Fold-Up Tractor Steps
I ride my 1963 IH 706 in tractor rides and parades. At 80 years of age, I found it hard to get on because of the two small steps. So I made a set of fold-up steps that go all the way to the ground. The steps attach to a 2 by 6 box beam, with the upper end attached to the tractor’s rear housing. The lower one-third is hinged. A cylinder off an IH planter lifts it up after I get on.
