If you work in the trucking business, either driving eighteen wheelers or dump trucks or anything that keeps you sitting in the driver's seat for a long time, then you know that you can become sore. Oftentimes, there are two types of suspension in a vehicle: air ride and camelback. Unfortunately, you don't always get to choose the vehicle you will drive, and if a vehicle has uncomfortable suspension, you may think you are stuck with it. Fortunately for you, that is not the case. Suspension seats may be your best answer, and you need to look at the following three aspects before selecting one.
First, look at the quality of the product you will be receiving. You have a lot of options before you, but you should look for a few key items to make sure that the seat will perform its best for you. The metal frame of the seat should be coated with something to prevent rust and easy breakage. This can be a powder or liquid mixture. The seat should also have a good reputation. Look at the reviews on a certain product and see what others are saying. Even if the seat is a good price, you should really be asking if the seat is a quality product that will help you with your pain. Tubular frames are a good option for comfort, though not necessary.
One of the most important things you should look at when you are considering a seat is its comfort level. If at all possible, go to a store that sells these seats and try them out. Foam produces high comfort levels and is used in many suspension seats for trucks. Make sure that you select the seat that will be the best height for you. Many suspension seats are a little bigger and a little higher than the seats that come in a truck. You should still be able to reach the pedals and see to drive, even with a few inches difference.
Of course price must always be a factor. However, you should know that there are a few options that can make the price change. Some suspension seats come with their own hardware and sliding track. However, if the seat is going to fit your truck's dimensions (and it should as most trucks are compatible with any seat option), then you might not need to purchase the hardware with the seat. You can save some money there. However, remember that you are also saving money that you would be spending on doctor's bills or pain medication, so the price of the seat is worth it.
