A & I Deluxe Midback Utility Seat - Yellow, Model# TM555YL
Replace Seat on JD 175 Hydro
I replaced the seat on my John Deere 175 Hydro. It went on easily -- unbolt the old seat and bolt on the new one with the same bolts -- Piece of cake. The new seat looks great and makes the mower look like a new mower. Very good quality seat. The seat has more padding so it sits a little higher and slightly farther forward than the old one. I intend to leave it that way. This seat has good back support -- the old one had none. I'm very happy with the new seat and at a very good price.

Rapid decay outside
I put this seat on my tractor last summer. It's left outside. It's turning brown and getting brittle just a year later. I don't know if I got a bad one or not -- or if NT will replace -- but at this rate it may not make it into year two.

A & I deluxe seat
Product is well made and was priced right. This was a universal seat and had lots of holes on the bottom for attachments. However, the location of holes from front to back did not work well with the John Deere mower and I had to make modifications, because the seat was to close to the steering wheel. Would like to have known if there were different models that would have worked easier.

A & I Deluxe Midback Utility Seat - Yellow, Model#
Seat is as advertised.
More comfortable than OEM seat it replaced.
I had to get a little creative with spacer bushings under the front fasteners to get the seat bottom level (rather than tilting forward uncomfortably without them).
Buyers should be careful to select a replacement seat that will accomodate the machine's existing operator presence switch otherwise you will need to find a replacement switch that fits.

Riding mower seat
I recently purchased a riding mower seat for my John Deere. Very pleased with the product, looks good on the mower and it was the right color (yelllow). Decent delivery service. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I could only mount the seat to the bracket in one place, even with all the mounting holes in the seat. Overall a very good product. Will do business with Northern again.

Midbacked utitily seat
After some modifacations in mounting seat on my c 100 john deer mower I have rated it as a 4 star product. However there are a lot of items that are to be considered about " fitting a John Deer mower", after solving some of the probleums it is better than the orginal seat from the manufacture. however there is no adjustment as to forward and back. this is O K because I am the only operator on the machine. Good back support, that is much needed in my case. over all a good product. GBC Sandy Ut

Not a great match
Not a bad seat, just far from drop in on my JD430.
Even though it has about 6 sets of holes on the bottom, none match the original.
Because the back is thicker than the old metal base it has to be a little bit forward to clear the filler neck.
Padding is nice but it makes it higher than the original seat.
Fabricating a custom adapter, easier than returning and then paying for the genuine JD part.

Nothing wrong but bad advertising
I ordered this based on the advertising that it was good for any John Deere tractor but it was a long ways from fitting my GX345. Had to return. Couldn't rely on the descriptions so will have to get one from the dealer and pay an arm and a leg.

Great seat, great value!
I bought one of these for a lawn mower I was working on and was so impressed with it that I bought another to go on my garden tractor. This is a quality, very comfortable seat and I highly recommend it.
