Zero-Turn Riding Mower Fitted With Air Ride Seat
Iím 88 years young and have back problems, but I still love to mow our 7-acre lawn. I replaced the seat on my Hustler FasTrak zero-turn riding mower with an air ride seat made for an IH tractor. It really rides nice - I can drive with the throttle wide open but still feel like Iím just floating along. Helps take the bumps right out. I love it.
††††The air ride seat attaches with 4 bolts using existing holes in the mounting platform. I had to grind out the holes a bit to make the bolts fit. I wired the seat to the mower battery to power the seatís air pump. A lever on front of the seat is used to raise it up or down. The lower the seat, the softer the ride.
††††I bought the seat at Northern Tool for about $990. But I figure that at my age, if youíre going to spend $8,000 on a new mower you might as well spend a little more and get a really nice seat, too. (Alvin Schmidt, 108 8th Ave. N., Saint James, Minn. 56081)
