Why are Wrights so heavy?

I've really been thinking about the 32" velke mower from wright. It just seems like it would be perfect for my residentials and really increase productivity. My one concern and the reason I dont have one is because of the weight and the bad rep for ruts.

In reading some other posts on here I read that dry weight was about 530 lbs. I just wanted to verify that and ask what makes them so heavy.
If thats true, then that little machine is about twice as heavy as my big snapper 36 dual hydro.

Thanks.

Its a hydro. Current specs on a snapper 36" dual hydro say 550lbs dry weight. Also just checked on something I am more familiar with and a Bobcat 36" hydro is 524lbs.

I doubt you will find a dual hydro 32-36" machine that is hugely different in weight.
