Nice little addition . This cat walk was easy to build and will save the rear fenders from getting bent and guys hanging of the side trying to clear/clean or check hopper .
material used 1.5"x2.5" - 1/8" tube stock cut 3 lengths at 20".Slide them in position and mark holes for pins after you get it set up in the next step .
I'm using 1.5 " -1/8" angle for rails 2 x 56" . Mark just the inside one so you can flip it over to weld . Outside piece weld in place over hanging tube stock . Line up cat walk so it is just inside fender . Mark the holes for pins now .
Clamp and ready to tack weld .
Made a simple step with stock left over.
Disconnect battery before welding !
After tack weld ,remove and weld up joints . Step was around 8" riser .
Remove and flip over to measure for mesh top .
Went with 1/2" mesh to let the sand go through and better foot traction .
Test fit for the last time . Goes on easily.
Cleaning it up for
