If those soda bottles don' t do the job you could try a partially inflated soccer or volley ball! Great idea, and cost effective. ;)
I picked up some tennis balls... They aren't large enough. As I was looking for a slightly larger, inflatable ball I walked past the bottles and figured "why not?" I am going to grab something like this for a more permanent solution. I believe this is a "gaga" ball.

Looking for a solution - my 1 month old L4060 HSTC has the standard (non air) seat, and when I sit in it, the seat bottoms out. I'm 6'5" 265lbs.

It's annoying from a variety of standpoints, but mostly from the fact that I'm not sitting up high enough to have adequate leg room. I can operate the machine this way, but it isn't comfortable for long stints.

My previous Kubota MX4800 and L2501 had no issues with their seats supporting me.

Anyone found a solution aside from springing for the $1000 air seat?

Thanks in advance
Replaced Seat on L4701 with similar as OEM but little higher back and arm rest Tractor Seats. Com wasn’t to expensive couple hundred bucks not huge improvement but some I didn’t want to spend 1k on air ride seat !!

Sure... that’s about as far back as I could get them at their existing pressure. Which I did not adjust from the store.

They definitely made a difference. Seat only drops about an inch when I sit but there is still plenty of give in it to act as suspension. I couldn’t bottom it out at all.

Well, approx 3 hours on the tractor since cramming those balls in there and so far so good. The additional height is nice and my hips dont cramp up anymore. I can turn the seat with enough knee room to make the feature pleasant.

Thats a good idea. I may try that if the balls fail.

Ive probably got 15 hours on them so far and they are holding up fine.
