Can anyone tell me who is the most
knowledgeable Wright dealer in the Dayton
Cincinnati area? And who is good with the Kawasaki's
finer points. I went to order a mulch kit for my
61 and want a HD air cleaner for the 23 Kawi. All the dealers I called
acted like I was speaking Arab. Maybe its because I bought
the machine used and have no purchasing history in this area.

Ended up having to call Wright to get the part # for the M kit
and had to spoon feed the dealer, Who to call, how to order etc...

MacLawn, or DMontgomery I am sure you know the best one in the area.
Please help.
Regards

Mike

Heil Brothers in Kettering are pretty good, and really the only Wright dealer I know of in Dayton proper......I know they are familiar with the HD filters....as far as the mulch kit I can't comment.....

Central Sales in Miamisburg carries Wright. Although I ended up buying nothing from them, if they carried Redmax or Skag, I'd have spent every dime with them. A guy with the last name of Cline was the single best person I talked to in any local store.

HAHA, no that isnt me. its from www.uglypeople.com from a looong time ago

here is your kaw part numbers... any kaw dealer will be able to get these kits and install them too. some kits require a new carb (reason for such high cost) others require the existing carb to be re-jetted. From my experience, the filter kit will add power. Afterall, they are increasing the carb/jets and the airflow...power is the result.

so apparenrtly this site wont accept xls files. ill see what i can do and report back tomorrow.

Hey Mac,

Used My new used Stander 61 yesterday.
Short wheelbase, large hydros, lots of tire
equals wild handling. I was mowing straight
at full speed by acre # 2 stopped tearing turf by acre # 3
and was still looking for things to run over by acre 5

If not for my KUNG-FU MONKEY GRIP, I would have been
thrown a couple of times.

I have to agree with some old post I read that
said the standers are the Porsche of lawn mowers.

Got it to go about 95% of where I could go with my
40" walk behind. Including some 45 deg mounds and ditches.

It did crop a little close on one crowned ditch transition.
I guess because of the 61" fixed deck

I am pleased.......

I still have it but have put it into production again this year. If the price is right... pm me if you want to talk.

attached is hopefully the filter sheet.

Thanks Mac

Should I expect to pay full msrp price
or do they typically give some discount ?

Really appreciate your help. I saw that sheet some were
but could not find it again. I think it was an old captdevo post
but I was not clear that these were Kawi #s or what.

I paid full retail. I dont bash people on their price and in return do not allow people to bash me on my prices. It goes both ways.

It was from Capt devo. Those are kaw part numbers... your dealer will likely be confused but be persistent. My dealer didnt know the kit was out for kaw but i insisted and they came through.

How far are u from cleveland? Are u still asking $4,000 or have u dropped it?
I am kinda new at this and for some reason cant figure out how to pm.

Mac,

I don't beat people up on price either
but most things are voluntarily sold for
less than MSRP. Sometimes you just need to
know the secret handshake or something.

I think Captdevo was selling these far below
the msrp, but that post was about 3 years old.

I E-mailed his Company web site and got no response.

Thanks again for the Help

Mike
