Wright Walk-Behinds- Are they any good?

I have had experience with both Exmark, Deere, and Skag, but not with Wright.

I am looking at a 36 walk-behind that is almost too good of deal to pass up, but I know nothing about them so here I need some advice.

1. Are they built to the same level as a Skag, exmark, hustler, you get the picture?

2. Do they stripe decent?

3. Are the hydraulics decent?

4. Would you buy one over a more established brand if you could get it at cost?

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Do you find the handle bars to be better than the pistol grip or new style grips that exmark has??

Have you had experience with other brands as well?

the handle bars are very easy to learn and are user friendly. the ecs on the exmarks are very nice also. i cannot give any usefull info. on the other brands. you have to keep both hands on the bars at all times. i am very well satisified with mine.

wright makes an awesome walk behind, i have the 48" velke, used it for two seasons only problem was the hydro hose leaking which was covered by dealer.
besides that its made very well 7gauge deck, built in velke, sealed bearings..
you wont be dissapointed.
