“Helper” Hand Bar For Mowers
At age 86, Dick Lewis still likes to mow his yard with his zero-turn mower. He’s just not as sure-footed as he used to be getting on and off it. When he twisted his ankle getting off his MTD mower a few years ago, he decided there had to be a better way.
    So now he’s marketing his patent-pending Hand Hold Bar. He welds brackets onto bent 1-in. box steel tubing that is about 20-in. by 20-in. The bracket has holes for bolts that line up with holes on several models of mowers.
    “It’s like a handrail on the front. You put your hand on it, step on the deck and grab the steering handles,” Lewis says.
    He started with Deere mowers because the models had holes that were easy to adapt. He is also working with Cub Cadet and is open to inquiries about adapting it for other models.
    The painted bar retails for about $100, and Lewis plans to have a more expensive powder-coated version in the near future.
