A & I Universal Black Seat - Black, Model# V-930
Seat is comfortable. Easy enough to mount. Arm rests seem very flimsy but I bought it for a zero turn mower which doesn't give you much chance to use them. Much easier to slide the seat forward and back with the lever than the original mower seat which required you to get off, flip the seat over, loosen a bolt, adjust, re-tighten the bolt, then flip the seat back up. However it will slip out of position with a very firm jerking movement. That could be a problem on atv-type vehicles going up and down steep hills but should be fine for mowers and tractors.

Lawn Mower Seat
The mounting tracks area universal to matchup with my mower. I don't see a problem with the installation. The seat structure is excellent.

industrial equipment seat
This seat is good for the price and easy to install with many universal mounting positions. Armrests look like they could be built a little stronger.

Easy to install on Craftsman mower. High back seat is much more comfortable on back. Armrest makes ride even better. Can ride all day in comfort.

Great seats for the price!
The seats arrived in a timely manner. They are just like the product description details ( not always the case). The material is durable and has good texture. I will reccommend this product to anyone.

Not Totally Universal
The mounting holes did not match up with the Bobcat 773 skidsteer I have even though the product claims universal for off-road and Bobcat is a popular brand. I had to modify a little which was aggravating.
One of the armrests went all the way down and does not stay up for resting your arm. The inner workings are all plastic and thus not fixable. It looks like the ribs and bosses in the plastic didn't mesh during assembly.
Overall the seat feels ok.

Installed on a Craftsman Garden Tractor
I bought this seat because of the high back support. I installed it on my Craftsman Garden Tractor and did not have to disconnect the seat safety switch. All that is required are 4 bolts and nuts, I used nylok nuts.
It takes a little time to line up the tracks, but it does fit.
The seat has met all my expectations for support, especially on a jerky start on a hill. No more sore back!!

Just What I Needed
I have a Terramyte backhoe, which works great, but doesn't have a very good seat, especially after 12 years. I bought this replacement seat hoping to be able to adapt it to my machine. While I wasn't able to use the slide rails that came with this one, because the rails on the backhoe are welded to the base, this seat adapted easily to my machine. I only had to drill a couple of holes and it went together in minutes. It is so much more comfortable than the old one, and without the seams that some seats have, it should last a lot longer. The flip up arm rests are a nice plus too. This seat has made working on the backhoe a much easier experience.
