New Mower purchase

Went to a "Field Day" type event today sponsored by a local dealer. We were given the opportunity to demo mowers from 3 different brands, Exmark, Wright, and Husqvarna.

Not too many people demoed the Husky. More were demoing the exmark than the Wrights. Anyway, at the same event last year, I walked (rode, actually) away with a 25 hp kawi powered 52 inch Wright Stander.

I needed a new mower due to growth and almost bought the exact same mower....that is until I demoed the new Wright ZTR mower. That thing is FAST FAST FAST. Good cut too. I bought the Demo with 3 hours on it. Same deck as the stander and the same engine too. High back seat with arm rests. Adjustable wheel base for when adding bagger. Got it for just a little bit more than the retail for a new stander.

Im going to see if I can break it in tomorrow....LOL

Sweet, keep us up on details of how it performs and such. There hasn't been much info on here about it. And we'd sure love pics or even vids.

I'll be more than happy to provide pictures, but I didn't get it home until after dark. I will take some tomorrow.

Hey J- you forgot to tell the "rest of the story" you bought the mower but when I tried to get you to add a couple of Redmax 8001's to YOUR acct for me to have you didn't follow through on that part


It was a FAST, FAST mower. Congrads!
