Im getting ready to by a wright and I was wondering what are the pros and cons to a fixed vs a rapid height...I was told the quality of cut is much better with the fixed deck as opposed to the RH...but if I had to adjust the height on the fixed I got to do the spacers under the deck and this is a pain...anything else I should be aware of? Thanks...

Per my Dealer: The rapid height has smaller tires that are more likely to rut or slip on a hill. The RH has the worst traction of their models due to the tires.

You really need to mention what size machine you're wanting.

I have a 52" fixed deck Wright,I don't change the cutting height for anyone and I let them know it from the getgo,if they object I tell them to get someone else.If you set it to low, you scalp or get hung up on raised sidewalks tree roots etc,you'll end up with dull blades from all the stuff you hit.Summertime I raise it to 3" when I sharpen the blades,spring and fall 2.5".

I had a 48 RH. I bought it brand new, and sold it for quite a loss the same season. Traction was the reason.

You guys do know you can put wider tires on the RH right?
It made a huge improvement when I did.

Well to be honest I don't remember, I'll have to take a look. My dealer knew what to get me when I asked about it.
I do remember that I had to get new rims also though.

Yes I am very interested also on the tires. Did it eem like a big improvement? I love my RH and it gets decent traction but I would like some bigger ones

Our Wright RH has 18x8.00-10......you got those and it is still rutting? Now any mower that is 36" that you are going to ride is likely to rut when doing small yards where you have to run over the same trails. Solution WB and walk.
