    I bought the Sentar that has the saddle seat. Everyone said I would be hurting from using that type of seat but so far no problems. New suspension is nice ans can be adjusted. Not sure why you would be hurting unless you have no suspension at all.:confused:

    Mine gets sore sometimes also. I sit on mine about 8-9 hours a day. If it is hot, humid, or bumpy conditions, it only makes it worse. Short selection may help, and also not wearing a wallet. It gets better, well worth it to have a Z rider.

    I find that if I take the rear of my grass collections system off, and leave the front wheal weights on, it’s hard on my rear end. So I either have to leave all the collection system on…I hate that. Or take it all off…. Then my rear end is fine. I only have it on when im using it. My Bobcat Z is a race horse with out all that weight and size. It won’t turn for beans with the front weights on and the hopper off the rear.

    It was a kubota with a suspension seat- I guess I didn't have it adjusted right.

    If it is a ZD the seat has a peice of plywood in it to actavate the safty switch. I had to change the seat bottom on mine because after about 1.5 to 2 HRS my but hurt.

    try letting a few psi outtat the back tires. We run them a few pounds under and it makes a world of difference in the way it rides. Make sure not to takes to much out, only a few pounds.
