Is that a front-deck, or a midmount machine? What year model is it? With this info., we can probably figure out who built it for Woods, then it will be easier to see if a suspension seat is available from the original manufacturer of the macxhine.
Well, I am not sure who made their front deck machines way back then. It is not a Grasshopper, and I don't think Encore started making them until a couple of years ago. You might have one from when Woods actually tried to make their own machines. Maybe someone else will know who made it. Good luck.
It looks alot like a grasshopper, so I would definetly try to do v-tread low pressure drive tires. I run the 21-11-8's , carlisle powertrac 2's, they should fit your rig, run them at 5-6 psi. you can find them on EBAY for 150 shipped, get them mounted locally.
If you need rims find a grasshopper dealer, they should fit, but check. the rims for those tires run a round 50 bucks.
I also run a suspension seat from tractor supply, at 68 bucks it is a cheap one, but better than nothing. the nicer 300 buck seats are much better, but I'm cheap.
keep your rear tires at around 15 psi, they tend to roll of lower than that.
Thanks for the ideas. I will see what the bolt pattern is for the seat mounts and start shopping for a suspension seat. Then I'll look into the low pressure drive tires. I may even try riding a horse a time or two! Thanks again for the help!
Grasshopper was not building the Woods machines back then. They quit building for Woods in the mid 90's. However, Woods may have still been using some copied Grasshopper parts. Do not plan on Grasshopper parts fitting on a 99 model Woods machine.
