Well I have had the mower since June and have put 200hrs on it so I figure its time for a review.I have had and still have an 08 stander RH 48"
The mower I got in June is the Stander X 28". The dealer I went too is a newer dealer here, which is nice because there are alot of Wrights ran in this area and only 2-3 dealers one of which closed up last year. My dealer is A+++ the great me by name every time I walk in! I was one of the first if not the first to get the stander X 48" in my area. I paid $8600 which is a bit high but I feel well worth it.
Its obvious Wright listened to their customers because they changed everything people dislike about the old RH's. The X is a bigger build overall bigger tires which are a huge plus, battery is moved, spring platform, and a bigger Kawasaki engine! My RH always did good on hills but the X does even better! The X is faster and the bigger cushion provides more comfort.
Many people question about these are the deck. With my RH I never had too many problems besides some clumping when mowing wet grass. With the X I can assure you the new deck design is awesome! Perfect cut and hardly every leaves clumps. The floating deck is so much nicer going over objects and rough terrain.
My 3 cons are one the engine being mounted on the floating deck it tends to bounce alot but as time went on I got used to it. When I first got the machine when you shut it off it was back firing. Dealer told me to shut it off at half throttle and I havent had a problem with that since. Last is the most annoying the controls are more touchy and tend to stick making it harder to keep straight lines especially in reverse it has been like this since day one and never loosened up. I heard its just an adjustment from one person but have yet to figure that out so if anyone knows let me know!
Overall this has been the best mower I have ever owned and will buy another when the time comes!
