Product Details

When it comes to new seat options at Abilene Machine, we have several viable options in the Grammer family of award winning replacement seats →  742, 741 and 731.  What are the differences between the three seat tops you ask?  We’ll carefully go through the specifications of the 731 seat assembly from Grammer, below.

The 731 Black/Gray Matrix is an excellent option as a replacement seat to accompany the air suspension or mechanical suspension in your Case IH® tractor!  The 731 is a budget friendly option for a replacement seat.  We offer this seat top because we understand the high level of comfort that farmers and ranchers demand at an affordable price.

A 17.50” backrest and a 20.50” wide seat cushion separate this replacement seat from its close relatives, the 742 and the 741.  The seat provides maximum comfort with adjustable lumbar support and a backrest that reclines from -10° to +24°.  Folding armrests make entering and exiting the seat a breeze.

Abilene Machine has made it incredibly easy to install with our ‘Plug & Play’ system.  Your new tractor seat can be easily installed on a Grammer Suspension or your factory suspension with our installation kit.  Our kit allows you to plug the Operator Presence Switch directly.

As far as suspension goes, there are 7 options to choose from.  Which system you choose should be based on what will fit in your (John Deere®, Case IH®, etc.) machine and what feature(s) you desire.  We will carefully go through the specifications and features of the MSG95, below.

Measuring the seat-well of your machine (the distance between the fenders) is a good start to determining what suspension is right for you and your tractor seat.  The MSG95 has a frame width of 11.75” x 16.125” and a suspension travel height of 7”.  With those measurements in mind, the next thing to consider is if you’d like a mechanical or pneumatic suspension.  The MSG95 is a great option if a reliable air suspension is what you are seeking.  Original equipment manufacturers commonly use the MSG95 as their factory option for their equipment in the Agriculture as well as the Industrial sectors.

There are two ways to adjust the ride, the side-mounted Paddle Switch and the Fore/Aft Isolator. To increase the height, simply lift the paddle-switch upward to activate the compressor, adding air and distance between you and the cab floor.  The Fore/Aft Isolation lever is located on the left hand side of the suspension.  Flip the lever forward to unlock the front to back movement of your suspension.  In the forward/unlocked position, your suspension will absorb a tremendous amount of the vibration and jarring that comes with operating machinery.
