Added steps with Handrail will make climbing to the operator’s station less of a strain for the farmer’s body. The ladders leading to the operator’s station on many tractors are steep and tall with small surface areas on the steps themselves. In addition, the first step is high off the ground. Such large distances between steps strains the hips and knees, while small step area makes it difficult to stand securely on a step with two feet. A farmer with decreased mobility due to Parkinson’s Disease would be safer utilizing the added steps with a handrail rather then risking injury to themselves when climbing steep and tall tractor ladders.
Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from Added Steps & Hand Rails.
