Back-Saving Steps For Older Deere Tractors
"As far as I know, no one else makes add-on steps for any of these tractors," says Norman Quay, of DeGraff. "There was an after-market company that manufactured them in the 1960's but they went out of business several years ago. All the steps we offer are made out of heavy steel with durable powder coat paint."
His yellow-colored steps are designed to go on back of all Deere 2-cyl. row crop models back to 1935, including the "A", "B", and G" models, as well as models 50, 60, and 70 dating back to 1960. The steps fit either the left or right side of the tractor. They are not compatible with tractors that have a 3-pt. hitch. All units bolt to the tractor's rear axle housing.
Also available are steps to fit all Deere Model H's. These steps bolt onto the rear side of the rear axle, on either the left or right side.
All steps are available with or without a toolbox under the step (the step is the lid). A step without a toolbox sells for $100 plus S&H; a step with a toolbox sells for $125 plus S&H.
Green-colored steps designed for Deere 4010, 4020, 3010, and 3020 tractors are also available. This step is built in two pieces that are hinged together. The front piece bolts in place of the tractor's original step. The 24-in. long, 8-in. wide back piece forms a separate step alongside the battery box under the operator's platform. It's hinged in the middle, allowing the outer half to be folded underneath the inner half when you need to move the tractor's rear wheels in.
The steps sell for $135 plus S&H.
Quay also makes battery boxes designed for Allis-Chalmers B, C, and G tractors and for International Harvester H, B, BN, and C models. Please call for prices on the battery boxes.
