    I'm considering a purchase of a 52 23hp stander. It's the unit without the quick adjust height with a couple hundred hours on it.

    So my questions...

    How long does it take to change the deck height on these units?

    How tough is it to change blades, scrape the deck etc? One thing (of the many) I like about a w/b is it is so easy to prop the front end up and change blades...

    Anyone know the length (front to rear) of this unit? I'm trying to figure out how much room it would take on my trailer.

    Thanks in advance...:waving:

    I also forgot to ask...

    Being a fixed deck, do you have a lot of issues with scalping? I've got some a couple seriously bumpy yards and I would think scalping would be a problem...

    I rarely have problems with scalping, changing the cutting height is pretty muck like changing it on a walkbehind, its not the easiest thing but you don't need a degree in science to do it. Go on Wright's website to get the overall length, I think its about the same as a walkbehind, but I'm not sure. How much are they asking for it?

    Scalping is very minimal and I think the overall frame length is like 59".

    I have the 52/23. It scalps every now and then, but if you are careful, you will be ok. it is shorter than a walk behind. Very easy to manuver. Height changes are typical for a fixed deck (spacers on front casters and blade spacers.) I use a jungle jack for changing blades and installing the mulch kit.

    Get a jungle jack, makes life easy and safe when changing blades.

    takes about 30 minutes to change the height, got to unbolt the rear wheel motors and then move the spacers around on the fron casters.

    I've got a 48" w/rapid height and it only takes about 2 seconds (if that) to change height. Only been using it about a week so cant answer scalping, blade change questions.

    No way... my dealer told me that Wright doesn't make a 48" deck now. I asked him about it on a couple different occations. Weird

    bought it in January. Seems like the guys who sell wright around here didnt know much about them either. The dealer I went with is great though.
