Quick background, I have used this 580 Super K on the family farm for years. I like to think that I am proficient on this piece of equipment. Have also helped with maintenance on it. Ok, my father in law passes away a year ago. The swivel seat has always moved without any mechanism for years. Now it is locked in forward position. Have looked several times to locate problem. Thought I would find out how simple the fix was on here before I tear into this seat. Little things will always kick your tail.

I have worked on a swivel seat on a regular 580, it too was stuck in the forward position. The operator said usually if you banged it around a bunch it would eventually turn, but this time it didn't.

Turns out the linkage was worn enough that pulling the lever no longer moved the lock enough to release the seat. There are a bunch of moving parts in these seats, and over time from bouncing around the linkage gets really worn. They are a pain to work on in my opinion.
