Simple Tractor Lift Helps Disabled Farmer
"Commercial lifts cost hundreds of dollars but I spent just $100 plus labor. I bought a small winch from Harbor Freight (www.harborfreight.com) and wired in a 30-amp fuse. It runs off the tractor battery.
"I used a steel plate for the back and 2 lengths of 2 -in. angle iron to make the slide for the step, which is held by a bracket made from 2-in. angle iron.
"I can remove the powered step by removing 4 bolts and then folding the original steps back down."
