What I did to all our MaxII's is separate the seat from the floor.
Use a straight edge and a razor knife or saws-all and cut the floor about 1" above the shifter slot.
You can get a small piece of aluminum angle and rivet it on to the floor that you just cut.
That will make the back of the floor rigid and keep it straight.
Then you can just pick the seat up if you need to get to the battery or adjust the jackshaft chains.
The floor will be easy to get out because you wont have to fight the weight of the seat.
That is what I was going to do next on mine. The new seat is tuff to lift out with the roll cage !  iagree ;)

Im with whipper on this one. If a Max II comes in with the floor and seat still attached I ask the customer if they want it cut. I usually cut about an inch behind the front edge of the seat. This leaves a rolled edge on floor pan that may not need additional support. I stick a putty knife between the plastic and seat fabric and cut on the seat backing board with utility knife. One of the best things you can do to a max II.

When I had a max 2 I split the floor pan into 2 pieces about mid way through the shifter hole. Much easier to get in and out that way

Running parallel to the wheels or perpendicular to them?
Perpendicular to them,where your shifter lever is I cut across about the middle of that slot. Seat lifted out and then I took the rest of the floor pan out. Id post a pic but I sold all 3 max machines.
Good luck

When I built my Hustler, it came with no floorboards.  My neighbor is an HVAC guy, so I got an old AC unit carcass and used the outer sheet metal to make the floorboards.  I formed them with nothing more than a hammer, pliers, and a good sturdy table edge.  They aren't pretty, but a little outdoor carpet took care of that.  They work perfectly.

My sheet metal guy is an HVAC guy. He forms a lot of sheet for outdoor furniture I make. So cheap and always perfectly square with great tacks. Im pretty certain I could take him in the dimensions and he could have it done in no time. The problem is galvanized. Dont know if you can do bedliner on it or not.

For what type of machine?  I am going to pay attention to this thread also, for a similar issue. Thanks for putting the question out there.

Whos replaced their floorboard area, and what did you use?  Rethinking things, the plastic floor pan is a pain in the neck to pull in and out. I have a great sheet metal guy who bends galvanized for me and is cheap. I was thinking of a two piece or something easier to remove.
