Page 1
WARNING
User Clothing:
DO NOT operate the mower while wearing
sandals, tennis shoes, sneakers, or shorts.
Always wear long non-baggy pants. Wear hightop leather work boots with thick, textured
tread, soft-rubber soles at all times. Hard or
smooth soled shoes are too slippery for a good
footing on mower platform. NEVER wear loosefitting clothing which could get caught in moving
parts. Wearing safety glasses, ear protection
and safety shoes is advisable and required by
some local ordinances and insurance regulations.
WARNING
Inspect Mower Before Each Use:
DO NOT use the mower if any parts are not
maintained in good operating condition. Examine
the moving parts prior to each use. Look for
excessive wear, bald or worn tires, cracks in
parts, loose or missing bolts, cotter, linchpin or
“hair” pins and replace before operating the
mower. Make sure all safety equipment provided with the mower is in good operating order,
including all the warning decals and the required
operator-presence device which stops the
engine and blades when the foot-operated
Operator Presence Control (OPC) switch is
released. (To test the OPC, follow instructions
in the Operating Instructions section of this
manual.) Inspect the two anti-tip rollers and their
respective bolts at the rear of the mower for
tightness and proper operation. Ensure that all
parts of the hand-operated transmission control
system are tight and secure. This is to reduce
the possibility that the mower could have a loss
of control or safety.
WARNING
Scheduled Mower Maintenance
Safety:
Replace worn tire(s) with less than 3/32" of any
tread groove left. Use tires with the tread pattern
specified by Wright Mfg., Inc. only. DO NOT
Page 2
change the engine governor settings or over-rev
the engine contrary to engine manufacturer
specifications. Keep the Wright mower in good
operating condition, and keep safety devices and
shields in place and in working condition. Keep
all nuts, bolts, and screws tight to be sure the
equipment is in safe working condition. Check
the blade mounting bolts for proper tightness
every eight (8) hours of operation. Check the
blades for excessive wear and sharpness every
four to eight (4-8) hours of operation. Replace
excessively worn blades. Sharpen dull blades.
The mower should not be used after the blades or
other part of the mower strikes a foreign object,
until conducting a thorough inspection and any
damage is repaired. See the instructions in the
Recommended Maintenance section of this
manual for other items of required maintenance.
WARNING
Work Area Conditions and Inspection:
Prior to operating the unit carefully inspect all
lawn/ground areas where you plan to use the
mower for hidden, hard-to-see objects or uneven ground that may be hidden in the grass.
Clear the work area of moveable objects such
as wires, rocks, glass, etc. that might be picked
up by the mower and dangerously thrown.
Remove, if possible, or mark the location of all
immovable objects or irregular areas and be
sure not to hit them with any part of the mower,
its deck or the blades. Obstacles such as holes,
abrupt changes in ground contour, tree trunks,
stumps or roots, pipes protruding from the
ground, paving edges, etc. in the path of operation can abruptly turn or stop the mower. This
could throw you off the mower or into and
possibly over the handle bars causing serious
injury or death. The faster you are moving the
more potential there is for injury. Mow only in
daylight or in good artificial light. Keep away
from drop-offs, the edges of ponds, streams,
pools, etc. especially at the bottom of slopes. Do
not mow when children or others are around.
When the Wright mower is in use, never direct
the grass discharge toward bystanders, traffic,
cars or buildings nor allow anyone near the
machine while in operation. Thrown objects can
pass through glass windows and some walls of
buildings. There is extreme risk of danger from
thrown objects or being cut by the blades of the
mower or being run over if you lose control.
Never operate the mower in an enclosed area
without good, approved ventilation. Exhaust
fumes are dangerous.
WARNING
Initial Operating Safety Guidelines:
excessive speed may cause serious injury.
DO NOT allow inexperienced people to operate the mower until they have read and
understood these safety instructions.
Operate the mower at slower speeds while
becoming familiar with it.
The discharge chute deflector must be installed
at all times and in the down position except
that it may be raised when the grass
catcher is completely installed or a mulch
kit is completely installed.
If the mower discharge clogs, turn off the blade
clutch switch, apply the parking brake, stop
the engine and remove the key before
removing obstruction.
Keep all shields and covers in place, especially
grass discharge chute deflector and the
blade belt covers.
Keep hands, feet and clothing away from
rotating parts, especially the rear wheels,
blades, engine flywheel, belts and pulleys.
