They sent me one also and it has been welded on for months.
The thick lush green SA getting cut at 4" and above is ok but the bermuda and thin stuff at 2" is unbearable..

I am also looking at the Scag V Ride. The Toro dealer also sells Scag and he said both have been good machines but he personally like the Scag better. He said he felt the Scag was built a little better. He did say the Toro is a better machine if you ever want to walk behind it. I think I will end up with either the Scag or Toro as the Wright dealer is just to far away. I looked at the Gravely machine but they just didn't interest me at all. They are a nice looking machine though. Dealer is supposed to get me demos of both the Toro and Scag so which ever one performs better I will end up with.

Redsox4life does your Kubota leave clumps right along the discharge opening? Mine blows the grass out well but leaves clumps that seem like they don't get broke up before they exit the deck. It is of course worse when the grass is wet or thicker but it even does it sometimes when the grass isn't that tall. I am going to get some G6 blades for it so that may solve the problem but I don't think it will.!

I've been running wrights since I started 12 years ago. I am now using the 52x I have always like these mowers and the x with the new deck is great in wet or dry. They also bag wicked awesome to bad the grass catcher is so small.

As far as the build goes, I say the wright is built better and holds a hill better but id say the scag has a lot better ride (comfort, not hill side stability).

Very interesting. I have the 15hp and it seems like we aren't seeing much of a difference....I though the bigger motor would surely help out.....Wright needs to put the aero core deck on the small machines.

In dry conditions I love the cut of the kubota, have no clumping issues at all.... assuming the grass isnt as tall as a hayfield. In wet conditions itll clump a bit, but much less than the grandstand.

Do you still have the rubber discharge guard on your mower? Maybe try taking that off?

Yes that was removed because I have the bagger for it. I have tried taking that small baffle right on the inside of the discharge off to see if that would help and it did some but it still leaves these clumps right outside the discharge. I think it just falls out rather than being blown out like it is supposed to.
