what are these mfg thinking when they put a black seat on mower ? do they think it 70 degrees every day come out in real world and sit down on one of these hot seat .when you get off of it for 2 minutes to move something they are very hot use tan ,light Gray ,or white i would rather have a dirty seat then a hot a$$ . sometimes you think you have 2nd degree burn .

Yeah, Gravely was guilty also until just a short time ago.

I've told guys at Expo they ought to change the seat color. Gravely still has ads that have the black seat. Any time I see a mower with a black seat it's a major turnoff to me with that brand. The rest of the mower may be fine but it makes me think the manufacturers are out of touch.

I never understood that, I agree I'd also rather have a dirty white seat, mine's black as well.
This problem has been like that for a good 5-10 years, probably longer.
It's not just them, go to Northern or anyplace sells replacements seats: 90% of them black!

One thing I did find that helps, on my warrior I can tilt the seat up (like when doing repairs to the engine etc) and it stays in place... Flipping the seat up helps keep it cooler, looks kinda odd but I don't care. A white towel would work, but it wouldn't stay in place traveling...

Those dummies at Everride took the yellow seats off the Great Danes and put black on them too.
What a brain fart... and it looks sucky too.
