Michigan Seat Highback Suspension Seat - Black, Model# V-5300
Decent seat but not worth the money
Seat is better than factory seat but not worth the current price.

Title is discriptive
The seat bolted up to my Hustler Z without any modifications. Absolutely the most comfortable I have been in years while mowing, should have bought this years ago.

Mower replacement seat
The seat is fine, but the way that it was shipped was unacceptable. It came in a large box with no padding. One of the mount bolts was broken and had to be welded back on. There was no paperwork or instructions of how to mount it or change out the operator present switch. A beginner would have sent the seat back. I was able to repair it and make it work. As I said, the seat is fine, but it was overpriced, considering the amount of work I had to do to repair it and mount it.

The suspension seat has literally saved my back, kidneys, and my sanity. Now when I mow 28 acres, the fatigue doesn't happen any longer. It's well constructed and was a breeze to install in under 20 minutes. It is well worth the price,

We purchased this seat to replace our oem Dynapac seat. Looks the same and has the seat switch. Unfortunatley it took us a while to figure out why the seat switch was keeping the unit from operating. It comes with a normally open switch and we needed a normaly closed for our aplication. We changed the switch but the seat weight selector still isnt working properly. Overall its a good seat.

This seat is the difference between me being able to mow or not. After 4 back surgeries I couldn't handle it anymore so I threw the dice and bought this seat for my JD 777. I also have a Z930A with a regular seat and I cannot use it but I can use the one with this seat. My wife says she can't tell a difference, (I don't think she adjusted it right), but it makes all the the difference to me. If I use the seat I'm fine, if i use the one without, which I won't do again, I'm in bed for a week.
I really think it's great. Hope it works as well for everyone who tries it.

This seat is a great replacement for any of your larger turf equipment, it absorbs almost all of the bumps and shocks, very durable, ease of installation, only minor modifications required for installation, the seat was much cheaper in price than an OEM seat.

Model V5300 suspension seat
I was searching for add on seat suspension for my Grasshopper 200 series mid mount commercial mower when I came across this seat with all the toy's. I mow at least 10 + acres, and the old seat, along with humps and bumps in the lawns were hurting my back . So I decided to spend a little and give it a try. I received it in excellent shape. With slight modification to my mower, It fit like a glove (you'll have to supply the mounting nuts and washers). My back say's AHHH ! This has the lumbar support, Dial your weight suspension, adjustable back rest (tilt froward and back) , as well as tracks to adjust forward and back (like a bucket seat in a car) The only thing missing is a cup holder. All I can say is what a RELIEF. Lower back and leg pain is gone. If you can afford to get one, by all means DO! You wont be disappointed! I really didn't want to spend the $$, but NO PAIN = PRICELESS! Thank you Northern Tool for carrying this seat at an affordable price.

Installed on a 54" scag 0 turn mower. Removed 4 bolts to remove old seat. New seat fit bolt pattern with no modifications needed. 1/2" spacers from scag seat gave perfect spacing for seat to clear hydrolic tank fill cap.
Seat ride and quality is very good. This seat cost half as much as factory replacement seat and is just as good in materials and workmanship