Do not touch engine or muffler while engine is
running or soon after it is stopped. These
areas can be so hot as to cause severe
burns.
Clean grass, leaves and lubricant spills from
surfaces after use to prevent fire hazard.
Be alert for traffic when crossing roads or
operating near roadways.
Before climbing curbs, crossing gravel drives,
sidewalks or roads, turn off the blades lift
them into transport position, and wait for
them to stop.
Read and understand the warnings on the
instrument panel of the mower.
Keep a firm hold on the stationary handle at
all times.
Keep both feet on the foot platform at all times.
Know the controls and how to stop quickly.
Before attempting to start the engine, follow
all starting instructions below and in the
engine operators manual.
Look behind before backing up.
Before leaving the operator’s position for
momentary reasons, turn off the blade
clutch engagement switch, apply the
parking brake. Keep others from coming
near the mower. Get back on the mower
as soon as possible.
When leaving the Wright mower unattended,
turn off the blade clutch engagement
switch, apply the parking brake, stop the
engine and remove the key. Never leave
the machine unattended on a slope in
case someone disengages the parking
brake which would be hazardous if the
mower were to roll.

WARNING
danger of suddenly sliding sideways or down the
hill. On moderate hills reduce speed and use
caution. When operating on a slope, travel across
the grade, whenever possible, not an up or down
pattern. Reduce speed and exercise extreme
caution on slopes and in sharp turns to prevent
tipping or loss of control. Be especially cautious
when changing direction on slopes.
When pointing up a slope, the Sentar has the
most weight on the drive wheels and therefore the
most traction at the tires. However, this is the
angle that it has the most tendency to tip back
(“pop a wheely”). This is the preferred angle for
mowing small areas of steeper slopes.
Recommendations for this angle:
Lean as far forward as possible and stand if
necessary to add your weight to the front
of the mower.
Accelerate gently. Do not accelerate quickly
to avoid "popping a wheely”.
If backing down the hill do not stop suddenly,
but slow down gradually.
When pointing down a slope, the Sentar has
the least weight on the rear drive wheels and
therefore the least traction at the tires. This is the
angle that the mower has the most tendency to
slide. However, this is the angle that it has the
least tendency to tip back. Avoid this angle, as it
has the least advantage for the Sentar.
Recommendations for this angle:
Stretch your arms out straight while holding
onto the stationary handlebar and sit back
as far as you can on the seat. This adds
more of your body weight to the drive
wheels for more traction.
Do not change speed suddenly to minimize
the tendency of going into a slide. Accelerate and deccelerate gently. If you ever go
into an uncontrolled slide while pointing
down a slope the recommended procedure is to let go of the handles and jump
off if necessary. Otherwise, control the
mower gently and stay off slopes that tend
to make the wheels slide.
When crossing a slope sideways, the Sentar
Page 4
has the average amount of weight on the drive
wheels versus the front wheels, similar to level
ground. However, this angle leaves the least
weight on the higher side drive wheel, tending to
make it slip. This is the preferred angle for mowing
large areas of gentle slopes.
Recommendations for this angle:
Sit back, as far as you can on the seat. This
adds weight to the rear drive wheels and
will allow you to mow more quickly across
the slope without sliding. If your Sentar is
equipped with the optional weight bar on
the front, the mower may not handle as well
crossing slopes as a Sentar without the
weight bar on the front. Weight on the front
of the mower reduces the traction of the
rear drive wheels and can cause the mower
to slide or nose dive down hill. Use of the
optional weight bar is determined by the
width of cut of the mower and the operator's
weight. For 48" and 52" cut mowers,
operators over 220 pounds may prefer the
optional weight kit. For 61" cut mowers,
operators over 280 may prefer the optional
weight kit. Remember it is recommended
that operators weigh at least 120 lb. and not
more than 350 lb.
Do not accelerate quickly to minimize the
tendency of "popping a wheely”.
Note: Excessively worn tire tread is dangerous.
Replace tire(s) with less than 3/32" of any tread
groove left. Use tires with the tread pattern recommended by Wright Mfg., Inc. only. Keep the tire
pressure in the drive tires between 20 and 24 psi.
Higher pressures will cause the tires to have less
traction which may prevent safe operation.
