    I have had a few problems with my 2002 Wright Stander 48" 17hp. dispersing grass .To make a long story short I seem to have figured out that the engine speed needs to be set with the blades on. Does anyone know or recommend what the speed should be set at?

    I always run my Wright Stander at full throttle.

    First, youll need to get a tachometer. Tinytach is a good one as is Sendeck. To answer your question, the RPMs are set to max out at 3750 under load. That way i can vary the engine speed from normal, 3600, under normal conditions upwards depending on what the conditions warant. Only way to do that is with a tach, so get one.

    What? I'm not real sure what you've said.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything...just want to know what you're talking about?

    this year is my first with the tiny tach brand. many here rave about them, but i dont see any difference between it and my sendecks. Both are similarly priced, $40, so go with whatever your dealer has.
