Honestly its not a huge difference. The floating still scalps but just not as much. Wright is done making the fixed deck anyway so it is what it is.besides the convenience in cutting height changes, how do the fixed deck vs floating decks perform?
I agree with all that. My dealer told me there just wasnt a big enough asking for them and the rapid heights are only a few hundred more. Either way though i think all wrights are super easy to work on in the fieldkind of sad to see them go... i kind of like the old wright stander we have in shop because its more compact, easier to get into tighter spaces, stuff like that. also easier to access belts and grease points.
This makes me miss my old 52” wright stander. What a nimble machine.
