I tried a  [have] a 6 cyl. Thomas skid steer/ forks here. The problem was stacking stickered and spaced packs of lumber.   If a stick or spacer moves you can't get out to fix it.    I think JCB made a machine with a side door however.
Kubota CTL the doors open over your head inside the cab. Its still now easy if the forks are 4-5ft off the ground but I can wiggle out of the cab with the load in any position.

I can still wiggle out of the cab in a pinch, but not like I could when I was 27!! :D
Opportunity is missed by most because it shows up wearing bib overalls and looks like work.

I won't get out of my skid with the loader raised unless the safety arm is engaged.

 I know of a farmer that got killed doing that.   My brother who is higher up in a big construction company said at a safety meeting that 10 people get killed each year climbing out under the forks.  At his company they are fired if caught doing that.  Steve

Nothing has to break to get you, wouldn't be hard to catch a loose shirt or coat on the leaver while getting out.

On the old Thomas you have to hammer the one pin to lock the boom up. Thats what must be done.

 Until a hose breaks and the forks come down on top of you.  Steve
Around 20 years ago a neighbor of mine was putting mulch on landscape fabric with his bobcat around his house, leaned out of the cab with boom raised to check the fabric.  Bumped the joystick or something and the boom pinned him between it and the machine.  Didn't make it and left small kids behind.  Safety first.
