 Kubota B3030 Seat uncomfortable

Got a new B3030 this spring and from a functionality POV it has been great. However, I cannot sit in the seat more than 1/2 an hour without the start of severe discomfort. I am at a lost as what to do. For 20K unit I would have thought more attention would have been paid to the operator's comfort. Other than this it has proven to be a great tractor. But, I could not recommend it to anyone, just because of the seat. Anyone have similar experiences??

 Kubota B3030 Seat uncomfortable

I got a replacement for my BX24 seat but did have to pay $50 for it. Kubota notified dealers but not owners of a deal on replacement seats. They have "more room" in the rump area so don't make you slide off like the ones that they had put on the BX series. Those seats were like a "lazy L" and you could not lean back or you just slid forward due to the angle of the bottom of the seat combined with the leaned back top of the seat.

 Kubota B3030 Seat uncomfortable

The Kubota Product Information Bulletin (PIB) was issued to dealers. In any case, the bottom line is that Kubota heard customer complaints and designed a much more comfortable seat as a replacement; it's now standard on new B/BX production. Replacement did require some action on your part (talk to your dealer) and the customer response has been huge so it has taken dealers (those that placed orders) quite some time to actually get the seats. I waited close to 3 months, but boy was it worth the wait! I posted a fairly detailed comparison between the old & new seat with pictures and my installation experience. Cost seems to be dependent on your dealer. Most people have found their dealer offering it as a free replacement or in the $25 range, but apparently some dealers care a little less about their customers and are charging more. Sorry that pictures aren't easier to post here, so if you message me I can send more info to you about my experience.

My 2630 has the same problem; uncomfortable seat. My dealer is jackassing me around. Kubota has been no help either. What "other site" are you referencing that has pictures, links, etc.?

 Kubota B3030 Seat uncomfortable

I know that most folks want their seat replaced for free, but there are some really good aftermarket seats available if the Kubota seat doesn't work out.

As for the B-series tractor seats, my dad's dealer had the replacement for him in about a week. I don't know if it's appropriate here on the forum, but "kudos" to the Kubota dealer in Dothan Alabama. Really customer-satisfaction oriented folks!

I'm not a premium member so I guess I'll just keep bitching about the seat.

Here is the front view pix. The juicer seat on the left I assume is the new seat?
