    Which high lifts from Oregon do you use on your Wright stander?

    these are 18" blades for 52" stander.

    91-622 high lift 250 width
    91-623 extreme high lift....300 width
    or other?

    (numbers are Oregon's part numbers)

    I'll help a little.....we couldn't get our 36" to cut right until we put the Scag flat bade on....they are sharpened almost to the center. That is what Wright advised us to do....most of our cuts are on lawns without a lot of weeds.

    Do you know the part#? Oregon blade?
    Was the deck pitched right?

    The blades that come with the stander are still considered "hi lift" so everyone that says they switched out the blades that came with their stander.....what did you switch to?
    Manufacturer of blade and part number please.

    I bought scags high lift blades. they work better than wrights standard blade but definitely load the motor a little more

    Apparently the Wrights cut just doesnt get it heh? I love those mowers but if the cut isnt right, I cant buy one.

    Are you still running doubles (gator/hi) with the baffle? Oregon 91-622's with 90-418's? How many spacers above the blades? What is the height from the ground to the cut tip of the bottom blade in front and in rear?

    We have had the same problem this year with our "Wright" blades for our 52" Standers. I found out that the "wings" on the Oregon blades are getting shorter every year thus creating less lift and vacuum. I accidentally found a Skag blade that has a longer "wing" on it and it works great. Better stripe,lift and vacuum. Part number#482878.
