Wright Manufacturing has introduced a new, compact Stander. The Stander Intensity, to be known as the Stander I, is equipped with the first 36-inch deck to incorporate Wright’s Aero Core technology. Operators will appreciate the deck’s improved airflow, cut quality and anti blow-out features, Wright says.
The floating deck on the Stander I tilts side-to-side and front-to-back allowing the mower deck to better follow the terrain contours. It also improves the weight distribution for better handling on hills. This flotation feature is similar to that found on the Stander I’s bigger brothers, the Stander X and ZK.
Wright says the rugged Stander I is also built for operator comfort. The floating standing platform absorbs rough terrain through elastopolymer bumpers that provide a dampened feel similar to a car. The bumpers are progressive to accommodate various weight operators. The control panel looks like the Stander X panel. Its wide stance provides greater control while its forward slant makes the controls more ergonomic.
For contractors who want the Stander I’s handling features but need a larger deck, the new mower will be available with a 48- or 52-inch deck as well as the 36-inch deck. Engines range from 18.5 to 22 hp.
