When mounted into frame in this position ladder platform will be parallel to combine frame, and locating bottom step 5 inches below frame
Square tube can be mounted anywhere along combine frame to avoid other mounted attachments

If this is the case, pin tube bracket can be slid up and down ladder rail as desired to achieve desired step height using flex joint to achieve desired angle

Pin tube bracket has a 2 inch offset along with ability to slide up and down ladder rails allows for many adjustments for ladder step height with varying frame heights
