    I love the design and the way it operates but Im picky about cut quality. If you do a search you will find that every thread on Wrights turns into a discussion on what blades to use, what deck angle for best cut, and on and on. That means it doesnt cut real well. I found that it leaves stragglers in tall grass and even after a second pass. I looked and looked at the cut left by the Wrights I demoed because I wanted a Wright really bad. I couldnt live with the cut.

    They are very heavy for their size, and the weight is spread over a very small surface area. Not a "turf" machine. Having said that, you cant beat the price and they will cut anything anywhere.
