    My friend Mike owns the little Gravely, and made this himself.

    He likes it better than not having it.

    Remember, the heigth of the rubber

    and the heigth of the spring,

    will affect the tilt of the seat slightly.....

    It is hinged at the front...

    kenny.

    We havnt taken a picture of it yet, but we put the gravely suspension seat on the 34z. You have to trick the seat switch to make it work tho. Suspension seat is well needed on that little mower and it makes a big difference. Took away the only complaint I had about the thing.

    guys, i REALLY need a suspension seat on my Ferris. The seat on it is so rough riding that it cancels out almost all of the smoothness of the suspension. you can definately notice the suspension help though. Tomorrow i'll play with some springs if i get the chance.
    thanks for the reminder! if i find anythin to help i'll post it don't worry.
