Anyone have any simple modifications they have made to their seat on their 1025r? Mine bottoms out bad and actually kind of has a laid back position to it, so I find myself always readjusting in the seat to find a comfortable and functional spot. I'm so tired of it being uncomfortable I'm actually considering putting a old steel tractor seat on it off like a 1939 JD or a Ford 8N which I actually find to be more comfortable and takes the absorption much better.
Pictures if you got them of your mods.
Thanks all!

Just as a point of information, are you referring to a "Swivelling Back Hoe" seat or the single position seat. The BH seat has some issues with locking into the forward position once in a while. If it's not locked just right it rides like a stone and somehow defeats the suspension.

IF it's a regular seat try and score some PSrumors's springs. I do LIKE a harder ride and they helped my BH seat. (It still sticks once in a while (not due to replacement springs, but the complicated linkages in the suspension) when returning it to "forward" and I have not located the problem yet. It's been totally replaced and now the new one is doing it. To be continued...)

Does "psrumors" sell "softer" springs? At 150 pounds, I have never felt my seat springs move....:munch:

They are some stiffer to keep from bottoming out for heavier people.

FYI, I'd test the actual free movement of your seat by removing 1 spring and seeing if the seat really is free to move up and down. My old one used to lock in the unoccupied position, felt like a wagon seat...

Travis,

You are VERY welcome. :hi:

Just one of the many benefits of being a member of GTT ... being able to help a fellow tractor nut.

Installed psrumors springs tonight and went for a test ride. All I have to say is phenomenal. It's nice that they are stiff enough to keep you up right and not give you that feeling like you are reclining in the seat also. I would recommend these springs to anyone. Thanks psrumors!
