    I'm considering this mower but there are a few concerns I have about it. I'm afraid that the 8" wide tires are too narrow and may create rutting issues. Also, I have read reviews on this website that say the cut quality is not as good as other stand on mowers like the grandstand, vantage, and v-ride. My last concern is comfort. Does the 42" come with a suspension platform? If anyone can provide any input I would greatly appreciate it.
     
  2. Jville I know we both talked about this. I can tell you since I own a Toro with the turbo force deck that the cut quality of the wright is just as good as the toro. The biggest plus to wright machines IMO is the dependability and how they have very few problems. This mower is going to be my next purchase.

    yeah I know we discussed this and I really appreciate your opinion. I was actually just trying to get some other people's thoughts on this because I need more convincing

    Ariens zoom 42". It is a residential grade ztr. It was my first ztr and did well when I was starting out but now business is great and I need a commercial mower. My next mower will be a stand on because I don't want my back taking any abuse from a riding a ztr. I'd like to stay in the 42" range so I can fit through gates still. 42" is as big as I can go and still fit through all my gates. I don't want to go too small though. 36" would be a little small on a few big lawns I do. So my choices are basically wright stander 42" or toro grandstand 40". There aren't any other stand on mowers this size.
     
  6. Gotchya. I personally like stand on better than a traditional ztr. More compact. Also keep in mind wright has the seasonal buying. From end of October-early December you get 17% off msrp.

    To put it in perspective my 42" ariens ztr has 8.5" tires and weighs 440 pounds. The 42" wright stander rh has 8" tires and weighs 720 pounds. My ztr does a pretty good job of not rutting but I'm concerned because a machine that weighs 280 pounds more with narrower tires might

    My ztr at 64" long is actually more compact than most stand on mowers including the wright stander rh 42"
     
  9. Good points. Keep in mind though that on a ztr, you are sitting down so more weight is being put on the mower. With a stand up, less weight is being put on the mower.
