As I see it there are really two issues with the Lo Boy accessibility. First is getting on and off and second is once you are in the seat how much "room" you have. With the variables of two different seats and two different length steering shafts and what ever may have been owner modified (including the actual size and shape of the owner
). No wonder it gets troublesome to compare and different opinions.
I have a '63 round nose Lo Boy with deluxe seat. My only annoyance, other than the getting on and off, is my left knee hits the steering post. I think I'm gonna put a piece of one of those pool noodles around it.
This discussion finally clicked for me what was up with the gold plated cub in this vine discussion.http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=79417
and specifically this picture from ebay of it (auction has ended) scroll way down the listing for pictures; I'll refrain from the restoration quality discussion here but there are a couple comfort/accessibility modifications to mention.
#1 A spring seat will work on a Lo Boy????
#2 Is having the seat two inches to the left worth the trouble of the bracket between the seat and seat post?????
#3 The fenders moved out, especially the right one, would give a bit more room although you'd still have the bracket.
