What is a ComfortGlide Suspension?
The ComfortGlide seat suspension from John Deere is a system for zero-turn mowers that allows fore and aft movement in the seat when driving over uneven terrain. It allows front to rear movement of 1-in. to be absorbed, allowing the seat to move with you, not against you. The suspension reduces horizontal vibrations and jarring, making a huge improvement to comfort.
The ComfortGlide suspension includes two adjustable springs and a lever for adjusting the seat position. The springs under the seat can be moved closer to the front for heavier operators or back for lighter operators. The lever position can be adjusted while sitting and can be used to:
- Slide the seat forward and backward, allowing more legroom
- Engage and allow fore/aft movement
- Disengage and lock the seat in position
When the seat is down, a spring-loaded latch will lock it in place for security. The seat can easily be raised back up to access the adjustable seat springs.
The ComfortGlide Suspension is available on every Z900 seat option, including the new Z994R and Z997R Diesel models. ComfortGlide also comes standard on Z700 M and R models.
