Wright stander vs Stander RH

Went to my wright dealer today and looked at some of the 36" models he's got. He has a 36" RH for 3995, with 130 hours on it (used) and a new 36" wright fixed deck that I forgot to ask the price of. Anyways, what I am specifically looking for are deck cuts, which is better, is it the same deck, etc... And also, hill comparing. I would have to guess the fixed deck holds better, but is an RH model still better than other standon mowers?

Anything else, positive or negative about either, especially would like feedback from someone with a 36" RH. I really have been spoiled with easy height adjustments I guess! How would you change the spacers quickly on a trailer when you can't lift the mower??

I have... had... same question.

Called up Wright and asked them. Very short answer is the RH in the 36" CANNOT... DOES NOT... handle as well as the fixed on hills. Cut quality did not get a feeling one way or the other from them.

I love my 36 fixed and really want a RH.... but only if the cut will be the same or better. Hills not that much of an issue for me. SURE wish I could demo one for a day, just no dealers within 80 miles. Let us know what you decide!

I think I'm going to set up a demo for Wednesday on the RH.

there a few things that i looked at when i bought my stander it was between the 36 and the 36rh. How many yards do you cut on different heights. do i really want to have to change spacers or just move a lever. i never demo the 36 but the cut quality on my 36rh is good and it will hold hill decently

Schnabel,

My understanding is the RH has smaller tires. This leads to a tendency to rut and spin in wet conditions. The RH also does a poorer job on hills.

You can look at all the specs on their website... Eliminates much confusion and misunderstandings.

Do not hesitate to give them a phone call. I have always been able to speak promptly with a decent person that could answer my questions, and i never thought they were jerking me.
