  1. For those of you who have Wright Standers, when you have the blades engaged and you step off of the mower; does the mower die or do the blades just stop turning?

    I have a 36” that keeps running, but the blades stop when I get off of it. Then when I get back on, the blades engage by themselves. Just wondering if that’s normal.

    I don’t think that is normal. Mine will die if I jump off while the blades are engaged and will not restart until I disengage the blades.

    Mine use to die before I clamped it down so It didnt work. Hit a big bump and it would kill spark for a second and dump raw fuel in the engine. 1 min fix Great mower:D

    Blue,

    The entire unit should die - engine & all if safety switch is properly wired.

    I just got a John Deere Quicktrak and the blades will stop but the motor will stay running. Step back on and the blades will start again.

    On the Wright Stander if the blades are engaged both the engine and the blades stop and you have to re-start the engine. Nice safety feature if you get into trouble on a hill or something. All you do is jump off and the mower stops.
     
  7. Sounds like I have a defective mower, or at least the safety. Of course when I showed the dealer, the thought I had monkey'd with it.
