AMBERG, Germany – Grammer Inc. will showcase a new seat combination system for use on riding lawn mowers and other turf care machines at the 2015 GIE+Expo. The new S321 seat was created specifically for the U.S. market and is padded with a two-part, 18.5 in. wide cushion. It is also available with armrests, fore/aft adjustment, and an operator presence switch for enhanced safety.
The seat shell can be installed either without a suspension or combined with the economical MSG15 semi-suspension, which features a 3-step weight adjustment for even greater comfort. When used with the MSG15, the shell can also be folded forward to service the vehicle or protect the seat’s surfaces from the weather on unused, open-station vehicles.
Alternatively, the seat can be combined with the new MSG283 suspension.
This purely mechanical, scissors-type suspension is manufactured completely without welding, thus significantly reducing the number of components used. The suspension essentially consists of a horizontal cluster of tension springs. The system features a suspension stroke of 2.75 in., height adjustment by up to 2.36 in., and a weight adjustment range from 110-286 lbs. The combined weight and height adjustment mechanism lets the suspension be ideally set to satisfy the user’s personal comfort preferences.
Grammer offers a complete portfolio of seats for turf care machines for both OEMs and aftermarket, ranging from comfort seats with mechanical suspensions to active, electronically controlled, high-tech seats with pneumatic suspensions.
