    Ergonomics look similar to the Cheetah seat with more side bolster and, of course, suspension added? I hope so cause my TT comes in next week. I will upload some pics.

    I think someone on here had mentioned the Cheetah seat being more comfortable than the TT seat.

    Haha, almost as bad as the wing on the Bad Boys. Maybe next year BB will offer spinners or floaters on their mowers:laugh:

    I recently bought some TT's and chose the Scag Michigan style seat over the new suspension seat. I compared them side by side and the new seat is nice but I've always liked the Michigan seat. The new seat doesn't have lumbar support but you can adjust the angle of the back. It also doesn't have a rain / water leak hole. It is fairly soft but the cover material felt thin and cheap to me. Plus it velcros up the back and as it ages, it'll probably keep opening up. I did like the weight control knob better than the knob on the Michigan.

    Well I ordered a suspension seat for a worn out seat thinking it would come in a michigan. Well I got the new style, seems nice. Once the snow melts I'll have a decent comparson of the two.

    I sat on a new TT and new Cheetah last Sat that had the new seats on them. They felt pretty comfortable to me. I liked the new style knob for weight adjustment. It makes it very easy to adjust while sitting on it, but it seemed to sort of oscilate in it's mooring as I twisted the knob to get it to my weight, and it took quite a few turns to do. Once I got it set for me, it felt very good, with a decent amount of travel up and down.
