Rain today.  That means soaking wet butt next time I ride the tractor.

So, I'm looking to either replace the seat or get a nice waterproof cover.

I see a seat from ASC for a good price, actually cheaper than some covers!  It's urethane foam and has a drain hole too.  Just wondering about the high-back vs. a low-back.

There's also this one from Northern Tool, but it doesn't look as weatherproof.

Any preferences out there?

All of my junk has the old steel seats. Not too comfortable. I would think the low back would have a sportier look though. For rough terrain and off road conditions, shouldn't really need the high back all that much. At least that's what I would think. I think I'm going with some sort of cushion for my next build.

Personally I like a high backed seat much better than the lower backed ones. Plus that first one seems much more higher quality.

High back good for those long cross country runs. Yeah that top pic does look like tougher material though.

I like a nice guy back even though I don't have one the one on creepy crawlers it's pretty comfortable and when you're climbing nose steeper hill and riding wheelies you don't have to worry about sliding off the back

i personally prefer the tall back as they keep you in your seat better off road, and helps keep a part of your back from being caoted in mud. Just personal opinion. And the tall back one looks to be made of a better material.

Found this one as well.  A little cheaper, larger butt area (not that I need it) and a slightly lower back.  The 4 reviews were positive and they said it was good construction.  I think I'll get the first one that I posted, but wanted to put this one up in case anyone was looking for seats like I am.

I honestly havnt drove something with a tall back to tell you whats better but i sure do like my short seat. i kinda think it makes bailing easier, makes the look of the tractor good.

I always liked short back seats, till I got a nice tall back one, now I cant say enough good about em. I still think low back look cooler, but high back is much more comfy Very Happy especially if you ride for more than a half hour or so. I dont think its any harder to bail off a higher back seat, as I bail to the sides not off the back.....

Update!  I got the seat and bolted it on no problem.  The old seat came off with a gentle tug.  cheers

I'm impressed with it's construction and fit.  I mounted it slightly closer to the steering wheel than I should have.  Will make some slots and move it back if I can't get used to it.  But for now, I'm very happy with the upgrade.  Cool
