When to choose Air or Mechanical suspension seats?

Sometimes when choosing the correct seat for you machine it is a little more difficult than just replacing what is in there. Many times the machine will have a mechanical suspension and you will want to upgrade to air.  Cost could be a factor but upgrading to air is an easier than you think.

Air suspensions are a little more expensive but can handle more weight capacity and are much smoother. The air suspensions will come with compressors so all you have to do is get power to the seat.  For example this heavy equipment seat configuration is  the most popular air ride seat for loaders, dozers and haul trucks.
