Are Cheap Seats really worth it in the long run??

On a recent trip to a Mining Expo in China, I saw first hand the differences in Quality  and Price

Yes the seats they were displaying were cheaper, and for the average person they may save a few dollars, but at what cost savings are you getting  over the life of the vehicle and what about  your comfort?

Here are a few pointers that you should be aware of when looking at a over seat package. Is the seat compliant with the State and Federal laws governing ADR Rules, Vibration standards set down by International Bodies. Some of these   Standards  will also cover how the seat is made IE welding of the frames, suspension characteristics, operator weight ranges. Then other points are spare parts, service back up  and suspension adjustments handle road conditions.

The other issues that need to be looked at are has the plastics and foams been tested to withstand prolonged UV rays, does the company making it have a safety policy, does the companies manufacturing processes impact on the environment? 

All these factors need to be weighed up when purchsing a cheap seat and will it really be that cheap in the long run. Even if you are not buying the seats from another country these questions should be asked.

As the saying goes “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”
