    I heard a rumor sometime ago about suspension on some John Deere ztrs in 2007. Has anyone else heard this?

    my quik trac has a suspension. Called my legs. :)

    but no the platform you stand on has soft bushings giving you a bit of suspension....but still rough as hell.

    It would be great if they came out with a suspenion.

    That is why the Wright Standers are unbearable and so rough riding because they don't have a Spring loaded platform like the Deere and Dane.

    Yeh I know the quick traks have a slight shock absorbers under the platform. But I'm talking about the sit down ztrs having suspension similiar to a Ferris.

    I thought Ferris had the patent locked up on suspension systems for mowers. Has anyone else heard this?
