Suspension seat

Considering buying suspension seats for my Grasshopper and Walker. They are a very expensive option from the factory if I recall correctly. Anybody own one of these? Good deal? Or pass?

Suspension seat

I've got one on my walker. I definitely like it. Not sure if I'd pay the big bucks for it again or maybe instead go for the "comfort seat" upgrade.

One thing I notice is it makes you sit up higher than a regular seat. It does a good job absorbing bumps. My back doesn't hurt from sitting In the seat most of the day.

I bought mine off ebay, $305 delivered. If bought from Northern Tool with TN 9.5% sales tax, I saved $55-$60! As I recall, it was sold as an OEM swap out and sold OBO, I offered $275 plus the $30 shipping. Mounted on my Scag TT easy and works great.

It was my "early" Christmas present last year!

The Michigan seat actually seems more comfortable then my
$600 suspension seat upgrade on my new 950m it seems kinda of hard and you don't really sit into it, if that makes sense. It absorbs bumps kinda well but not amazing. Maybe I was just expecting too much? A big difference though from a standard seat.
