I have a 2009 36" Stander with just over 600 hours on it. Last year the deck started cracking, one piece of it broke completely off (top skirt that runs around belt area.) It also started cracking where the castors mount to the deck and on several of the welds. I took it to Lawn and Leisure in Lees Summit, Mo. where I had purchased it new in 2009. They took pictures and sent it off to Wright to see if they would cover it, since the machine was just out of warranty. Wright covered it and sent a new one out, it was the wrong deck, so I had to wait for another one. In the end, I got a new deck and all was good, until yesterday when I noticed this deck was now cracking and falling apart in the exact same way as the original. I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow so they can take pictures and find out about getting it replaced. Is there a problem with these decks or am I just that unlucky? Hope you all replace it...with something that will last more than half a season.
