    Default Full Suspension Seat on 2720

    Put a full adjustable Suspension seat on the tractor. It was a bit of work with some light welding. It makes a huge difference when mowing and I was able to work much faster. On the other hand, it raised the seat quite a bit. not a problem for me at 5'11" but shorter people might have a problem. The seat does compress so the total height difference is probably 2-2.5 inches.

    On the other hand, putting the nuts on the bolts just about killed me because there is no access under the seat pan. If have to take this off I think I will cry.

    I think the se seat may be the better compromise because it is lower profile and that means that your significant other could drive the tractor more easily ( assuming she is shorter than you )

    Charleyfarmall,this is true because she does cut grass with it.
