    I am wondering if Wright is still planning to make the Sport X model, and if so will there be a 61" model? And what is the time frame to the dealers.
    I really like my Sentar Sport, but would also like one with a little more speed, 20" tires,and a 61" deck.

    WJC,

    The Sport X is currently being worked on and the 61" model is scheduled for release in the first week of April.

    Are they planning to stop making the regular Sentar sport and RH models? Also how will these new Sport X models compare to a regular Sentar? Seems a bit silly to have 3 models of Sentar and 3 adjustable deck standers.

    pugs,

    The Sentar Sport and Stander RH will continue to be made, pricing will be the difference between the adjustable deck mowers, with each model being a step up from the next. The full size Sentar is no longer being produced but it is the mower the Sport X has been modeled after during its developement.

    Best Regards

    Are you planning upon making a Sentar or Sport on the ZK frame, so that larger engines and decks and groundspeed will be available?

    olde blue,

    We have actually prototyped a sit down ZK, an actual production version would require significant changes for the dynamics to be correct. If it is taken further through the developement process it would be atleast a year before it would be released.

    How are you guys doing on the Sport X, It's June now and I don't see anything on the website about them and the dealer knows nothing about them. If you have produced any, can I see some pictures? Thanks

    The Sport X is our newest model and we've just begun producing it. We are also in the process of changing our website over (literally as we speak). So I ask for your patience as we make this switch. If you'd like to demo a Sport X in the meantime, I'd be happy to help make those arrangements. Just let me know!

    Thanks!

    Best regards,

    I would like to demo a 61". Right now we're not getting any rain and temps are above average so the grass isnt growing much at all, so if there was one available I don't think it would tell me what I need to know. Is it going to be very similar to the stander x but with a seat and different positioning of the quad levers, or a much different machine altogether?
