Tradeshow Recap: 2013 National Farm Machinery Show


Last week the Industrial Seats Team was out in Louisville for the National Farm Machinery Show.  The show featured eight interconnected exhibit halls totaling more than 1.2 million square feet of indoor exhibit space and containing more than 850 agricultural displays.



We met with dealer potentials, manufacturers, end-users and showcased our line of AG and Truck Seats.  Our 10×20 booth featured a range of seating options from camo pan seats to compact mechanical seats to deluxe air seats. The Elite 80 was a big hit on the stand featuring the heat and massage option.  Another popular seat by Sears Seating was the AG5045 in John Deere Brown.  The extra padding in the Grammer MSG93 definitely won over the crowds.Image

Tractor Seat FAQ

tractorseat_industrialseatsCan I put an air ride seat in my tractor?
It will depend on your tractor model, but usually it is possible for most tractors.   It is usually just a matter of hooking a 12V power source for the tractor seat.

What is a fore/aft isolator? 
This is a feature in a seat that gives shock absorption front to back (in addition to the up and down of the suspension).  It is common in many of the later model and larger tractors.

Is an air suspension seat worth the extra money over a mechanical suspension seat?  
Air suspension seats tend to give a better ride than mechanical suspension seats.   They typically have a higher weight capacity over mechanical and will  absorb more vibration.   They are also easier to adjust which is really good for multiple users.

Will this seat bolt directly to my factory mountings?   Will I have to fabricate?  
If you are not purchasing an OEM suspension seat from the dealer you can find help with an application specialist from to pinpoint an OEM quality direct bolt in replacement seat for your model tractor.   This way you won’t purchase something that might not fit or cause you a lot of time and money fabricating to make work.

Can I get replacement parts for my tractor seat?  
It is sometimes possible to find parts for the OEM seat depending on the brand that came factory in the machine.   Many times the original tractor seat is proprietary to the OEM and parts are sometimes not available elsewhere.   Check with the application specialist from to see if specific parts like cushions are available.   If a seat is purchased from, all the service parts are stocked and available for immediate shipment.
