    My wright stanger 48" does a terrible job sucking up leaves in the fall. It leaves rows of leaves on the bagger side on every row. My belt driven scag gets every single leaf, no problem. Any suggestions?

    I didn't know Stander was meant to bag.......since those blades are right at the bottom edge of the deck. I would try some high lift blades?

    Use the right tool for the right job.

    We actually put our scag blades on the stander and it didn't do any better, so maybe i will try some high lift blades. Its such a pain in the ass to have to double cut the lawns just to get all the leaves.

    Actually Wright don't have any unique blades so we use Scag blades. I got some high lift blades for our Scag Tiger and they pulled the engine down so much I couldn't use them, but this 17hp should have plenty power. We mulch with the outlet closed on all our units. Wright has been pretty responsive to us maybe ask dealer to get with them.

    Don't get me wrong, I love those machines GREAT ON CUTTING GRASS just not leaves.

    Try a gator type blade, Hi-Lifts will only aggravate the blow-out problem on the discharge side.
