knee and right arm so both of them do not work 100%. That is why I need some sort of step and I like yours but I will have to see if I can make it a tad bigger so as to make it easy to hit when getting off.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine. We have two types of industry up here, one being "Forestry" (Wood Products) and the other "Farming" (Potatoes). There is no shortage of farm tractors and equipment around here! I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
