About ZTR Puffer

The ZTR Puffer emerged from an idea. An Ohioan desired to make his ride a bit more comfortable. Putting together a make shift frame, adding an airbag and a compressor to it he installed his idea on his 455 Deere tractor. Impressed enough with the way it worked that he invested in a patent for the unit and started his search for someone to collaborate with. Auglaize Erie Machine came into the picture in 2001 and the ET Air Ride company was born. ET Air Ride expanded on the idea and designed it specifically for commercial Zero Turn mowers calling the unit the EZ Terrain. By 2013 the unit had continually been developed and designed to fit a wide range of zero turn makes and models. ET Air Ride started to market the idea locally and renamed the product the ZTR Puffer. Since that time ZTR Puffer has started a developing dealer program and we have sold units as far as Australia and Canada.

Riding the puffer sure is smooth!…Love Puffin on the Z all day long…so smooth that popping off the biggest curb does not even wake you up.

Got the seat and just wanted to say it’s great. You can add the Badboy Outlaw mower to your list as it fit without modifications. Didn’t even need to splice in the power wire as it had a plug-in for it at the switch. Also didn’t need the safety switch extension as the one on the mower was plenty long…What a difference on my back and legs. Just put on my iPod and rode in comfort. Also finished 15 minutes faster…it was well worth the cost.
StephenClarksville, TN
I have been very happy with the unit AND with the customer support. I would buy another one in a minute. The difference was like night and day … without my Puffer I came in from mowing about 2 acres stiff and sore, with my back just aching. With it on, all is well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the ZTR Puffer come with a warranty?
Yes! The ZTR Puffer is backed by a one year, manufacturer defect warranty.
How far does the ZTR Puffer airbag raise the seat?
The ZTR Puffer airbag can raise the seat up to three inches depending on rider’s weight.
How long does it take to install the ZTR Puffer Air-Ride Seat Kit?
An hour or less.
May I add the Puffer to my existing mechanical seat suspension?

No, we do not recommend putting the Puffer on with another suspension. The old suspension must be removed and the Puffer put in it’s place.

What do I do if my mechanical suspension is built into the seat?

If your suspension is built into the seat, see if you can remove it and still bolt the seat to the Puffer.  If not you will need a different seat that can bolt to the Puffer. Call if you have any questions.
