32" Wright Stander Users: Rutting Issues?

A recent move to S. TX has prompted the search for a new 32" mower as I am concerned the Walker and Honda 21 will not fit well in my new business model.

For owners of the 32" Wright, what are your major issues and problems?

My main concern is ~800 lbs. on small tires causing rutting issues. Is this warranted? How does this machine mulch Floritam?

FWIW, I am also looking into the 32" Toro T-bar, belt drive.

You shouldn't have rutting problems as long as you change up directions and don't mow when the ground is saturated. Some of the mower out there are 1500+ lbs.

I have a 36" Wright and i do notice some rutting when the ground is soft. I just change up my pattern to prevent the ruts from getting worn in deep. Any type of mower is going to create rutting if you use the same cutting patterns. When i first got my walkbehind i noticed it was rutting during the spring. However once the ground dried up in the middle of the summer it stopped.

I run a 32 stander and it's just like any other mower. If the ground is very saturated it will rut. But in most conditions it is just fine. It's a great mower.

WE RUN A 36 " sentar....great machine...very versatile.......yes it can leave ruts on wet turf but so can any other machine......just make sure as mentioned above change mowing direction so your not cutting the same way everytime....you should anyway to create a thicker looking lawn.
