    Default New Seat

    I thought I'd share my new seat pics with everyone... got it for my birthday!
    My old seat had weather cracks in it and the foam was water logged and I got a wet behind everytime I sat in it, even it had been dry for months. It was really getting old. lol
    New seat came from local tractor supply co. and is a great fit. It didn't come with the flip up brackets, I had to transfer them from my old seat.
    It is a little higher backed than the old seat but has a great feel to it. The box even lists grey Yanmars that it fits!
    Very happy with it, hope it holds up well.

    Looks good!

    I think every bit of height helps, as armor in case the mower ever throws a big chunk of debris.

    It is essential to have a comfortable seat if your plans are to get any work done, Is the very first thing I changed on my tractor when first getting it,... Incidentally: I was at northern tools Saturday and they had some tractor seats on clearance for 80.00 very confortable looking as well as had arm rest,

    I was also in need of a new seat when I recently refurbished my 1500D (Green). I wanted to retain as much of the original look as possible, even though the pan-style seats are not the most comfortable of seat designs.

    A friend of mine has started his own upholstery business on the side and we had discussed reupholstering the seat even before I started to refurbish the tractor. I took the seat to him after I had stripped the original upholstery off and sandblasted & painted the steel pan. I had sent him pictures of the seat before it was stripped. We agreed on the use of plain black and scrap materials to keep the cost down. He asked if I wanted anything special like pleats, but I told him that I was fine with whatever he wanted to do and the simplistic original design worked for me. During the wait though, I had wondered if I should have got the pleats as it sounded like the pleated seat may have a more appealing look.

    He sent me a picture of the seat when the job was done and I was amazed. There it was... complete with pleats! It looked even better in person when I picked it up. He did a great job and I think that it looks better on the tractor than the original smooth seat upholstery.

    I can't comment on the actual cost as he didn't want anything for the work. I had to give him a few dollars, although it was only a percentage of the value of the quality job that I received.
