They are manufactured just 20 minutes up the road from me. There are a ton of wright standers around here. I have never seen the wright ZTR ever. Not in a dealer and not out in the field. From what I have seen from other wright users I have not been super impressed with the cut quality. I would take a bobcat any day of the week over a wright if those were my two choices. Bobcat has a VERY good cutting deck design.
Cutting decks arent a big issue here. I have never had a complaint on any of the machines we sell or really anyone elses commercial machines about the cutting deck. We sell Bobcat, Wright, Ferris and Toro LCE. I see bad reviews on here all the time about the Wright and Old Ferris decks. Then I ask my customers about it and nothing... Just recently had one telling me how great his old Ferris DD cuts compared to all his newer machines.
