Looking at Scag Tiger Cats and Wildcats, and question is how much better of a ride does the soft ride or suspension seats offer ? How many here run the suspension seats ?

Local dealer has some left overs with the soft ride, and comparing to the new 2010 Tiger Cat with the SS option.

Demo is tough since we are pretty much into mud season now.


Thanks

Guess that really says it all. Suspension seat one way or another. Have tosee what they cost from scag versus the Michigan option.

I couldn't tell you what a fixed seat vs. a suspension seat is like in a comparison
because I've only ever used the suspension one, but it is nice and I don't think
I would want to do without.

There is a huge difference between a suspension seat and non-suspension seat. The suspension seat takes the "jolts" out of the bumps in lawns and makes the ride smoother. You still can get bumped around a little but the bumps are "softer". The suspension seats are great investments.

I have the seat from Northern and like it. Has some nice adjustment. Weight, back upright adjustment and front to back adjustment. Mine was $300 too.

Was given a new Wildcat Soft Ride seat missing only the seat cushion and cover. Cover I can get thru the dealer, but does not come with the actual foam cushion. No one seems to know how to acquire the actual foam insert. Seems to be the worlds best kept secret! any one out there know the answer? Thanx!
