A & I Black Suspension Seat - Black, Model# T222BL
Great Value, nice design and easy to install
The product appears to be well constructed and has many features for the price. I am an engineer and appreciate everything about this product starting with the easy of installation. Someone's else's review mentioned it did not come with the bolts to fasten to my tractor. That is true however not necessary, because you can use the bolts that are part of the tractor when removing the old seat. All the hardware that is part of the seat do come with it. The features that I appreciate the most are 1) the ability to vary the spring in the seat for each riders various weights. 2) the ability to slide the seat back and forth depending on the height of the rider. This may not be important to some but I have various riders using my tractor. The factor seat required loosening large bolts each time you wanted to slide the seat either direction.
My reason for purchasing the seat was because I have had lower back surgery and was looking for a softer ride. It definitely helped when compared to the factory John Deere seat. I wish it had a better lumbar support design. Unfortunately this is true with most seats/chairs/couches etc. that you purchase. I wish all manufactures would take this into account beings many people have lower back issues. Just like every chair I use I added my own lumbar support to this.

A & I Black Suspension Seat, Model# T222BL
I purchased this seat around 10 years ago and installed it on a Kubota L3350 tractor. I had to move the gas tank back and drill new holes for the seat. I love this seat, it makes the ride feel like you are in a car. I wore the seat cover and foam under it out and needed to replace it so I purchased a new one a few months ago. Bolted right on the old mounts. If I ever need to replace a seat on anythinf else, this is the one I will purchase.

Purchased this seat almost a year ago and it has held up perfectly and works as described, my back thanks you. Used daily in a commercial application, an excellent value as well.

A&I Black Suspension Seat #T222BL
We use our seats for the driver and passenger in a 16 foot aluminum runabout boat, and are very pleased with their performance. They were easy to mount, easy to adjust, and in our experience they will absorb the pounding of anything from a light chop up to a 6 foot ocean chop.

Purchase the seat to replace the on Kubota L37, was not direct replacement but all had to do is drill two holes and must remove the seat switch. The quailty is great and the seat is a major improvement on the back. I now don't even noticed the bumps on the field and can work a little longer at a faster pace.

Ordered this seat for my small Yanmar garden tractor. I received the seat in three parts. The base, the back, and the seat. There were no bolts to attach the seat and back to the base. I called customer service and the rep. was very nice. She called the company that made the seat and was told this seat did not come with hardware but I could purchase a hardware pack. You would think they would furnish hardware to assemble their seat.

Well built, easy install
I purchased two of these as replacement seats, one for a TCM wheel loader and another for a Yanmar track hoe. Assembly was quick and the install was easy, only requiring drilling new mounting holes on the machines, which I expected. Being able to adjust the springs to the operators' weight is a nice comfort feature, adding to the overall value.

I recently bought 3 of these seats for 3 different forklifts we have. Ingersoll Rand, Lull, and a Skytrak. I had to do a little modification to the ingersoll mounting plate but everything went in smoothly. These seats are a huge backsaver for the operators. I would definitly recommend these seats!
