    Aftermarket suspension seat for 1026R

    Is there a direct bolt-on aftermarket suspension seat or even one that will fit with a little modification for the 1026r? I already have the heavier seat springs and they helped with it bottoming out but our ground is hard clay and Id like something with some actual cushion. I don't have the backhoe so it doesn't need to swivel.

    I done a search and the last post I found was from 2013 so hopefully since a couple years have gone by someone has found a solution.

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe this would be of some help? I'm not familiar with the 1 series but maybe the seats bolt up the same?

    I'd suggest better springs but it seems you've done that

    I think it'd be a little more involved for him because, coming from the R, he'd first have to switch to the e's sub-base in order to keep the seatbelt.

    Thanks coaltrain for the link, it was very helpful. Ive been a metal fabricator for about 15 years so it wont be an issue with the mods for the seat frame.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    Glad to help. I wish I had those skills as I am still struggling to put that same seat on my 2520.
