    Default air ride seat

    I was wondering if anybody has sprung (no pun intended) for the air ride seat?
    My 3720 should be here soon, and I would like to know if this pricey option is "all that". I would love a better ride, but for almost $500 bucks, it better make the tractor ride like Aladin's magic carpet.

    Thanks

    I have the same seat on my 4310. I love it, even without the air ride feature... Now if I had back trouble or something, I might think $5000 was a bargain....

    I like mine. It's not as springy, and quite adjustable. I weigh in at 215 or so and I can inflate till my feet leave the floor. Having the ability to unlock the fore/aft motion is also nice.

    My back gives me grief and I bottom the spring on my 455 so this was a simple choice for me. Not a lot of hardware for the $$$, but it works nice so far...

    Although I don't have back problems, I'm a big boy at 265....
    After 4 hours mowing, It takes me a few minutes to shake off the shakes.
    Hopefully, I will find one at a dealer to try out.
    Thanks for the replies folks..

    The entire suspension for the seat. There's not a lot to it, but it works. Air bag and fill/release valve. inside new mechanism. The mechanism is booted like the older seats were also. It is definitely nicer ride though...

    Had seat and suspension off to do Power Beyond install today. Seat and suspension weigh 65#+ which I am sure is quite a bit more than the std suspension. Along with the air bag there is also a small shock absorber or gas prop. Now if they had given the ability to adjust damping...

    Still loving the air seat suspension!
