I like the low back. I have a high back and my grandson likes it better. it will just come down to your personal preference. they both look good.
when it's hot, the high back makes my tractor sweaty. :)

hhmm i didn't think about the sweaty high back. i'll have to think about that.
all i do is plow (grader or snowblade).
just trying to get it set up so it's as comfortable as i can.
i also need to find a 16hp muffler. you can see it has i think an 8hp muffler on it now and it has an interior rattle (i think the baffle came loose) that drives me nuts lol.

Aesthetically speaking, I like the traditional look of the low back much better, betcha it's a pretty comfy ride with the spring mounts too. Plus...those high back seats always seem to get in the way of my running leap into the saddle. :)

when i got the tractor it had the springs mounted backwards.
i turned them around and i'll try it like that and see how it feels.
if i like it i'll ditch the high back.

I prefer the look of the lower seat. My only other comments would be a high seatback won't let you lean back for traction either. It does look comfortable though.

well it's gonna be the low back.
i switched the springs in the right direction,bolted it down and it made a vast improvement.
now it has the spring cushion like it's supposed to.
plus like casualobserver said i can lean back if i need more traction.
plus it's a new seat.

Seat problems; high or low back, there just isn't enough spring or travel in standard springs
to suit my back. I have replaced the seat with a u-spring--about six inches between
arms--attached to a perforated steel implement seat (no back) and enjoy the baby buggy
ride. Suitable springs of this type are usually from JD's and are sold in pairs commonly
on EB. One spring is just right for me (145 lbs.)

I like the high back for a nice change the way you have it. If you were doing a resto, I'd say the low.

I like the high backs. I bought a real nice adj. seat that has good support and it is the best $100 I ever spent! No more back aches after mowing or feelling every little bump! :thumbs:

I prefer the high back myself on a working tractor and if it has armrests, I'm really happy. If you are building fancy show tractors then you go with the original style. Who says you can't lean back with the high back seat? I always do.

I would like to say that my favorite seat is a mid back seat. Has enough support and I can lean back also. I know this is not what you have to chose from, but that is my choice. High backs are nice, but they do get quite warm in the summer months.

without a shadow of dougbt it would be the Low back for me even though i have back troubles i still prefer the comfort & look that it gives me
Just my opinion
one thing i really dont like to see is the seats that are taken out of cars and then put on the tractors ,that looks real awful
