i put one on my z920a a few years ago. it is definately worth it. it saves your back.

i was able to find a kit on ebay for $150 though.

you may wanna just look into buying a whole suspension seat like they have on the newer deere models. it may not cost that much more.

yeah that's what i mean. it will be $400 by the time you add tax for the other suspension kit.

might as well spend $600 and get the good one.

i dunno just an idea.

i dunno why these seats cost so much money. probably costs them $100 to make it if that much.

My dealer told me he could set me up with that platform like yours for just over $300.

I think they are all gouging the crap out of us because they know we need to be comfortable all day, and are willing to pay for it.

Mmmm....... the seat costs 10% of the sale price. I think a pillow strapped across a 2x10 will do just fine in that case.

Aw, half of that is just paying for the beautiful view you and Mick have while mowing.
