Agree check Kioti options first but there are many aftermarket seats. Compare carefully for bolt pattern but seat belts set up, safety switch, slides, depth of seat. I found many of the seats had very shallow depth and it will get tiring in short order.

I suspect that after you get a seat with arm rests, you'll wish you didn't have them, or at least not use them.

The spring suspension of the seat means that your arms and legs are constantly flexing as the tractor (which of course has no suspension) goes over bumps.

If you have arm rests, it negates the ability of your arms to change position to take up the movement in your torso.


Best of luck.

 Kioti DK55 How to add seat armrests

Rather than reupholstering my worn seat, I fabricated a mounting arrangement so I could replace it with a deluxe one with adjustable and swing-up padded armrests. After a few years with this, I can tell you that I almost always have them swung up out of the way. What with all the hand controls, I find the rests are just in the way.

How do you like the Kioti? Did you post here a month ago about a problem the dealer couldn't fix?
