What to Consider When Buying a Tractor Seat
- Construction Quality
You’re probably looking at this article because the seat on your tractor has worn out. So you undoubtedly want to make sure that any tractor seat you buy will last the lifetime of your tractor, whether that be into the hundreds or even thousands of hours, just like your tractor tires.
How long a tractor seat will last is down to its construction quality. And while tractor seats can be made of a variety of materials, a steel frame construction is often preferable.
If you live in a region with a lot of rainfall, it’s likely that you will appreciate a tractor seat that not only has a waterproof covering, but also a sink drain hole. These two things can really make a big difference in keeping you and your tractor as dry as possible.
Most tractor seats are designed to fit many models of tractor, including John Deere, Kubota, Allis-Chalmers, Bobcat, Massey and many more.
So while it’s likely that any seat you purchase will fit your tractor, just keep in mind that this doesn’t necessarily always mean that it will fit your specific tractor.
- Size & Cushioning
Generally, the more padded the seat, the more comfortable it will be, especially when driving over uneven terrain. Additionally, pay attention to how wide a seat is and make sure that it will accommodate your backside.
Buying a tractor seat that fits your tractor is one thing, but buying one that allows for a wide range of adjustment for that tailored comfort is another. While not always necessary, it can be nice to have the option to adjust the seat angle and slide track.