WARNING
Operation During Zero-Radius Turns:
During zero-radius turns (when one mower wheel
rotates backwards while the other rotates forward)
drive extra slowly to reduce the possibility of losing
traction, or control, or becoming dizzy. This will
help prevent you from being thrown off of the
mower. Be aware that if you do a turn on a slope
you may go through all of the orientations to a
slope mentioned above and must handle the
mower accordingly.
WARNING
WARNING
Operation in Reverse:
Hydraulic Safety:
Always keep a firm grip on the stationary handlebar with both hands. Keep both feet firmly on the
foot platform. Operate the mower very slowly,
inching it backward until you become familiar
with how the mower operates and always if in an
awkward location or position. Never place your
foot or feet on the ground near the back edge of
the mower while backing up to prevent serious
injury to feet or legs if mower were to run over
you. Look behind you before backing to prevent
injuring yourself or anyone behind you.
Keep body and hands away from pin holes or
fittings that eject hydraulic fluid under high pressure. Use paper or cardboard and not hands to
search for leaks. Hydraulic fluid escaping under
high pressure may have sufficient force to penetrate skin and cause serious injury. If foreign
fluid is injected into the skin, it must be surgically
removed within a few hours by a doctor familiar
with this form of injury or gangrene may result.
Seek medical attention immediately. Make sure
all hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition
before starting the Wright mower. Hydraulic fluid
is under high pressure. If you need service on
your hydraulic system, please see your authorized Wright dealer.
WARNING
Operation in Forward Direction:
Always keep a firm grip on the mower stationary
handlebar with both hands. Operate the mower
slowly until you become familiar with how the
mower operates. Do not operate the mower
faster than conditions allow. For example, hills,
wet or bumpy ground, dim light or high grass
would all be conditions where you should work
slower than normal. Never operate the mower at
the highest speed unless you are on level, wide,
open areas of clearly visible ground or transporting on paved areas. Speeding with any mower is
dangerous, and so is traveling faster than conditions should permit on this mower. Sudden stops
from excessive speed or falling off the mower
may cause serious injury or death.
We really want you to be as safe as possible.
Please read the above again and again until
you fully understand the methods to promote the safest operation possible.
REMEMBER - YOUR MOWER CAN BE ONLY
AS SAFE AS THE OPERATOR.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW SAFE OPERATING
PRACTICES MAY RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
WARNING
Fuel Safety:
Handle gasoline with care - it is highly flammable.
Do not smoke while handling gasoline. Use an
approved gasoline container. Never remove the
fuel cap or add gasoline to a running or hot
engine or an engine that has not been allowed to
cool for several minutes after running. Never fill
the tank indoors and always clean up spilled gas.
NEVER store the equipment with gasoline in the
tank inside a building where fumes may reach an
open flame or spark. Allow the engine to cool
before storing in any enclosure.

Irregular Operation
As you drive the mower listen for any unusual
noises and test for irregular operation and adjust
or service as necessary.
How To Drive The Mower:
While sitting or standing, both feet should be
firmly placed on the foot platform. Set the engine
speed about a fourth of the way from idle. Release the parking brake. Now try moving the hand
control levers, one at a time, very slightly, forward
and backward. Check to see if the wheels move
forward and backward according to position of
the levers. (If not, check to see that the pump
release valves are closed.) With both feet still
firmly placed on the foot platform, increase the
engine speed to about half of the way from idle
speed. Release the parking brake. The higher
engine speed will make the controls much more
responsive and the mower a lot quicker, so be
careful if it is your first time. Now try moving the
hand control levers, one at a time, very slightly,
forward and backward. Gradually increase your
speed until you are very acquainted with the
operation of the hand controls and the mower's
behavior. After gaining a good feel for how the
mower handles gradually attempt higher engine
speeds until familiar with operation at full throttle
engine speed.
How To Stop and Park The Mower
Come to a complete stop. If the blades are on,
turn them off using the switch on the instrument
panel. Make sure the control levers are in the
exact neutral position. Set the parking brake,
reduce the engine speed to idle, shut off the
ignition switch to stop the engine and remove
the key from the ignition switch. The mower is
now parked. Do not leave parked unattended
on a sloped surface.

wheels to go over while the mower is moving at
least a 45 degree angle to the curb. To drive off a
curb first, try driving up onto it to make sure the
curb is not too high. If the curb is not too high,
drive the right-front caster off first while driving
toward the curb at a 45 degree angle (the curb
should be to your right). Then, maintaining that 45
degree angle so the left caster goes over, then the
right-rear wheel, then the left rear wheel.
