    thus far is that Hustler should make the seat adjustment slots longer. There is like 8-10" of room between the seat and motor. Sliding the seat back another 3" will help those of us who are over 6' tall. This will also make the key, throttle, choke and PTO a little more accessible.

    Hey mowerconsultant, ask and see if Hustler will make me one to fit a new MINI Z 42" cut with the slots about 4" longer(to the back) than what the currently are?

    The slots and the seat positioning is like it is for a reason, safety standards.
    The seat must be positioned where it is for the mower to meet uphill stability tests.
    We certify the mower with the seat as far back as it can go and still pass this test.
