    For my eXmark Lazer Z. The factory seat is beating me to death on my bumpy yard. I can't wait to get the new seat and install it. It's back-ordered though so it may take me a week or possibly two to get it. I'll post pictures of it installed once I get it :)

    Crap....it's on back-order until about May 3. Bummer. That sucks. Can't find it anywhere else for sale. Guess I have to wait. In the meantime though, a new Frontier RC2072 rotary cutter for the tractor will be here next week so I'll be a field mowing fool next week for sure! :laugh:

    Very nice. I hope the seat on that is better than the one they put on the 2305's. I get beat to death if I try to go faster than 2 mph cutting the lawn. That will be remedied though in about a month when I renovate.

    The seat on the 4120 is great. Adjustable for your weight and so on. It's the seat on my eXmark that I need replaced. That's what the new Michigan seat is for.

    I realize that. I laughed when I read your post because I've been fighting my own bumpy lawn ever since we moved here 4 yrs ago. The first thing I did was see if JD made a suspension seat or something for the 2305 which they don't. It was then I realized I was going to have to do a total renovation to smooth things out rather than just kill off the existing lawn/weeds & just slit seed it.

    STILL waiting on the seat - still shows backordered. I can't find anyone else that sells them other than Northern Tool either :(

    I would like to know how it works out for you. I bought a Lazer Z a few weeks ago and my yard is not the smoothest either. Have you checked with your eXmark dealer for a suspension seat? Mine quoted me 300 for the suspension seat or 150 for the suspension plate to go under the current seat.

    I haven't checked with my local dealer, but maybe I should. I heard other people saying they were being quoted nearly $500 for the same seat from the dealer.
