Vibration hazards

A good seat reduces the vibrations to which persons sitting in a vehicle are exposed. The seat and its suspension determine the physical stresses, and specifically the amplitude, frequency, and duration of vibrations, that a driver is subjected to in a given vehicle on a particular road surface. Body posture and support also influence the vibration load. Vibrations are especially dangerous when sitting greatly bent over or when the torso is rotated (e.g. when driving backward) or leaning to one side (e.g. when driving a tractor on a slope).

The Maximo Evolution Active is the most comfortable tractor seat available, offering superb vibration comfort with its active seat suspension. It reduces vibration exposure by up to 75 percent.
