Repositioning Deluxe Seat

Postby Urbish » Tue Nov 12, 2019 6:21 pm

With snow plowing season upon us, it was bothering me that my knee constantly hit the steering support post on the LoBoy with deluxe seat. I removed the seat frame and drilled new mount holes 2" forward (so that the seat would end up 2" rearward). I'm very happy with the result and it is much more comfortable to operate now.

An easy fix that can make a world of a difference in comfort.

I'm 6'4" tall and have done that to every Cub I've owned. That stupid little acorn nut on the steering support really leaves some nasty bruises on your left knee!!!

Yes, especially if the tractor comes to a sudden stop while plowing and your body keeps going.

Some of the later seats I have seen have the third hole in them. I assume from the factory.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

One thing I did with that acorn nut and post was to put foam pipe insulation around it and zip tied. Softened things up a bit.

I looked at my Lo-boy, it has two sets of holes and is positioned in the rear setting. I'm not a real big person but It is already unhandy getting on and off, would be a pain in the rear, if the seat were in the forward position.

I never thought of doing that....100 sore knees later. Bush hogging is an especially rough ride and I almost put pipe insulation around it. Thanks for the tip
