Add-On Seat For Tractor Cabs
"I saw a need for an extra seat in the cab, and I wanted that extra rider to be buckled in and secure," says Aaron Epley. "I built the first one, ran a few ads and did a few farm shows. I have been busy ever since." Epley's first concern is for safety. Each seat comes with a lap belt. All metal parts are powder coated. He uses all-welded frames, foam cushions and heavy upholstery fabric, which he says is as tough or tougher than factory installed. Cost is $235 per seat.
"My first seat has been in use for three years and shows no wear," he says.
The seats have their own foot stand. Installation is a matter of cutting away the floor covering where the seat is to be mounted. Drill four holes and bolt the seat in place. On Deere tractors, it is bolted to the floor of the cab. On Case-IH tractors, it is bolted to the fender.
"Installation shouldn't take more than an hour," says Epley.
