    Default The downside of a tilting seat

    I am doing my spring burns. For me this is a bigger year as a buddy with a dozer cleared 5 acres of brush from under trees and piled them high. So these burns last days. You stoke during the day, let it die down at night. I do a 9PM check before settiling in to some TV.

    So on the tractor, out in the pitch black (save for my fantastic LED lights) and I am pushing the coals around. Suddenly I am jerked off my seat and am sitting sideways. No reason. My hydraulic seat up and fully extended itself. If it had not been for my seat belt I would have been out of the cab for sure, not so much that it was violent, but I was completley not prepared (flat land).

    Getting used to the tipping (and slow responding seat) takes a lot but driving home basically standing in the cab was all together a nightmare.

    Found it. It is the wiring to the seat. If you put the tractor in jus the right position, and the seat tries to level up, it pulls just a bit on the wiring harness causing a dsiconnect. Going to look into the reason for the tension but not tonight.
