    Default JD 5101E Limited Buddy Seat

    I just brought home a 2011 JD 5101E Limited tractor and I'm wondering if anyone has installed a buddy seat in this type / style of tractor. Thanks for any reply's!!

    I have just bought a 5093e and have the exact same question, I posted earlier on the buying/pricing forum asking a few questions. I do not see why not and a dealer near Dallas indicated that they have installed one. We take delivery tomorrow and it is being brought up to the dealer we are buying from. I know that it would not be in at the time of delivery, but I have two young children who like to go in the tractor and the seat would be great to have.

    I want to think that the issue on E series tractors is that the pto lever is in the way. Thought I had saw one installed as well, can't recall, but I thought they modified the lever.

    I think it is the MFWD lever, but it looks like it would be down and out of the way. I am sure someone has done it.

    I think you are right, I could not remember. Just recalled that there was an issue with a lever being in the way I might have been thinking of the 6xxxd series tractors.

    Did anyone resolve this? I'm getting a 5093e and I'd like the buddy seat also.

    They are nice tractors. I hope you can fit the seat satisfactorily.

    Not that I know of, but I think it would fit. Looking in an M it does not seem as though the seat would interfere with the mfwd lever.
