Wanted: Seat

Recommended Posts

DDP021
I just finished restoring an AC 900 series tractor. To finish the project I had to 'borrow' a seat from my dad's 916 tractor he tills will. :o)....Suffice to say he's not too happy!...haha...Does anyone have a stock 900 series seat that's in good condition for sale? I know this may be a tough order finding one that's not worn or cracked. I tried emailing the Michigan Seat Co. who made the original but never heard back. I even tried bidding on one on eBay but lost out.

Thanks Roy...I was HOPING to find an exact matching seat that came on the tractor but that maybe out of the question. Not too many good seats like that around anymore. :o)

Checkout Tractor Supply and Northern Tool. Both carry seats.

Dave, At one time Tractor Supply had a seat that was a direct replacement for a Simplicity. It looked the same and also had the correct bolt holes. I was looking at one. When I went back later to buy one, they didn't have any in stock at the local store. I ended up buying one that was a little different. Authenticity doesn't matter to me. It it looks right on the tractor, what do I care, when I am mowing the grass or dragging a log. All my tractors are workers. No "show queens" around my house. The dings and scratches on mine are earned.

I hear ya Rod...I just had heard about someone ordering one from TSC or someplace and it having a cub cadet logo imprinted on the seat itself..I can't have that!!!..I just primarily like the seat highth on the original. Plus some of these seats you get crack after one year. I'm not sure what I'll end up doing with this one we just redid..I have one 900 already for mowing, one that has a tiller on it and a 400 with the snow blower. I also have a 900 we setup for tractor pulling. This latest one was a spring project me and my dad did together. Thanks again for the info.

A few years ago the dealer told me they could still get them. They were something like $114. A different dealer had a Simplicity seat sitting around, it is the same as the 700/900 seats but with different mounting holes, they told me it was for a cub cadet and I got it for $70. At one time there were seat covers for these on Ebay but I haven't seen any for a long time. You might try Sandy Lake Implement, they would probably know where to get one or have a used one. This dealer has sold used seats and was able to get new ones last I checked. www.bertelssales.com You might give them a call.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
