The use of computer models in order to economize and expedite of design for development of vehicles has improved in recent decades. However the Importance of driver's seat comfort is caused considering seat as an important part of the design. Recently, unfit seats without ergonomic attention and lacking suitable models of agricultural tractor seats are caused increasing back pain side in most farmer drivers. Therefore, modeling Massey Ferguson tractor seat was done with finite element method in ABAQUS software. An optimal model was presented without spending time and cost and results were compared with experimental data. Output accelerations of seat parts, in 4 stimulation accelerates .5, 1, 1.5 and 2 meters per second squared in frequency range of 3 to 15 Hz was evaluated for experimental seat and modeled seat. By comparing of output acceleration in seat support foam, seat pan foam, seat support and seat pan without foam in experimental and modeled seat showed non-significant difference between two conditions. Therefore model validation showed Massey Ferguson tractor seat model is suitable for design and optimization tractor seat.
