Ohhh my achin' back... My back is killing me from mowing with my 1026R so... I went to upgrade my seat per several earlier threads. They indicate that an upgraded seat is a bolt on replacement using the Deluxe High Back Seat, BM21490 with the bracket, BM21332. When I tried to place an order I found out that John Deere has obsoleted the deluxe seat and it is not available anywhere I can find. They replaced it with a new Air Ride Seat BM24379 which I am guessing is likely NOT compatible with the 1026R. I assume it needs certain electrical connections? And I don't know if it would bolt on as the Deluxe Seat did since they are both designed for the X700 series and not the Series 1.
Any knowledge out there about fitting the new Air Ride seat to the 1026 or where I might be able to find the obsoleted Deluxe Seat would be appreciated?
