The Level Ride ™
Stabilizing Seat Device for Lawnmowers
Here's how it works:
A bottom plate is connected generally level with the main body of the riding lawn mower. The original seat springs can be attached between the bottom of the plate and the body to provide shock absorption. A top plate is connected to the bottom plate at pivoted connections at the front and rear of the bottom and top plates. Therefore the bottom and top plates can be pivoted with respect to each other. There is a brake plate that can be activated in order to prevent movement of the top plate with respect to the bottom plate when the rider is on level ground and he doesn't want the seat to pivot. A handle is connected to the brake plate in order to activate the brake plate manually. Over a two-year period of modifications and use, the inventor has seen that this new product offers improved comfort and ease in operating riding lawn mowers and other types of equipment.
