Default Heated seat

A couple of weeks ago we were using my open walker on a really awkward job. What made it more uncomfortable was there was a layer of ice on the seat. Even after scraping the ice off it was still pretty unpleasent. Have this every winter on jobs I can't use the cabbed machine. Mark, who works for me, commented how nice the heated seats in HE's Komatsus are and that was what we needed. Well, the wonders of ebay, you can buy heated seat covers that plug into the cigarette lighter. Sat here now testing one on my office chair. Very toasty. Looks like a good addition for anyone without a cab or cab heating.

Tried twice to upload images and failed, so can't show details, but basically search 12v heated seat covers on ebay. Obviosly Chinese, hence testing in office before melting digger electrics, but seem fine and nicely finished.

Had a thought about posting flyer instead. Hopefully this will work.

Don't know yet. Brochure says "Has strong moisture resistance" whatever that means. We'll wait and see.

I donít know what it is with the Chinese. They have obviously put effort into making this. It is nicely finished and all appears to work as expected, but when it comes to translation they seem to make very little attempt to get it right.

Just googled Shujinhuoxue, it means "relax the muscle and stimulate the blood circulation. This is kind of traditional chinese medical treatment " so there you go. I'll be healthy and relaxed as well as warm.
