    Greetings. Is Wright in discussion with any St. Louis area dealers to pick up the line now that Milbradt Lawn Equipment has dropped it? For a while, Harvester Small Engine of St. Charles was listed on Wright's website as a dealer, but now they are not.

    Good Morning Old Blue!

    What's your zip code? I'll check with the distributor in your area to see what their prospects are.

    Best regards,

    Wright Manufacturing

    Wow this affects me greatly...I have 3 Standers, I used to go to Harvester Small Engine, then they dropped the line...I live in Past Wentzville, MO so Milbradt was way too far but I did it cause I had to...now they dropped the line? I did not know that...Please try for a dealer in St. Charles County. As far as I know I have the most Wright equipment in the area it would be nice to not have to drive over an hour...

    Some dealers are...Bill's Place is St. Peters, Bill's Service Center in O'fallon, Scott's Power Equipment in Wentzville AND St. Louis (this is the closest one to me and they are in the city so I think this is the ideal choice).

    Wright Commercial:

    Thank-you for your reply. My zip code is 63114 (I'm only a few blocks from Scott's Power Equipment on Trenton and Warson). When I checked your website last week, the nearest dealer was listed as Springfield, IL or Columbia, MO (over 80 miles away). In the spring, Harvester Small Engine and Mildbradt Lawn Equipment were listed as dealers.

    Ric3077:

    I didn't know Scott's opened up a branch in Wentzville. They were the only Wright dealer when I purchased my first Stander (Outdoor Power Equipment of Brentwood had just dropped the line about 2005). They never stocked any mowers or parts in the northwest St. Louis County location; I ordered parts in 2006 and 2007 from them; when Mildbradt picked up the line in 2008, I asked Scott's about it. They said I was the only person to buy any Wright parts in the last couple of years, and they suggested I go to Mildbradt for parts thereafter.

    It still does not list a dealer in the ST Louis area.

    I want to buy one with the seasonal buyers discount
    but I don't want to go 100 miles oneway to get a small repair or any warranty covered.

    Do any of you know any new info?

    Thank You
