    Default Replacement seats for JD 318

    My current seat is tore up really bad. I must replace the thing before using the tractor. Does anyone have some recommendations on brand and style. I'm looking to spend about 100 bucks. I found the following seat online, I know I will need to fabricate a mounting plate, but I run a machine shop and that won't be a problem. Is anyone using this seat currently?

    Universal Tractor Seat with Adjustable Suspension, Yellow - 0278213 | Tractor Supply Company

    Are the original low back or high back seats actually the best?

    I also found these units on ebay:

    John Deere Tractor / Gator Seat with Logo - High Back 18" Seat - NEW | eBay


    Thank you in advance for help anyone can give.

    I was wondering what you ended up buying??? I want to swap my JD stock seat for one with suspension. If you bought one with springs or shocks I'd like to know how you like it.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for asking.

    I did buy a seat, but not one with any suspension. I bought a seat very comparable to the original, but at half the price... (a sale at Farm & Fleet) for 65 bucks. It is an all steel body with NO plastic, so I'm very happy. We'll see how long the bright yellow outer covering lasts.
