The new Wright ZXT zero-turn mower will be powered exclusively with the new Vanguard BIG BLOCK 40.0 Gross HP* EFI ETC engine, featuring Vanguard’s electronic throttle control (ETC) technology. The ETC technology reacts instantaneously to any applied load from its environment to maintain power when the application demands.
“We have always been focused on building highly productive, low maintenance equipment, and the ZXT is no different,” said Ed Wright, CEO, Wright Manufacturing. “The Vanguard 40HP BIG BLOCK engine with Oil Guard is a perfect fit for this machine.”
For the full benefit of the ETC technology, a flywheel speed sensor detects any change in speed and sends a signal to the throttle body, ensuring consistent engine speed and quality of cut, no matter the environment or load. Also equipped with EFI, this engine has improved starting at all temperatures, smooth performance at all elevations, quick load acceptance and reduced fuel consumption.
Featuring Vanguard’s exclusive Oil Guard System technology, the engine offers extended oil change intervals up to 500 hours saving contractors up to 60 percent per unit on oil maintenance costs per season. Additionally, the easy-fill cap and integrated oil filter makes oil changes, quick, tool-less, and clean.
The new ZXT is available in multiple deck options, including 52-, 61- and 72-inches. Reaching a top speed of 13 mph, it also features 16 cc pumps and 18 cu-in wheel motors along with a Long Travel Suspension seat with 6 inches of range.
“Wright customers will feel the power of the new Vanguard 40HP on this machine,” said Chris Davison, senior marketing manager, Vanguard commercial power, Briggs & Stratton. “Plus, the new EFI ETC technology allows for a high-quality cut, no matter the conditions, making the ZXT with the 40HP engine a perfect pair for landscape professionals.”
