In the spring I really enjoy Plowing the field on my 2n but to tell you the truth after about 4 or 5 hours of riding on an angle in a 7" furrow my back and my shoulder,from pushing against the fender, bother me so bad I've got to quit.
On my 23A oliver sulky plow under the seat is a lever so you can tilt the seat either way when in the furrow so that the seat is level. I realize the with a horse it's a little different but I would like to make the plowing even more enjoyable so I was thinking about making up a bracket to level the seat in the furrow.
Has anyone made one before? if so I like to see some photos.

I have a similar problem. I stop every so often to take a break, and walk around for a few minutes. This gets me more time on the seat without too much pain. A good soaking in a hot tub of water at the end of the day will help limber you up for another day of plowing.

Kirk You could try some extra thick foam under your seat cushion on the right side to make things more level when in the furrow
Keep your cheeks up---er chin up lol

If you don't mind making the seat a couple inches higher it should be a simple modification. I'm thinking a greatly simplified simpler version of this with fixed stops left and right.

Kirk,

Simplest quick fix thing I can think of is longer seat mount studs and a tapered hardwood wedge with two holes . . . before bolting the seat on.

That was my thinking also but was thinking cutting a wedge out of 6" channel iron

Looks like something from your milling machine, but not a bad idea.

Simple, Why didn't I think of that. If I don't make up a bracket that's what I'll do.Thanks for your response about the sherman Step up. That's about what I had figured 1st gear in step up. No clay and what's even better no rocks.

Kirk,

That sounds quick too.

How about this . . . .
Drill a hole thru one side of the seat mount plate, between the two stud holes but off to one side. Weld on a big nut and with a bolt
thru that you'd have easy tilt adjustment.

Tried that after plowing for about 5 hours I stopped and went to watch the pull. After that i was feeling pretty good so figured I would plow a little more. Could only take about 20 minutes in
the seat so I quit.

I had thought about that very same thing TOH
but wondered if it would put your butt too far
to one side so it's awkward to use the pedals.
Some kind if a swivel attached directly to the
bottom of the pan would be better.

It is an tilting milling table - the pivoting "table top" arrangement is what it was meant to illustrate. Something similar made from a few lengths of light angle iron and a few bolts would be almost trivial to make. Just put it between the top cover and the seat spring and voila.

You've got to have an extra seat and spring around, no?
Maybe heat the spring and twist it to your liking.
Two nuts to swap back to an original seat/spring for other jobs.
Another idea. Good or bad.

Kirk, you're a good fabricator. How about using 2" pipe with slots like the tilting base on a jig saw?



And there's also the worn out Rest-O-Ride seat option Smile
