A & I Gator Seat -Yellow, Model# VG11696
Not a perfect fit
first of all the box look like someone too a baseball bat to the cardboard, but not damage to the seat.
The bolt holes were not correct as indicated when searching for a replacement seat.
THE WORST THING WAS THAT THE HANKER NUTS THAT WERE PRESSED INTO THE SEAT, THE TREAD WERE BAD ON 2 OF THE FOUR. This caused me to get one of the bolt lock up and while trying to release the bolt the nut or threaded applicance became dislodged in the seat.. With a lot of work I believe I still am able to work with this . I did not have time to send it back as I needed to use the tractor asap.
No bolts came with the seat. Not the same size as the original seats bolts. So Off to the hardware store I went.. I brought the dislodged "threaded nut" with me and even the new bolt would not turn into this peace.
So needles to say you can guess I want definitely not happy with this product.
If you asked me, which I would be surprised to see it happen. I would like some money back or credited to my account.
This is a first for me to have to go through all of this to get any thing to work correctly that I have ever ordered in the past.

High back Gator seat
Bolted right on to my craftsman mower. Had to remove the seat adjuster but never used it anyway.The Gator seat is very comfortable compared to the original. Good price and delivery time.

I HAD TO DRILL TWO HOLES IN MY SEAT MOUNTING BRACKET TO FIT THE BOLT PATTERN BUT WAS A SIMPLE THING TO DO. WAS ONLY OFF ABOUT 3/4" ---- OTHER WISE A GREAT SEAT FOR THE MONEY THE HIGH BACK MAKES IT EASIER TO RELAX ALSO.

A & I Gator Seat - Yellow, Model# VG11696
GREAT replacement seat.
Outstanding Value - at more than 50% LESS than the "name brand" seat.
Fantastic factory replacement seat, complete oem-bolt-in replacement (you do need to buy new bolts), which actually has more support and is more comfortable than the original seat it replaced.
Highly recommended for "John Dear" replacement seats.

I purchased the gator seat for my yardman riding mower.The mower came with a low seat that was very uncomfortable as it had very little padding and a very low back height.i saw the gator seat on your site and saw that it had a great deal of padding and a high back portion to the seat .To say that i am pleased is an understatement.Once i installed the seat which was very easy due to the multiple mounting holes . I instantly felt the results of the extra padding and high back portion of the seat. I have low disc and low back problems and pretty uneven and rough ground that i mow.after installing the seat my low back pronblems were greatly reduced while mowing..The only real draw back to the seat that i found is that the mounting screws which hold the fiberglass back to the padding were too short and so i had to install longer screws to make the seat secure and usable

when installing, the original bracket for the gator did not line up properly with the new seat. after leaving off a few parts it did work fine. good seat and so much cheaper than john deere's version

Product not up to snuff
I bought these seats for my Gator and had problems right away. They started falling apart in no time, and aren't made well at all. My gator is not used on a daily basis (maybe weekly), so there would be no reason for this problem other than poor workmanship. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra to get the original seats.
