This is listed as for a Ford or similar small farm tractor.

Will it fit a garden tractor like my David Bradley or Penfield? They use pan seats that are large but I don't know if they are the same size as a farm tractor seat. The 1's on the 2 tractors here are lot different.

All the ones I've used were somewhat universal fit. they got a drawstring on the bottom side to cinch it up tight.

I would think it will fit OK.

There seems to be two different sizes of seat cushions. I bought one a couple of years back and it was to small for my Lawnboy loafer seat. I ended up laying it on top of the seat and then using the old cushion over it. I would send a message to the ebay seller and ask for dimensions.

I bought an orange and white for my Kubota B6000. IIRC the seat is ~19 inches wide. It's waaay too big and you can't tighten it and it flops all over.

edit:
And the foam is thin and weak. After sitting on it for five minutes it feels like you're sitting on the steel seat.

Well I ask the vender and this was the response.

"These are advertised by the manufacturer to fit 19Ē pan seats. These are an economical and universal solution because pan seat depth and edge thickness varies depending on who made them. They do fit snug on the common 19Ē seats we sell. Some other covers are cut to fit the curves better. These come flat but will form and take shape after some use. Iíve had one return out of about 200 or so. I hope this helps. If you want something specific and itís not listed I can always help you find it. "

So I might try 1 as I have plenty of seats I can put it on if it don't do right on the Penfield.I use a chain wallet and it has already scratched the seat on the Panzer no more than I have drove it around,and I want this Penfield to look decent and not skint up.
