I have an out of production W9IIX ladder mast that I have used since 1981. 
I climbed the steps 20 years ago myself (225 pounds) and Louie Lincoln has 
climbed them last year.  They are welded onto the ladder mast. Louie has add 
on steps that look much like the steps W9IIX sells and he uses them quite 

These steps bolt onto the mast.  I wiuld stay away from steps that require 
holes in the actual mast!
