I have one for the suggestion box

Maybe someone has come up with a solution better than my suggestion. If so please chime in.

Why on earth did they not sew in some pockets in the seat back? Or a small "glove box" besides the seat. I need a place for my ipod, and phone. A pocket for trash would be great. But a simple pocket seems so obvious I can't believe there isn't one. At least on my Fastrack.

No kidding. I have a little pull string backpack on my vride and a cloth bag from a grocery store on my cheetah. Love the drawstring bag the best. I have it on the pad between my legs.

My exmark has a cup holder and a spot for my satellite radio to sit.

All manner of smaller lawn equipment suffers from a lack of storage .
I tied this flight-bag . Holds cloths , rope , secateurs etc .

Additional ideas for a SZ HD are:

Cut outs in the floor pan at front to allow visual of front edge of deck. Wouldn't take much.

Quick adjustable peg on deck lift. If a person adjusts the seat to a happy medium between full leg extension and comfortable arm position (along with adjusting the steering arms) the pedal can be too close for nice control (floating the deck) when cutting shorter in the early spring and fall.

Cool tires, LR3, look like they're for a skidsteer.

For storage, I'm contemplating bolting a toolbox to the rollbar to act as a "trunk." Anybody else done this?

Be careful. Weight issue of being top heavy, air flow for cooling, and nobody in the world of Gov't safety agencies likes anything done to or around the Roll Bars.

They're 26x12x12 from a Kubota BX . Called Industrial series ( they have Ag and tuff also in this range ) , but they're not a Kubota specific tire . I run them at 7-9 psi and I'm delighted with the traction , although obviously they can't defeat gravity . Zero turns are not for fooling about on !
