I use a wheelchair full time and that is part of the contraption I built to get up and into the tractor seat. I call it a seat lift, also the reason I made the hand controls for the HST and clutch.
Any means possible to get up on our tractors.. đź‘Ť

Depending on your fab skills and determination, it's possible to add a reverse pedal.
This link was 4-5 years ago. I haven't changed mine, I just got used to the heal reverse.

So you have a winch hooked up to the pedal? I can't correlate you picture with your text.
If you haven’t seen the video of it in use, you should check it out. It is very impressive design, fabrication, and tenacity to solve a problem most wouldn’t have taken on.

Yep I thought it might be different since the BX pedal above deck is separate. I was a little younger and really can't remember on my 05 B7510 but from what I remember.. it was not a problem! Anyone confirm if it was separate pedals or above deck rocker?
The B7510 I had was a pedal that stuck thru the floor but it functioned just like the treadle pedal on my LX2610. It's just that the the entire pedal on the LX is above the floor. On the 7510 the pedals looked separate but they were connected together at the pivot point under the floor. I.E both pedals moved at the same time if you lifted the forward pedal it would go in reverse. Probably that's why it's only taken me 4-5 hours to no longer notice the difference between the 2.

One complaint on my LX however is the floor mat is only about 1/2 as thick as the B7510's was. I find with boots on it sometimes "bunches up" and needs to be pushed back under the back panel on the left side of the hump... Never had the one on the B7510 I sold last October move...

Thanks Daferris, my BX is the same way.. really one piece but is attached below deck and comes up as two seperate pedals. Guess it was because I was younger that I had no problem with it. The BX is a lot smaller, probably why it doesn't have the full cradle pedal on top.. wish it did!

I miss the separate side x side pedals on my old JD. One of these days I'm going to redesign both my Kubotas.
