Seat Purchase Advice

Recommended Posts

Northern Tool has two seats for $39.99. One is vinyl, the other PVC. My tractor shed is open to the sky right now, and plans will be to keep it that way at least until the spring. The question: Has anyone bought either of the seats, and if so, why? I am leaning toward the PVC right now, due to the fact that my tractor shed roof leaks when it rains, snows, or the sun is shining.

This is the seat I bought for my Landlord 2010. It's had to endure some weather, and held up well. Can't beat the price too, but I don't know what kind of machine you are putting it on:http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_403691_403691

No Farm & Fleets or Fleet Farms by you (a WI, N IL, MN group of stores), but I bought their $54 or $57 slight high back seat for my 7016. Didn't save the packaging with the brand, sorry. Had to drill new holes for it to mount and used some saved GM b-body frame bushings to mount it (vibration dampening). It has threaded holes on the back though. Maybe a good spot for a light duty tool box, water bottle holder, glove holder. Hmmmm.

The tractor is a Landlord 101, 64 model, I believe, with the seat now totally gone. The ride is a bit harsh, so I think it is time. Thanks for the input. I had searched Northern for seats, but that one failed to show up. You saved me a bit of change, and I like the looks of that seat better, anyway. Thanks again.

      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
