Support Post Bolted To Side Of Operator Platform On Riding Mower
  Jerry Maurer, Springfield, Ohio: “I had trouble getting on and off my zero-turn riding mower, because the operator isn’t supposed to step onto the mower deck.
  “To solve the problem, I bolted a support post to the side of the operator platform. I welded a “pocket” to the side made from 2-in. material. A removable 30-in. long, 1-in. square bar fits inside the tube. I then welded a length of 2-in. angle iron between the front wheel and deck, and bolted a fold-up military step onto it.
  “Now to get onto the mower I just grab the 30-in. tube and the mower’s steering handle at the same time, and step safely onto the operator platform.”
