Electrical or mechanical issue with that?
I believe you lose the ability to tip the seat forward, which is how the second seat switch operates with the standard seat. I suspect the wiring is still there, so I guess a manual switch could be added allowing unattended PTO. I haven't read about anyone doing that though.
Dealer got back to me on my seat. Said their mechanic said my seat was bottoming out but dealer does not recommend the air ride seat. He said they could put in another seat but doubt it might not solve it. Said the air ride was $800 plus shipping and 2 hours installation. I will try to find out the pound rating the seat is for it is not 240 pounds. I am not satisfied with it. Not pleased with dealers attitude at so far. Is there a brand you would recommend over the Kubota seat? Anyone have any idea how hard an air ride seat install is when replacing the standard seat?
Visited dealership on yesterday afternoon. He has his parts person working on seat options. As to stiffer springs they made no mention about that as an option to me. Really left aggravated with the seat discussion. I very much felt it was in their mind, live with it, it is a tractor. Yep it is a tractor with a terrible seat. FYI tbn is no the only forum this seat is being discussed on.
One positive thing to me. Learned when you buy the Kubota air ride it is the same seat, is on the base being switched out. If that is so is the swivel part of the seat or the base? Also there are air ride seat bases for $400 range on the internet from several companies. The seat itself suits me, it is the suspension is terrible. That would mean remove the seat, replace the base, reinstall the seat with new base and connect so I understand to power wire on right side of seat, think under back window. I would have no problem with that just Kubota ought to have a seat in their "GRANDE" cab that meet that reputation and price of these machines.
