Can 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 IndustrialSeats.com 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 IndustrialSeats.com to see if specific parts like cushions are available. If a seat is purchased from IndustrialSeats.com, all the service parts are stocked and available for immediate shipment.
