suspension seat insert

has anyone installed an suspension seat insert. What a pain it was to do it on my new JD z950. It took me about an 1 hr to put it on. I don't know about other manufactures but it was a pain.

I just did it to my 950. Took me about 1/2 hour and I was taking my sweet time making sure I did it right. I love this thing. I was hesitant due to reading several posts here that said it really made little difference. I don't know what those guys were smoking, because it works awesome. I should have did this a year and a half ago.

So, you went from a 950 to the Ferris, and now back to a new 950? What happened to the Ferris?

The ferris just got out of the shop after being in it for 2 weeks. They replaced coil packs and can sensor. I have been using my fathers JD z830a. Well long story short the ferris quite running on my customers lawn. So back to the shop again. So I decided to get back into the Deere. I will keep both machines. That way my father can keep his without me adding the hrs to his Deere. So now I have a new z950r.

My dad has the standard with mulch kit. I had to get the mod deck
Even though u guys don't like it. I love the mod deck. It does amazing with my grass down here. I love how I can cut thick stuff down so much faster. I love it

I wish I would have taken pics today. I cut some one weeks worth of growth on some fescue down from about 7-8" to 3.5". I had to double cut to get a clean cut and get rid of the clippings which were clumping a little even though the grass was dry and I have the two removable baffles taken out for maximum airflow. This deck is just too tightly baffled. The place looks great after two passes, but it should have after one.

I really do not like the MOD deck at all. I'm glad that it is working out for you though. This one does fine up here when I get into stiffer bladed grasses, but they are the exception rather than the rule here.

Full speed and not one strangler or any windrow. I mulched and side discharged and it was great. So far so good
