    I would like to hear from people who have run the Wright 32 compaired to scag, exmark, ect.
    1. How much more productive is the Wright
    2. Time saving
    3. Energy saving for a solo operator ( after 10 to 12 yards walking behind my 32 I'm pretty tired)
    4. Could you add a few more yards a day with this machine

    Any other positive and negative things about the Wright 32 that would justify the purchase of it. Being 1500 to 2000 more then most walk behinds..

    Thanks,
    LFLC

    The Stander wins on ALL points. Whether it's worth the "extra" cost is your call; how many lawns will you be using it on?

    The 32 has pretty narrow tires on some units and complaints are that you see ruts over long haul....the 36" sentar is a little better.

    ed2hess, Can you get a Wright 36 in a 36" gate? It's overall width is greater then 36", but can you angle it through some way?

    Thanks

    My 34" Everride Scoprion FX has some small drive tires and heavy weights in the back for traction, and I did some moist yards today and it didn't rut at all.

    Let a few pds of air out of the tires on the 32. The machine is a little beast. You have to get used to the controls not to rut a lawn. The stander is more productive. Less operator fatigue. Ive used both and am a whole lot less tired at the end of a day. Especially when its very hot out. The stander will cost alot more.

    I agree, small standers are unbeatable when it comes to productivity!

    The 32 Stander will save you 25 to 40% in cutting time. It is not what the machine costs, it is what it will save you during the life of the mower. The savings in time will quickly pay for the mower, not to mention less wear and tear on your knees, hips, and feet.
    As for rutting, be sure to check your tire pressure. The tire are a little thin to accomodate the with of the mower and the zero turn components. The tire presure should be under 16 psi. This gives you a little floatation on the tires and usually stops any rut problems. Also mow the lawns in a different pattern each time.

    I never measured it....but it goes thru the same gates that scag and snapper 36" goes thru.....and I am pretty sure the gates are around 36". Sorry I don't have the unit close to make measurement.
