Grammer Shows Innovative Turf Care Seats at GIE+Expo 201619.10.2016
Grammer Inc. will be showcasing a new seat combination system for use on riding lawn mowers and other turf care machines at GIE+Expo in Louisville, KY from October 19-21. The new, very comfortable S321 seat shell sports a modern design that was created mainly for the U.S., but also for the European and Asian market. It is padded with a two-part, 18.5 in. wide cushion which can be foamed with the proven Grammer backfoaming technology or be upholstered conventionally to create special designs. It is optionally available with armrests, fore/aft adjustment, and an operator presence switch (OPS) as well as a seat belt system for enhanced safety.
The seat shell can be installed either as a static seat with or without slide rails or be combined with the new, economical MSG 15 semi-suspension, which features a three-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 Inc. offers a complete portfolio of seats for turf care machines for both OEMs and aftermarket, ranging from comfort seats with mechanical suspensions all the way to electronically actively controlled high-tech seats with pneumatic suspensions.
