New Tractor Seat Swivel Saves Your Achin' Back
Saskatchewan grain farmer Arlen Manske, tired of continuously looking back over his shoulder to see equipment, designed and built a seat swivel for his Deere 2-WD tractor.
"Even though there's not a lot of room in Deere cabs, there's plenty of room to freely rotate the seat from side to side. Your knee may hit the console but you can still turn," he says.
Because of the interest in his home-built swivel, Manske decided to put it on the market. At present, it fits only Deere 30 Series standard deluxe cushion seats and the 40 and 50 Series hydraulic suspension seat.
The free-rolling swivel has five locking positions to the left or right and mounts directly beneath the seat pedestal in just a few minutes. Manske hopes to fit other tractor models, as well as combines and other self-propelled equipment, in the near future. He notes that the swivel can also be used under chairs, tables, lazy susans, and so on. It sells for $115 (U.S.).
