Michigan Seat Highback Suspension Seat - Black, Model# V-5300
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

Not a good product
I bought a Scagg mower 3 years ago new, it had a V-5300 seat on it..the seat back just broke and flops in the wind...I don't expect items to last forever but 3 years and its junk..no thanks

Very comfortable seat and seems to be well made. Must be since it wasn't damaged on the way here, box was torn to pieces when it arrived but seat was in great shape.
Love the adjustability and comfort.

My thirty year old graveley seat was killing my back. This seat was a challenge to mount; no wiggle room in drilling holes. It sure is comfortable! Poorly packed, it arrived with a bent mounting bolt. Was able to straighten it.

Way better made than I expected. Almost too good to be true! The quality is outstanding.
Mine came in unpadded cardboard box, but no damage--see other reports of damage from the lousy packaging--
It mounted onto my Simplicity Cobalt 27 in just a half hour with 4 simple drill holes. 11" high & 11.5" wide.
I'm delighted !!

Excellent product...perfect fit for my Hustler 60" Super Z. The bolt pattern was a perfect match...no drilling necessary. This seat is far superior to the OEM seat. The adjustability makes for a much more comfortable ride on rough terrain.
