Steps For Deere 4850 MFWD Tractor
I came up with a couple of different steps for my Deere 4850 MFWD tractor. One is used for fueling the tractor, and the other for cleaning the cab windows. To fasten the step for the cab, I drill holes in the tractor and use 4 self-tapping screws. The step for the fuel tank uses existing holes in the tractor frame.
  I also came up with what I call “dirt skirts” that help keep dirt off my Deere 4850 MFWD tractor’s radiator screens, which are located on the sides of the tractor. As the front wheels churn, they bring up dirt and chaff and corn leaves that get sucked in against the radiator. The dirt skirts mount inside the fender to stop such trash from being sucked against the radiator grill. I simply cut up some rubber floor matting to follow the curve of the fender and then bolted the mat to the fender. It doesn’t stop the trash completely but it definitely helps.
