Been wanting to get a better seat for mine for a long time now and with the way my back is, it needs one! The 'U' bend spring doesn't do much unless the rider is 300 lbs so thought about cutting it at the bend, hinging it and adding a couple of springs at the open end. Gotta be better than what it is now....Prices have gone way up on mowing equipment, even the "bargain" big-box-store offerings...those are all made by just two manufacturers, you know! No matter the color, it's either MTD or another manufacturer for all of those. The Lowe's "John Deere" is JD in name only.
I got a great deal on my new mower. I paid a lot for mine, I won't lie. But it is very, very sturdy and strong. The difference between it and the old unit is day and night. I plan on getting the air-ride seat for it in a couple of weeks. I tried that seat out, and it's incredible!
It really depends on the size and terrain of your yard. I have 1.3 acres of yard, and this does the job like no other mower I've used.
It even has LED headlights, so if I get the hankerin' to mow at midnight, I'm set! The daytime temps and humidity can be brutal in OK in the Summertime!
