My super Z has the suspension seat which is real nice but I'm also thinking about getting the front suspension ?

Anyone tried the front suspension ? :usflag:

I just put a set of flex forks on my super z yesterday and they do help the ride a bunch. Don't know how well the mower will mow with them on only time will tell.

"Don't know how well the mower will mow" What do you mean by that ?

Surely it doesn't pop up / down like a car with bad shocks, does it ?

How about it sales Rep ??

Husqman,

How big of a job is it to change to the flex forks ?

I just picked my new Z-Master up yesterday. I got the Deluxe Suspension seat and man I am impressed with the way it supports me. I am a big guy too (250lbs). I just noticed the other guys talking about "Flex Forks", I think I will look into those too.

Where are you getting your seats from. I wouldn't mind paying a higher price for a good seat but I havn't seen one I like yet. The stock seat is about $375.

What I did was ordered a set of springs from the john deere mowers for $5 and put the springs in place of the rubber bumpers on my Scag Z-Cat. They bolted right on and made a 100% difference.

I bought my full suspension seat on Ebay for 299.00 and it works great. I think it's the same fella that sells Redmax equipment in TX. Name is Travis.

I just bought a nice seat from TSC. My local store carries a good selection.
Here's what Northern Tool has. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/NTESearch?storeId=6970&N=0&Ntk=All&Ntt=seats&Nty=1&D=seats&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Dx=mode+matchallpartial

My Scag Z-Cat had rubber bumpers on bottom of seat bracket. I bought springs from the JD dealer and took rubber bumpers off and replaced with springs.
