    Hey guys i was wondering how the wright standers do on hills and also i was wondering if anyone has tried the sentar. I havent heard much about this mower on here but it looks pretty neat. Just wanted some professional insight

    They are fantastic, well built and designed mowers. The best thing to do is to demo one for a day or two, and see how it will fit into your operation. I love ours, and you will find many of the other Wright supporters here tell you the same thing.

    How is the unit for loading it onto a trailer, I wondered if it would drag since you can't lift the deck. And what about low tree branches, is that a problem?

    The stander is insane on hills. Nothing will come close to it on hills (except the hustler hillsider but that 6x6 wheel drive) I go several jobs because I had the only machine could cut the hill.

    They stripes well on most grasses. But I built striping kits for mine. So I can stripe anything.

    As for the trailers. Just lean back a little and grab the controls to pull a wheelie. So you can clear the trailer ramp. Or anything else in the way.

    The sentar is almost as insane on hills. Cuts a lot faster and more powerful. I like mine. But its for sale so I can replace it with a 52" model. So every machine in the fleet is the same.

    I love my standers. I am one of their biggest fans (just ask impact or anybody else that knows me) I will kept buying them.

    52" 19hp or 23hp is a good choice. The 52" 25hp is the baddest of the standers.

    And as far as the fixed decks, I spent an average of 750.00 extra on each WB for adjustable decks...which we rarely used. We haven't had the need to change the cutting heights , so the fixed deck is no problem. We run single Raptor blades with full baffle mulch kits, and they cut extremely well and stripe well too..I am however looking into an aftermarket stripe roller or if Wil would share some ideas..lol...from his design. I have put ours in some really steep inclines with no thoughts of losing it, and have gained a few new accounts this year simply because the Stander is the perfect machine around here on hilly ground.

    the deck on the stander isnt adjustable at all? I have a 36 inch encore and it has washers on the front casters that adjust height. I thought i saw the standers with these washers?

    Our advice is the same as everyone else's...try one out. They are extremely versatile mowers with great benefits. We love them for their ability to cut fast, cut well, and most importantly handle leaves well. We have a lot of leaves to deal with and this mower is incredible when it comes to handling them. Good luck.

    19hp is enough. But for $200 more get a 23hp. You never will run out of power. I got almost every engine hp you can get on the stander. The 23hp is the best deal for power to price. I just got the 25hp because of the more power is better syndrome.

    You can adjust the deck by moving the spacers on the front casters like a walkbehind does.

    Bill you will get to see a kit soon enough. I am making one for you.
