    My friend wanted a suspension seat for his Walker mower and found that Walker wanted over $1000 for the factory seat. He said "NO WAY" and bought a used Hustler suspension seat from our local dealer for $200. He say's it's the best money he ever spent.

    I have them on my John Deere 595 and 495's also --- They are the best investment I made. My back is not a problem anymore, even after 10 hr days.

    I think I read or saw that a company in Michigan makes them.

    BTW - John Deere wants $500

    Hmmm I wonder if that seat would fit on a walker with the ghs box on back. If it does I will definitely be buyiing one of those for mine.
