So...my TORO Z450 seats are falling apart and the frames were starting to crack from pushing off on the arm rests and seat back, padding is basically gone, springs have rusted and broke, springs and bolts poking the ol toosh, and the wood frame has rotted to nothing. One new seat...about $500 from TORO. These mowers are six years old and I will not drop $500 for a new seat...I have two mowers...$1000...nah. So, I've been watching eBay for the past six months and keep missing out on used or after market seats still selling for about $250-$300. Replacement aftermarket cushions are about $150. So, I kept looking and SCORE...a dealer had a listing for a BRAND NEW seat...$74.99. Someone had bought a new Z and upgraded to the G3 seats...and...he had two seats!!! I got both seats + shipping for $189.20!!! Received them yesterday and they are BRAND NEW and they are ORIGINAL TORO seats!!! I love eBay!
