    anyone know of an after market suspension seat set-up for a kubota zd?


    the stock seat is garbage and mine is wore out.

    Any of them should fit... as I would think the bolt pattern is the same.

    Northern Tool sells the Michigan seat the others use for a more reasonable price.

    If it won't work, get a seat assembly from the Kubota 300 series.

    You can unplug the seat and plug in a new one.

    But if you want to keep your current seat, then just get the mechanical suspension unit from Kubota. They had them on the ZD21 and ZD28.

    Your better off with the Michigan seat from Northern (as Envy suggested) even though it's black. The mechanical add on is not as comfortable and sits the seat up higher. I've tried and own both. It has the kill switch built in.

    And the seat they used to put on the Kubotas... well I had that type seat before... and I could feel the plate for the safety switch against my hiny. Very uncomfortable.

    This seat fits Scag, Toro, Exmark, etc. It is the standard suspension seat used by most manufacturers. It's black, and doesn't have the logo is the only difference. make sure the bolt pattern matches. They will give you the measurements somewhere on the site. Great seat, better than the add on in my experience.
