UnitedSeats LGV90/C1 fabric 360 degree rotation for backhoe machines 16 May, 2018

UnitedSeats present new Backhoe loader Air seat package

The Backhoe Loader has been a growing machine type on building sites across the world since the 1990s (see photos of backhoes below). This is due to its very versatile character. It can act like a loading shovel by using the front bucket and can scoop out holes using the rear digging bucket.

A lot of the vehicles built in the 1990s and 2000s went through heavy usage and the seats are often now the worse for wear. As a result of numerous recent enquiries UnitedSeats has introduced a new air seat version to cater for such applications. The AIR LGV90/C1 seat includes the following specification:

Standard features

  • Air suspension with integrated compressor
  • Fabric trim
  • Stepless Height adjustment 80 mm
  • Weight adjustment 50-135 kg
  • 12 volt compressor
  • Slide rail travel 200 mm
  • Suspension travel 110 mm
  • For-Aft islolator
  • Backrest angle adjustment
  • Lumbar support
  • Armrests
  • 12v heater element
  • Seatbelt
  • Operator presence switch
  • Turntable 0 – 180 – 360 degrees


  • Backrest extension

The seat rotates rearwards by 180 degrees and the slide rails can then be used to locate the driver closer to the rear bucket controls. With the horizontal isolator fitted cab nod can be reduced as well as vertical vibrations on rough terrain. Such is the flexibility of UnitedSeats that we can also produce mechanical rotational seats like the CS85/C1 and more deluxe seat models with seat cushion tilt and seat cushion length adjustment like the CS85/C2 PRO and the AIR LGV90/C2 PRO models.

The same 0-180 degree turntable can be used for industrial, forestry machines and cranes as per the C4 sample shown in Grey PVC.
