Looking for a bobcat mower suspension seat

We bought a used 2009 bobcat procat and it came with the standard seat. I wanted to see if anyone had a suspension seat they would like to sell.

Thanks, Dave

I was hoping to save a little money but I might as well just give them a call.

The higher end Bob-Cat's use a Michigan suspension seat like many other ZTR's out there. So just look for a Michigan brand suspension seat and it should work.

I just looked on Ebay and found a seat that someone has listed as a Forklift seat but, it looks like mine except this one is black.

The michigan suspension seat will be what you need. You can find them online for cheaper than what you can get them for at the dealer....like the one mentioned above on ebay. It should just bolt right on and then plug in the safety switch on the seat and you should be good to go.
