yeh that was my thoughts Gra and hard wire them in, but those do look a damned good, easy fix, for a warm bum/back .... 'Drema has a great heater and keeps the feet nice, but I tend to have the door, and often the front window open ... Sundym glass isn't overly helpful when the light's not so good and I'm always in / out the seat, lacking assistance on the deck, doing anything, so a nice warm seat to clamber back into each time'd be a real bonus .... might just treat meself to one o' they

Along this line i was discussing the other day why dont some of the cabless machines have heated sticks

Quadbikes have heated grips and would make it a bit nicer

What also may be of interest most of the powertool manufacturers have heated hoodies that work with there batteries and i think its the Milwaukee one has a cig lighter plug aswell could be useful to someone

There are limits to this luxury you know. Only looking for a bit of comfort. Make it too nice and everyone will want to play. The misses and the daughter already think I do bugger all all day and the money grows on trees. Donít want to encourage them further.

Our Kobelco has a heated nut and bum warmer and our Toyota SUV has a nut and bum warmer which is a really nice. I've seen heated seat covers here too for cars, trucks, and tractors and such that don't have factory ones. The Hitachi has a good heater and thaws out my usually frozen feet quite well. During our long cold winters I usually wear insulated bib overalls and layer up if I'm doing the "in and out of the cab thing". And usually have a couple pairs of gloves for when one pair gets wet and mucky.

Really looking forward to receiving my Xmas present to self from eBay
.....and will report on this thread how it goes.
When it's cold, always pleased to get off me arse for a bit of 'safe digging' spade work around pipes, cables and other stuff hidden in the ground....
Sometime hear myself saying to the groundworker/banksman "Let me help you with that!!"

I think you need one to cover the whole van where you are.
If I still ran a landrover I would certainly have one, almost instant heat whilst you are waiting for the main heater to kick in.
