Simple Tractor Lift Helps Disabled Farmer
"My knees won't climb the steps of my Deere 7210 tractor anymore, so I made a lift for it," says Orville Flager, Ottawa, Kansas.
  "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."
