Re: Seat upgrade?
Welcome to the Kioti forum.
If you read through the threads you will see a common theme amongst new owners of CS tractors; and that is the seat sucks. I have to admit that I too shared this perception coming from the comfortable-couch of a Cub Cadet 3000 series, but in time I forgot about it.
Sitting on the seat is one thing, traversing uneven ground or roots is another. If you are coming off a garden or lawn tractor, any SCUT is going to give you a jarring ride. The reason is you are sitting higher on a machine with a higher center of gravity. You're gonna get moved from left-to-right faster and further. So seat suspension is probably more important then static seat comfort. Unfortunately the CS suspension (at least on my 4-5 year old CS) isn't the best. One member on the forum used a lightly inflated inner tube placed between his seat and frame. He claims that this simple solution solved the suspension issue. I've gotten use to it so I haven't tried it, but your question reminds me that there is a solution that I should probably try. I'll buy an inner tube on my next visit to Tractor Supply.
Question for you - what's a CS2010? I see that Kioti has a 2210 and 2510 listed on their website. I wasn't aware of a lower power unit.
