Sears Seating develops seating for Caterpillar’s CAT M wheel loaders


Sears Seating, a leading manufacturer of off-road and over-the-road suspension seating, has developed a line of suspension seating for the CATM series of wheel loaders.

The next-generation seat lineup for Caterpillar’s CAT M series offers three trim levels: comfort, deluxe and premium – all of which have been designed to focus on operator safety and comfort.

The Sears Nexus seat, available in Caterpillar’s M series of wheel loaders, allows operators to tune the suspension and adjust the seat to suit their individual preferences. These comfort performance features reduce the effects of whole body vibration (WBV), as well as lessening fatigue. The result of this is operator alertness and comfortability when using the Nexus seat.

Sears Seating has been collaborating with Caterpillar for more than 40 years to provide optimal cushion comfort, contemporary styling and the latest technology, for its machines.

“The Nexus seat is our latest success story, bringing a new level of comfort and features to the Caterpillar M series wheel loader program and a testament to the strong collaboration and teamwork generated by our teams to deliver additional value to machine operators all over the world,” said Steve Eickenroht, Sears Seating’s Caterpillar business unit director.

Sears Seating is a privately-held global corporation based in Davenport, Iowa with operations in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Established in 1855, Sears’ reputation has earnt it a global position as a leading supplier of suspension and non-suspension seating for the agriculture, construction, forestry, industrial, turf care and over-the-road truck markets worldwide.
