    Any of you guys/gals using a seat other than the standard seat?
    If so, which one;"suspension seat" or "built up seat" or maybe an aftermarket unit?
    I cut a lot of uneven lawns and with the speed up kit it can be a bumpy ride.
    Any assistance will be appreciated.:blob3:

    Just bought one last week, after installation will advise if any good, tried one out and found it a lot better. The back over ruled the price.

    I use the curb jumper for foot rest works fine.I also have the speedup kit a very seldom cut a full speed. If I need speed I have a Toro Z. If the yard is bumpy the even with a air ride seat when the rear wheel drops and comes back up it would seem that it would jar you in the back any way. just my opinion. NOT WORTH MUCH. :cool2:

    I have a Super Z with suspension seat.....ride isn't bad.

    My cousin runs a Walker and he too complained about the rough ride...plus his seat was worn. He actually got a seat from a mini van and fitted that to his mower. Looks funny but very comfortable.
