Hello guys, been a while since my last post. Spent ALL DAY (12 hrs) on the tractor over Labor Day and 8 hrs the Sat before putting in food plots on our hunting lease. LOTS of driving on logging roads, very bumpy and lots of looking back (killer on my neck after fusion surgery). I'm considering the 4R seat for my tractor and was curious if another 4M (4044, 4052, 4066) owner had done the swap. JD has the full unit (mechanical suspension, seat, etc) for about $850 and judging by the bolt pattern it SHOULD bolt straight up, or only need a simple bracket made. Parts guy said the part numbers were the same for EU spec tractors, so I assume the mounting should be the same.
Anyone else done a 4m to 4R seat and suspension swap?
Also, look for my 4044M 5 year review to be posted soon.
