Tractor Rumble Seat

Postby BTW » Fri Apr 22, 2016 12:10 pm

One of my long time customers wanted me to fabricate a rumble seat for his Ford tractor. I warned him on the hazards of carrying a passenger. So with reservations,

I did what he wanted. After he fits the seat frame to his top link connection and with measurements I will add hand grips. One of the top link pins will be replaced with a extra long one I made up for foot pegs.

He has to do all the "fitting" because the tractor is a few hundred miles away. So everything is adjustable to make it easier.


I really don't know if his idea will work out, I guess after this weekend I will find out.

The picture shows what I came up with.....

Yepper.!!! 8-)
I will feel better after he fits the frame to the top link, and slide the seat to where it needs to be I will install something like grab bars or handle bars.
That seat has 3 positions on the forward and 3 on the aft. Flip the frame around and you have the same just a different elevation. So there are 12 positions. Now that's not counting 3 on the seat it's self.
The frame longitude and latitude is adjustable to fit the not so perfect top link connection...

Ok here's an update...
The guy called me Monday the 25th when he got back into town, and he said everything fit perfect. I asked if he had to adjust anything and he said no.
I also asked how was the rider ? Did everything seem safe? And he said there were no problems where to put the feet or hands...
