+1 Don't put any more money into that original seat, as they seem to be notorious for cracking.
Here's my version of the upgrade to the X590 seat on an X394. I went with the Deere seat since my dealer was willing to play ball on a trade-in for the seat that came with the tractor.

I agree. My first OEM seat was replaced under warranty. When the dealer began to back peddle covering my second defective seat, I made the decision to go with the X590 seat (Milsco XB-200). I'm extremely happy with that decision!

Been following these posts and felt I had to reply. This the second seat on my 322. Granted it is 20 years old but it started cracking a couple years after I put it on and now it looks like this.Don't understand why after 30 yrs JD can't fix this problem. Plan on getting a seat cover but does anyone have one they would recommend ? I know Lowes, Home Depot and Ebay sell them but any one better for the $$$. Still fits my butt so I just get on and ride.

Exactly! Tractor looks like it just rolled out of the show room. I sure hope they come through on warranty.

If they don't come through for you check out the site below. They sell a high back like is on the X590 for a lot less than the OEM seat. I've heard reports that the vinyl is better on these as well. When I replace my X500 seat this is where I'm getting mine.

Thanks. I’ll post when I hear back from Deere

Well guys, just got a call from dealer today. They said it wasn’t covered. I’ll try calling Deere corporate. If that don’t work, I’ll file a complaint with the Attorney General’s office. This is clearly a defect in materials.

Sorry your dealer isn't doing the right thing. Good idea about contacting JD Corporate. They need to know about dealers like that. Please keep us posted on your progress and Good Luck!

Just got a reply from JD about an email I sent them about my seat. Tried to attach the reply but don't know how. Basiclly they told me to talk to my dealer and that they use the best material they can get. We all know this is BS.Maybe if all the deere people on this forum sent them an email they might get the message but I doubt it. Jd321i hope you get a new seat.