WARNING
Never drive straight on to or off of a curb.
Never drive straight on to or off of a curb. If you
do the whole procedure at a very sharp angle it
will tend to minimize the contact of the mower
deck with the curb and you will be able to more
safely control the mower.

may desire to decrease the ground speed approximately 25-30%.
The slower setting has a corresponding decrease in the sensitivity of the controls. In other
words, a given amount of movement of the control
levers will cause about a 25-30% change in the
ground speed making the controls less sensitive.
After stopping the engine, the adjustment is
made by removing the pins that hold the control
cables onto the control lever from the current
holes in the control levers and reinstalling them
and the cable into the alternate holes. The top
holes closest to the control handles are for the
faster, more sensitive setting and the bottom
holes farthest from the control handles are the
slower, less sensitive setting. BE SURE THE
PINS IN THE CONTROL CABLES ARE SECURELY IN PLACE AND LATCHED ONTO THE
CABLE YOKE EACH TIME YOU REMOVE
THEM. YOU MUST USE NEW PINS IF THE OLD
ONES ARE WORN, BROKEN, OR BENT. You
must then perform the Tracking Adjustment
described below.
How to Perform the Tracking Adjustment
First ensure that the tire pressure is equal on both
rear drive tires and equal on both front tires. Drive
the mower on a level parking lot with engine at full
throttle. Check that the mower drives in a straight
line when both hand controls are held to the full
speed position which is up against the stationary
control bar. If not, park the mower and stop the
engine. The adjustment is made by removing the
pin from one of the ends of the control cables and
screwing the cable yoke to either make the
control cable longer or shorter. Either end of the
cable can be adjusted. Before changing the
length of the cables several facts are important to
know:
Page
speed it pulls the pump control lever (on the sides
of the pumps) against the pump's internal stop.
The pumps have an internal stop that is not
designed to take this type of force and could
eventually cause pump leakage or other damage
to the pump. Therefore, to reach the maximum
capable speed, the cables should be shortened
one turn at a time until you can feel in the hand
control that the internal stop has been contacted,
then lengthen the cable one turn. You will feel the
slight resistance (there is no need to start the
engine or even replace the pin while checking
this incrementally, just put the cable yoke pin in
the hole in the lever and test it by squeezing the
handle to full fast position). Remember, this
procedure does not apply if the Speed/Sensitivity Adjustment is in the slower setting, otherwise
you will run out of threads on the cable ends and
the mower will go fast but will lose most or all of
its reverse capability and the gap between the
stationary bar and the control levers becomes
excessive when at the neutral position.
So, if the mower is tracking to the left, either the
left side needs to go faster (by lengthening the
cable) or the right side needs to go slower (by
shortening the cable). And, if the mower is tracking to the right either the right side needs to go
faster (by lengthening the cable) or the left side
needs to go slower (by shortening the cable). It is
important that neither cable should be shortened
too far as mentioned above.
The only reference point to limit the adjustment
from becoming extremely off is the relative
position of the pump internal stop and the stationary bar in the faster Speed/Sensitivity setting. Therefore, if everything is way off either
because you are installing new parts or other
reasons you should only use the faster Speed/
Sensitivity setting to get the tracking to be accurate and then change to the slower speed range
and adjust the tracking only one or two turns on
either side. BE SURE THE PINS IN THE
CABLE YOKES ARE SECURELY REPLACED

necessary. It is normal to need to make these
adjustments from time to time as the linkage
breaks in or wears.
How to Test/Use the Blade Clutch/
Brake Switch
Before testing the blade clutch/brake operation
make sure the area is clear and there is nothing
vulnerable to thrown objects from under the
mower. No one should be near the mower deck
or in its line of discharge. The discharge chute
deflector should be in the down position. The
parking brake should now be applied. Move the
engine throttle to the highest RPM speed setting. (When mowing, the engine speed should
always be at its highest setting. The engine
governor will regulate the engine according to
the different mowing conditions at that setting.)
Place both feet firmly on the foot platform and turn
on the blade clutch switch. Run blades for a
minute or so. Try engaging and disengaging the
blades a few times about 10 seconds apart. If the
blades do not start and stop in a few seconds
each time, service the blade brake system or
contact your local Wright dealer. Under mowing
load, the clutch's longevity will be the greatest at
the highest RPM setting.
