    I bought this seat the other day and noticed a striking resemblance to the one Exmark offers. Color looks a bit off but everything else looks the same. I would be curious to know if this is the same seat manufacturer.[​IMG]

    GreenQuestLawn,

    Congratulations! That's a nice looking seat.

    It's difficult to say if it's from the same manufacturer or even the same model from the manufacturer we use but it certainly does look quite similar. Most seat manufacturers will have multiple variations of the same seat with various features.

    Thanks

    Terry

    I agree the black will sting a bit this summer but for $250.00 less than the light grey one I will take that pain.

    While we are on the subject of seats, are there any confortable seats that can be installed on Exmark's self steering sulky? Love my sulky but man is it a hard ride in the rough.

    weepwood,

    To be honest this is the only request I ever recall getting for a different seat on the sulky.

    The bolt pattern for the seat I believe is fairly common so I'm confident there should be something out there. I'd recommend that you maintain the same seating position as the original seat. This will help ensure that you're not too close or too far from the machine to operate it comfortably.

    I’d probably recommend staying with something that has a fairly low back due to the spring design used on the seat mount. There are several seats used in the agriculture industry that may fit the bill.

    Good luck

    Terry
