LOL
And yes you can laugh at this question. Is there a trick to getting off and on these? I am 6'6" tall and 285 lbs. I had the hardest time trying to get out of the seat. It had me laughing so hard my ribs were hurting. Probably would have made a great video.

Pretty bad when a guy owns a couple of these and then ask a question like this.

Thanks guys. I have tried a few of these ideas. And yes my foot size is part of the problem along with every thing else including my age.

Thanks again

The C, that Dad had back in the 1940's and I started to work in the field with never had the seat back. Dad bought it used at an auction. I am not sure if it had one when he bought it. I don't remember it laying around any where. He mostly got on from the back. He would step on the drawbar and swing the other leg over the seat. Being 6' 2" myself and crippled, while getting on from the back sliding over the tire I catch my bibs straps on the back sometimes. I keep thinking I need to remove the back to make it easier.

My C, which I haven't used in a couple of years, and my WD45, just went down the road. Package deal! I got a nice 175. So I guess I still own an antique!

If you could find a D10 or D12 it'd be great for you.

6'-3", 270#, size 14 shoe, 73 yrs. old, and not co-ordinated. I have a loop type step mounted under the clutch pedal which helps climbing up, then pivot 180 and down to the seat. To get off slide clear over to the clutch side, put one hand on the steering column, the other on the rear tire, and slide forward down the fender. It was lots easier when I was 16. I probably looked better doing it then too.

Getting on and off a G with cultivators was a pain for me 30 years ago.

It's getting that way for me. Harder to step over the main tube. Luckily I have the Mott to step on.

Well it took me a couple of days to get the nerve to bring up this subject. It's hard to believe that I own two model Bs and until this past weekend I had never climb on either one. I am determined to restore one and had planed on mowing with the other. If I don't figure this out one may become a grandsons birthday present

I am 66 years old, 6'-4" and 220 lbs. and have a B which I haven't used in years because of this reason. Not just AC but many tractors from that era were not very ergometrically friendly.

This is getting to be more of a problem for me too. I installed a step as someone else said but you still have to do a 180 to get on and off. I find the padded seat with the back is very low so it is a long way to get up. I have a pan seat mounted on 2x6s which makes it a more comfortable height, just not as pretty. I am considering putting 2x2s under the padded seat to raise it up.

Guys I really appreciate your feed back. And not making jokes. When I get home today I am going to really look into this. Both of these are easy restorable and I like the way they look. But if I cannot get on off them they will have to go.

Thanks

Nothing wrong asking question like this. I am 6'4" tall and 225 LBS. and have trouble getting on and off a WD45. I have moved seat back 6"and have the flip seat and that helps. I wear a size 12 boot and have trouble getting my foot on brakes if my foot is resting on foot rest under brake pedals.

I now get off and on from the back backwards. I back up and put my heel on the drawbar and slide up on the rear tire, slide over on the seat and spin around.

mine has a step half way between the ground and the shift lever... but you have to be able to get up off the seat and standing first. Is the seat back far enough to get one leg under the steering wheel so both legs are on the same side ?

That's why I quit using my B and bought a CA much easier to get on and off.

Lock the lift arms straight down when you're not using them makes it a lot easier.
