    Love my 61" Exmark ZTR but hate the ride. I have contemplated getting a Ferris but am wondering if a good quality suspension seat would do the trick. I am looking for a high quality seat at a good price. Any recommendations?

    I found this seat at mowerseat.com at a price of $289.00. Here is the description. What do you think??

    The Michigan suspension seat at Northern tool is a great buy at about $319 plus shipping but is black. Air you tires down to 9 psi, that will help and won't hurt the cut. Nothing is going to make an Exmark ride too good.

    I have an original seat with the suspension kit I'm thinking about putting on Ebay. My dealer ordered a full suspenion seat for me for $500 after some hagling. It is the same seat as Northern sells but grey.
