    this saturday at Frederick MD harry grove stadium, Wright manuf.

    co. is selling their sentars. I went to the plant where they produce

    these machines. They had alot of sentars & stand-up riders. Some

    didn't even have hrs. on them. They said dealers went out of

    business and they bought they're inventory back. They were

    adding oil coolers to them. I test rode 25 hpower, very fast,

    however the seat seemed like a ball buster. I don't know how

    well they cut, but they seemed pretty nice. Prices were from

    $ 3k to $ 5500. But I think I'll buy another lazer 27hp lcooled.

    Anyone have an sentar? Let us know what you think.

    The Sentar sucks!! Hits you in the "Sentar of your butt!!

    Buy another Lazer!!

    Wright is "selling off" their product direct at low prices because nobody wants it...plain and simple!!

    I just bought my second Sentar and think they are the best mower in my 20yrs of business. the last years model did have a hard seat and they redesigned it on this years model and added an oil cooler. the cutting quality is great.

    I'll have to agree with Lawn & Stump. I just bought this year's new improved Sentar with the 25 HP 61" cut. Still working on leashing this thing in, but comfort does not seem to be an issue. Have yet to see cut quality as grass is still growing in, but if it is anything like their stand-on, I have no worries.

    Echo rules...you speaking from first hand experience? Have you tried the new version? Any mower is going to have its kinks to work out the first couple years of production. I believe Wright has worked them out and some. You should go take a look at the new version before you bash it.

    I have been in this business for a long time as well, and it bothers me when I read posts from people bad mouthing products that they haven't even demoed. The sentar seat has been changed to a big cushy wide style. They also added a large spring to adjust tension on the seat. This is the best hill machine that I have ever used. Low center of gravity of the machine makes it very very good on hills. You owe it to yourself to demo this machine. This company is going places. The stander has been a great mower and now they have the sentar and a new walk behind. I have been watching this guy since he invented the stand on sulky (velke). Scapers in our area are swithching to wright's standers and sentars. Don't know about the new walk yet.

    Scraper, I own a Stander and really like it and I’m also considering the Sentar.

    I have a question though does the new model have the hand controls located higher (for standing) than the previous model? Seems like I heard a rumor about that, but don’t know if it’s true or not.

    Tidy cut, yes the control frame is higher now. I heard that tall users asked wright to raise the frame so it would be more comfortable. I noticed it when I saw the 2003 model at my dealer. They also made a protective cover for the front caster bearing cap. I also heard that it is faster than last year.

    Excellent, thanks for the reply Buba. The last time I was at my dealer I didn’t see the new model - guess I need to stop in and look.

    I see Bubba beat me to the punch. LOL My only problem now is with the kill switch on the foot plate. Seems like the way I stand, when I bounce my feet lift a bit and kill the engine. Not all the way mind you, but I can hear it shutting down. I found in sitting position If I wedge my feet underneath the shelf I can avoid this. Any Sentar users know if this is adjustable or if I am doing something wrong?
