    I'm looking at this machine and due to injuries I need the softest ride possible.

    Dealer #1 says flex forks and suspension seat.

    Dealer #2 say flex forks as suspension seats won't fix the super duties.


    What is the truth?

    They are both right / truthful.
    We don't officially offer a suspension seat for the FasTrak SD, but can it be bolted on, I am sure a dealer or 2 knows how to do it.
    The mower has springs built into the seat platform, so you already have some suspension.
    I would go with the Flex Forks and see how it feels to you.

    Thanks, due to a bad back I'm looking for as much cushion as possible.

    PJ - What part # do I ask for if I want to "upgrade" the seat for my Fastrak Super Duty?

    Any modification needed for the Super Duty application or does the #792051 "bolt right up"?

    I am not sure, I have never done one myself, but I believe it will bolt right up.

    Ive put a few on, All u need to do is put a few washers between the seat and seat pan to raise it up a little, It will rub a bit and not slide smooth if you dont, but other then that they will bolt right up.

    OK - I called my dealer today and ask him to order the #792051 for my machine. He told me that he would not order the seat for my machine because the seat would be "too high" for safety reasons. Can I call Hustler and order it through them? :usflag:
