Grammer Tractor Driver Seats - A handy Checklist for Repairs and Servicing

Editorial team|4 minutes to read

Two considerations matter most for farmers when they’re in their vehicles: safety and comfort. As tractor driver seats have become more advanced, additional features have made working life easier for farmers spending long hours at the wheel. Of course, more features and controls mean more elements in the seat that can go wrong or require replacing. Yet the reality is that many farmers will prioritise their work over their safety and comfort; tractor seat maintenance is a job that gets put off. And that can have serious, negative outcomes for drivers. It’s a good idea for you to remind vehicle owners of the risks to their safety, and short- and long-term health, if they don’t have their seats checked and repaired regularly. Fortunately, leading vehicle seat manufacturer Grammer has teamed up with Kramp to create a handy seat checklist for you and your customers to use when repairing and servicing driver seats for tractors and other agricultural or commercial vehicles. 

Almost 70 years ago, Grammer began making tractor seat cushions. Since then, the company has designed and fabricated seats for every commercial vehicle you can think of.  You’ll find Grammer driver seats on agricultural, grasscare and construction vehicles of all kinds. The company’s creative designs and innovative technology emphasise the important of ergonomics, comfort and functionality, reducing the risk of neck or back injury for drivers at work. 

Your customer’s driver seat is no afterthought. 

Rating Plate – What Does it Say and Where can you Find it 

It all starts with identifying your seat, which is an easy thing, if you know where to look. You can find all this information on the rating plate that is located on the front middle of the lower part at the suspension and on the back of the seat frame.   

The rating plate shows the following information (example): 

(B) INVENTORY NO. =140 534 
(C) YEAR/CW/ASSEMBLY =0422 031 
- year of manufacture=04 (2004)
- built in week =22 (May)
- assembly=031 
(D) ORDER NO.=DE 42844300080
