Well my last post of a few weeks ago finally closed the saga of the defective air suspension seat option on my still-under-warranty X739
After a litany of phone calls, a service manager that left midstream, an OEM supplier that that could care LESS about customer satisfaction and the hours (yes hours) of calls with JD, I finally got the never-right-in-the-first-place-seat replaced.
Now, Chapter two: a comment on the air ride suspension seat armrests.
There are three height adjustment positions for the armrests, with a bracket (stamped key) for each position, and a cap screw to secure the entire rest within each bracket position. The problem is that even on the HIGHEST position. The arm rests are clearly too low (about 3 inches) and at least for me, are useless.
I read a string from back in January 2016 about a fellow debating as to which seat and accompanying armrests he should buy....my question is- could the wrong set of armrests be fitted on this air suspension seat?
Also a note: the recline adjustment level on the rear left side of the seat has a sharp pointed compound end that regularly jabs my rear end. Tip- put a black rubber furniture leg cap on it to defend your rear end from attack on slopes and rocking motions.
Once I solve the issues of this seat and feel comfortable (no pun) I will try to give a perspective on the seat vs. money spent for it, but I will hold my tongue for now regarding a recommendation.
BTW, the tractor is fantastic.
