I will say that it isn't only a step. I always climbed up on the FH (I have an SC) and then stepped up on the axle, then left foot on the platform and swung the right leg over the seat. It puts an unusual twist on my hip (I have an artificial left hip) because the stock platform is so narrow and I had to do something. So I put in a platform extension and attached it to the left fender to give me more room. Then I robbed a step off my JD 3020 and attached it to the rear of the platform.

Probably you don't need to do that, but maybe you can modify the concept to work for you. Anyway, I will take a pic this weekend.

Here is my set up. I still have to step on the FH or whatever implement I have attached.

Nice extensions!
I am partial to platform tractors, not real crazy about straddle mount!

It is like the light bar is in the way from a comfortable mount / dismount from the side in front of the rear tires!

The Unique Design step looks pretty nice, and Ajhbike's solution looks great as well. If I've managed to attach the file correctly, here's my solution. If all goes well, this should be a living piece in a week or two, so if anyone see's a big problem, please let me know! I have no intention of producing more than one of these, but I'll gladly send a DXF (CAD file for a CNC machine) to anyone who wants one.

Looks pretty good and you can do that without a fast hitch. I would like to see the finished product mounted!
