    I know this is probably dumb to ask but here it goes. I just bought a husqvarna MZ5225 is it okay to step on the mower deck itself to get one and off this mower?

    Don't know on that mower, never seen one. I do it on my Dixie Chopper Classic and my Exmark Lazer.

    if it's a residential mower then no don't ever step on the deck but if it's a commercial mower then yes you have to step on the deck to get up onto it unless you have really long legs.

    Well, why don't you all? Somebody posted a photo recently of their new Hustler and BadBoy, and the BadBoy even had an extra step plate attached to the front of the mower. What is the big deal about getting on from the front between the caster wheels? Unless you've got an attachment mounted to the front it's the easiest access to the operators position.
