Reduce leg fatigue by resting your feet on a Tractor Seat Footrest 

By Braxten Breen Intern 

After a long day in the cab, many farmers suffer from leg fatigue or cramping from driving their farm equipment.   

The team has found a cool tool that could help.  Tractor Seats Footrest Kit could help to reduce operator fatigue with footrest pegs ergonomically positioned for natural comfort of foot placement in the cab.  

Tractor Seats Footrest Kit covers all types of John Deere machinery. The John Deere series that are compatible with Tractor Seats consist of the 7R, 8R, 8RT, 9R, 9RT, 9RX, Sprayers, and Spreaders.  

John Deere has existing holes along the steering column in the cab frame to accommodate the footrest. Tractor Seats has taken those holes into consideration with the installment of the pegs, resulting in no drilling needed when installing the pegs. 

The footrest pegs are built with heavy-duty steel with black powder coat finishing for long-lasting durability supporting every farmer operating a tractor.  

When farmers are spending most of the days in the cab on the field, this little attachment could go a long way to making those days on the field more comfortable than ever before.

TOUGHBUILT Reload Utility Knife + 2 Blade Mags_TB-H4S2-03

The ToughBuilt® Reload Utility Knife is an innovative quick-change tool expertly crafted from pro-grade materials with a groundbreaking, patented mechanism that allows it to receive spring-loaded blade magazines and autoload a fresh blade with just a flick after discarding the used blade with the push of a button. Just like a standard firearm operation, the mags drop away clear, and a new one can be charged into the chamber with a snap.

Replacement of worn blades is safe and straightforward with a one-button blade-release function that extracts used blades before charging in a fresh one by simply retracting the actuator and flicking it forward again. With a simple press of the mag release, a positive, spring-loaded magazine ejection drops mags clear from the tool or into an open hand. A new magazine can then be loaded inside, making it easy to switch from one kind of blade to another in a flash.

All Toughbuilt mags are integrated with a lower chamber indicator switch. Positions 1, 2, or 3 remind the Pro which kind of blades are loaded in a magazine without extracting the mag from a pouch or pocket. Designed for rigorous cross-platform use, the Reload Knife utilizes quality construction featuring smooth aluminum alloy and zinc alloy for corrosion resistance. It is wrapped in rugged, grippy, non-slip rubber soft-touch housing to protect the tool from shocks and drops while creating a more dexterous hand purchase on the instrument.

The integrated finger ridge guard helps keep Pros safe while cutting robust materials. It includes a five-pack of ToughBuilt universal straight-edge blades and a five-pack of ToughBuilt’s specialized hook blades, which use an intelligent, precision-milled proprietary edge design. The blades work interchangeably with both the Reload Knife and the ToughBuilt Scraper Utility Knife or any standard utility knife.
