    I had to have a back operation this past offseason and I run a bobcat fastcat pro that I live but it's a rough rider on the back. I'm think about getting a new zero turn with better suspension. What would you recommend? Thanks for the help

    I don't think ztrs and bad backs go together.

    • Buy a stander (but then your knees would go out too)
    • Scag Cheetah with suspension platform (whole body is isolated from shock)
    • Ferris with independent suspension
    • Bad Boy with independent rubber shock absorbers and I think Grammer suspension seat
    • Hustler with Flex Forks and Suspension seat
    • Buy an airbag suspension seat from Grammer for your current mower
    • Buy an add-on suspension system for your current mower seat

    Perfect setup IMO: Scag Cheetah with a suspension seat added. Excellent cutting deck, speed, and comfort.
