Coming along with the cosmetic restoration and would like your help.  I have a Snapper 1650 that I'm painting in MF 1650 colors and would like recommendations of what seats others have bought and mounted WITHOUT MODIFICATION.  Also, I've put myself on a budget so nothing that exceeds $120 total (shipping and tax should be considered).  Would much prefer from $70-$100 and I'm 6'3" 207lbs so it can't be real small.  I kinda like the type that have a seat separate from the back but doesn't have to be.  If it has armrest it they must fold up. 

 

Thanks,

Reg :watch_over_fence:

Northern tool has the best prices on low back and high back seats, 49.00 for a low back and 59-69 for a mid to high back, personally I wouldn't go over a mid back seat any higher and the seat looks like a dinette chair, those seats might look good on newer tractors, but not the 1650, plus it makes it hard to turn around for a "look".

Just found a suitable seat on sale at the local farm and home store. Decided to go with one that has lots of adjustments and arm rests.  I'm 6'3" and hope to have grandchildren some day that I can let ride.  The one I got has a wide range of easy adjustments and arm rests to hold the little ones in.

No three point or rear PTO, you dont need to look behind anyway, good for you, arm rest were optional on the later 1650's

Didn't know that about arm rests. Thanks.
