    Those that have run Scags for a while. How do you like the suspension seat compared to the plush high back seat. The reason I'm asking is I'm supposed to get the upgrade as soon as the seat comes in but I actually am getting to like the standard high back seat. I understand that Michigan Seat makes the suspension seats for Scag, Exmark, Hustler, etc. I really liked the Suspension seat on the Hustler and it made a big difference in the Exmark but to be honest the tiger isn't riding too bad with just the high back seat. So I would like to hear from Scag owners that have used both and how you feel about the ride. I have had two guys locally tell me that the high back is better? I may just keep both seats just to make sure I get the one I want but would like some input from those that have tried it both ways on a Scag.

    I all ready know it makes a big difference on other brands.

    I went from the high back to the suspension and I really like it after using it for a while. It was different going from the thick padded seat to the thinner suspension seat but it really absorbs the shock much better which means alot on those long days!

    I have both and the suspension seat does make a difference you do not get as much of a back slap out of the suspenion seat as you do on the high back both of mine are on saber tooth tiger mowers
