Height adjustments for 2010 wright stander

I have a 2010 23 hp Kawasaki RS. The problems I have are with mowing height. Seems to be impossible to cut anything lower than 3" unless deck is pitched ridiculously forward. With blade spacers as low as possible and correct deck placement it won't go lower. I can lower the front castor arms, but that will cause a drag in the deck. Had my dealer look at it quick and he was totally perplexed also. Any thoughts?
Other than this I like the new design

dmk395,

Your caster yoke should be set up with 1 c-spacer and 6 washers underneath the caster arm tube. The washers allow more finer tuning but require the yoke to be dropped to make the change. Did you try this or just moving the c-spacer?

Best Regards
Wright Mfg.

If you drop the yoke you hit sprinkler heads etc. The old style machines didn't have this problem.

I'm really glad I found this thread, I'm going to call you guys tomorrow. I just bought a 36" Stander and am having serious problems with the cutting height too. I have the c-spacers dropped as much as I can, but I haven't adjusted the arms (casters?) that come off from the deck for the wheels.

I noticed my deck is tilted forward and so the blades aren't cutting evenly and its leaving unever cuts in the lawns. I have had customer complaints and am perplexed on how to fix this. I've resolved to just using my old Exmark walk behind for the rest of the week, but I've grown so much this year from last that this takes way too much time. Please help me!

If I drop the caster yoke, the sprinkler heads get nailed etc. Here is what works though. Let your tires wear down a bit, then let a little air out of them. Have been cutting great like this. Love the machine, but Wright should def. look into this. My dealer was perplexed but he even couldn't figure it out!

I figured out I could cut down to 2in by lowering the height of the blades. I didn't realize that the blades themselves can be adjusted from the deck. There are six 1/4in washers with the long shaft that holds the blades up and runs through the fly wheels.

I cut at 2.5in here in the spring by lifting it with only 1 C-spacer, keeping the yoke in the middle setting, and keeping 5 washers between the blades and the deck. It cuts smooth and very clean cut looking now.
