    I see in the latest issue of Pro magazine you have a big two page center fold ad. It shows the Stander and the Sentar, but then has a teaser lableled "coming 2002!".

    Can ya tell us anything?

    Hmmm, maybe a Stander/Sentar with a flip up wing on it for gates??? (just a shot in the dark).

    Inquiring minds wanna know. Thanks

    If I told you, it wouldn't be a surprise!!

    I can't think of a hint that would satisfy you without giving it away. Sorry

    I will tell you that it won't make the Stander or Sentar obsolete.

    What a tease! Understood. When can we expect to see it?

    Yeah Jim, can ya at least give us an idea of when?
    I plan on buying a new mower very soon (before spring), and have a brand/model in mind already.
    I'd hate to buy it then regret it because you just came out with something that would have better fit my needs.
    So how about a time frame, I may be able to hold off.
    Thanks!

    I was at the Wright Factory last week and they wouldn't tell me either. Those guys can really keep a secret.

    the stander is obsolete because of the better performing sentar and the sentar is unusable because of the totally uncomfortable seat(over 500 hrs on my machine)

    I dont find it comforting for the rep to kind of aleniate his current customers by saying what they may own now will be "no good" because of a newer machine seems a little un kooth

    I have still have mostly good things to say about my sentar,wright and my local dealer

    A new machine doesn't have to be a redesign of an existing model. The Wright products are a result of thinking outside the box so don't expect any of their new products to compete against their existing products.
