    Raising back of seat on 1025r

    Here are a few photos of factory hex bolt and bolt installed top of my bolt had 8.8 on head if any help. Grandson used a 1/2" wrench to tighten the bolt

    In first photo you can see the front factory hex head bolt and the bolt I installed on back of seat with the 3 washers between seat bottom and seat frame. Depending you could use 4,5,2,1 or what ever amount you find comfortable. I may change mine and add one more washer on each side.
    You could use a larger nut and insert it between the frame instead of using washers.. ,or anything else that would add some height.

    So from my understanding is you removed the button head socket head cap screw and installed the longer hex head bolt with washers for spacers.
    Just wondering why you raised the back of the seat?

    Haven't really looked at my tractor about this yet, which I'll be doing on Monday. But I'm wondering, does this make you feel like you're sitting down hill? I'd like to bring the top of the back of the seat forward if it's possible in a more up-right position. Not sure this is possible without bending the L shaped bracket that hooks the seat and the back together. Anybody have any ideas?

    In my opinion the rear of the seat tilts back too much. This longer bolt allows you to sit a little more upright.

    I think it is pretty cool that your grandson was helping!! And better still that he was working and you were taking photos!!

    That is the reason for the washers to put the seat more upright. That is why I was saying you can put as long of bolt or as many washers , nuts or what ever thickness you may need or what to make the back of the seat more upright. I did not have to loosen the front hex nuts of seat in order to put the washers in place. Once you remove the two back hex bolts just use a large screwdriver or small pry bar to get the washers in place. Once the washers are in place on one side put the bolt in so you don't loose them.

    I agree I always felt like the top back of seat up tilled back way to far.

    Always felt like I had to have the seat so close , to see everything and then had no leg room. Now seat can be pushed back setting upright and plenty of leg room.

    For us people that don't have a backhoe, we can't do what you did as we don't have all that stuff you have on the bottom of your seat. Till I came back in and looked this thread up and looked at the pics I thought I was missing something. Well I guess I am missing something, a backhoe. :empathy3: So I guess it's back to the drawing board for me.

    That's why things looked different to me also, no BH.
    I'm fine with the seat myself , but when I looked at it you should be able to go to the bolts holding the seat mounting frame , but they will hard to get access to.

    Yah I really don't want to raise the back of the seat. I like it as is but I would like to have the back rest to be more in the up right position if you know what I mean. After looking at it I don't think it can be done with out some heat or cutting and welding and I'm no welder.
