    I see that Lowes has one made of plastic with a tractor shaped seat. (limit 300 lbs.)I can't do a lot of bending (get light-headed) or squatting like I did when younger. Wondering who has used one and where you got it.

    I just got one and just love it! Great for hand weeding (I plant intensively). I love having a place for my tools on the side and a water bottle at the ready! Well worth the money.

    Can you tell us where you bought it? I want to get something that will work. Sitting on a 5 gallon bucket hurts, maybe I could put a padded seat on it. That's a thought. :baby04:

    It came from Lowes. I think it was around 30$. They did not have them at walmart when I checked.

    We bought 1 garden seat from Harbor freight last year and love it works great for picking beans. Its all metal with neumatic tires and has a swivel seat plus has a tray for holding small hand tools etc. This one cost $49.00 and was worth every penny.

    That's the kind I want, but the only one I've seen was in a gardening catalog listed for $70! I can't use a garden kneeler due to arthritis in my knees. Right now hubby has log sections at each bed for me to sit on, but it sure gets tiring moving those heavy pieces of log down the beds!

    STILL AVAILABLE AT HARBOR FREIGHT!

    I just went to www.harborfreight.com to see if the garden seat was still available. It was! I also found a bunch of discount codes to use with my order, plus shipping was only $8.99. Thanks circlevranch:goodjob:

    You will love it and you will be surprised how much you use it...I put mine in the middle of the rows and just scoot it along with me...My husband ordered mine from Home Depot or perhaps Lowes but one of the two ...I love it...

    I saw a seat at two different yard sales, I don't know if they were made for the garden or not. I wish I would have gotten one.

    They were a small rectangle bench type seat with a sturdy plastic seat that swivaled.

    I looove my sit and scoot, use it for everything, getting clothes out of my front load washer, sitting and painting, sitting in front of the rabbits cages playing with the babies, and a thousand other uses. Mines fairly small, all plastic, lid lifts for storage, came from Walmart but it was a gift. I could use about 5 of them, put them all over the house instead of dragging the one. Seen larger ones at Home Despot for about 30 bucks. It sure does save on your legs and back and feet.
