    You can get a seat for a Jungle Jim's. I think Exmark has a sulky with a seat to.

    I have always wondered about these sitting velkies. I was never sure if they put extra stress on the motor and the opps always looked like making turns is a strain and stress.

    I would like to hear about this from those who have it,

    I would rather stand than sit

    I do recall erics but it wasnt a real true sitting velkie it was just a bike seat. I was talking about the ones with the full seat.

    I had one on an old Toro 52" Belt WB.

    With mine, I lost the zero turn capability. Backing up was almost impossible.