How to Test the Operator Presence
Control (OPC) Switch
With the parking brakes applied and the blades
ON, try lifting your feet off the foot platform to test
the Operator Presence Control switch (OPC).
The engine should kill and the blades should stop
within a few seconds. If not, service the OPC
system or contact your local Wright dealer.
WARNING
Service and Adjustments
Tire Maintenance and Pressure
Excessively worn tire tread is dangerous on all
hills. Replace drive tires with less than
3/32" of any tread groove left. Use tires with the
tread pattern recommended by Wright Mfg., Inc.
only. Keep the tire pressure in the drive tires
between 18 and 24 psi. Higher pressures will
cause the tires to have less traction which will
force you to go slower and with less safety and
give you a harder ride. Keep the tire pressure in
the front caster tires between 20 and 35 psi.
Higher pressures will help keep the caster tires
on their rims when impacted from the side but
give a harder ride. They do not have any tread but
should be replaced when excessively worn.
Height-of-Cut
Before Adjusting the Height-of-Cut be sure the
mower deck is off, and all four tires have proper
air pressure and check for even tire wear. The
height-of-cut can be adjusted the following ways:
Pull the deck lift lever on the right hand side
of the mower towards the rear of the mower
until it clicks once into the locked transport
position. Then set the mower blade height
with the selector on the left hand side of the
mower. Once the proper height setting is set
on the left, pull back on the deck lift lever on
the right hand side and then lower the lever
towards the front of the machine until it stops
at the set height of cut.
Deck adjustments
The mower deck can be adjusted for pitch and
side-to-side level. Pitch is the relationship
between the front of the deck and the rear of the
deck in regards to height of cut. In most cases, a
positive pitch (front of the deck lower than the
rear of the deck) of 1/4" is the optimum setting.
These two adjustments can easily be made by
using the threaded deck hangers located at each
corner of the deck. These hangers are connected to the chains that hold the deck. Simply
rotate the hanger of the corner of the deck that
needs adjustment. These hanger are righthanded threads. If you raise the rear hangers
above the factory setting, the deck may not raise
all the way up into transport position. Be sure
and check the deck height of cut range after any
adjustments are made to these hangers to insure
that the height of cut adjustments work properly. If
you are unable to make the adjustments needed
by only using these hangers contact your dealer
for assistance.

Maintenance Service Intervals
Belt Tension Adjustment
The pump drive belt is self-adjusting, and requires no adjustment, just replacement. The
blade drive belt is self-adjusting also and requires no adjustment, just replacement.
How To Move The Mower If The
Engine Won’t Start
Rotate both of the manual “dump” valve levers on
the top of each hydraulic pump about 1/2 turn
counterclockwise. It is important not to overtighten these levers. Damage may occur to the
pump if this valve is overtightened.
How To Bleed Air From The
Hydraulic System
Whenever servicing the hydraulic system, it is of
the utmost importance to keep any dirt or debris
from getting into the system. Clean off all parts
before disassembly and assembly. When any of
the hydraulic parts are disconnected or removed
or when the oil is changed, air must be bled from
the system. If air is entrained in the system, loss
of power, excessive heat, and damage to the
hydraulic pumps may occur. First make sure the
oil level in the reservoir is correct. The level
should be between 4"-4.5" below the top of the oil
fill tube. Use synthetic oil: Mobil 1 10W-30 or
AmsOil 10W-40. Lift the mower so that the rear
wheels are off the ground. Be careful to support
the mower so that it will not fall or tip while the
system is bled of air. With the bypass valves
open and the engine running, slowly move the
control levers back and forth five or six times.
Now close the bypass valves and with the engine
running, slowly move the control levers back and
forth five or six times. It may be necessary to
repeat the above steps a few times until all the air
is purged and the rear wheels are turning at
normal speed. After purging is complete, recheck the oil level in the reservoir and top off if
necessary.
Battery service
The battery is 12 volts and is a maintenance free
battery. Only charge the battery if it will not start
the mower properly. Remove the battery from the
mower before charging. Follow the instructions
of the battery charger for proper and safe charging of the battery.
It is very important to keep good maintenance
records. Use the hour meter on the mower and
record the hour reading of each maintenance
service so you will not forget how long it has been
since you last did certain maintenance. The more
faithful and consistent you are, the longer the
mower will last and slower it will depreciate.
