PRE-DELIVERY SERVICE OF MOWER BY DEALER
WARNING
Before proceeding with the Pre-Delivery Service of your mower,
please read the safety instructions manual in its entirety. Only
your authorized Wright dealer should perform the Pre-Delivery
Service of the mower.
The Wright Stander X is shipped completely assembled and has been adjusted and tested at the factory.
However, due to the jostling of the shipping process and the delivery time lapse, the following items need to
be repeated again before starting the mower. After you have uncrated the mower, follow these procedures in
the order indicated:
Inspect the mower for any damage, unusual conditions or missing parts.
Inspect the mower for all of its decals, especially the warning decals. There should be one blade warning
decal on each side of the deck, the “shield missing” decal under the blade belt cover, and the dash decal.
Check service, parts and recall bulletins to ensure unit does not need any updates.
Check (and fill if necessary) engine oil level according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation.
Check (and fill if necessary) hydraulic fluid level. Use fully SYNTHETIC oil: Mobil-1 15W-50 (see Hydro
Check/Fill section of this manual).
Check rear tire pressure – 18 – 22 psi. is recommended. Use the higher pressures for heavier operators.
Front Casters are equipped with non-pneumatic tires and do not require any air. Lowering tire pressure will
affect deck pitch. Always check pitch any time tire pressure is set below recommended pressures.
Lubricate all appropriate moving parts (see the Lubrication section of this manual).
Check the battery to see that the cables are tight and connected properly. The battery is 12 volts and is a
maintenance-free battery. Only charge the battery if it will not start the mower properly.
Check the “Quick Cut Height” deck adjustment system for proper operation.
Add regular unleaded gasoline to fuel tank. (use a minimum of 87 octane gasoline) (You may use gasoline
containing up to 10% ethanol and gasoline containing up to 5% of methanol.)
Check brake safety interlock.
Try starting the engine with the parking brake released. (Engine should not start. If engine starts,
service the parking brake locking system)
Apply parking brake
Start the engine according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation. Let the engine run at low - mid
RPM for several minutes to ensure the engine oil reaches all of the engine parts and gets the hydraulic fluid
circulating through the pumps, etc.
Check if the parking brake locking system prevents the units from being driven while engaged. If not,
service the parking brake locking system.
Release the parking brake. Next, move the hand control levers, one at a time, to make the wheels move in
forward and backward rotation.
3
Before testing the blade clutch/brake operation, make sure the area is clear and there is nothing vulnerable
to possible thrown objects from under the mower. No one should be near the mower deck or in its line of
discharge at this or at any time. The discharge chute deflector should be in the down position.
Move the engine throttle control to ¾ RPM speed setting.
Turn on the blade clutch switch. Run blades for approximately one minute. Next, engage and disengage
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.
With the blades on, disengage the OPC switch to test the Operator Presence Control switch (OPC). A time
delay has been added to the OPC system. The engine should die and the blades should stop with-in 6-9
seconds after stepping off of the foot platform. If not, service the OPC system.
Disengage the blades.
Drive the mower around on a level parking lot. Check that the mower drives in a straight line when both
hand controls are at the full speed position. (If not, refer to How to Perform The Tracking Adjustment section
of this manual) (The control handles may not line up perfectly)
As you drive the mower, listen for any unusual noises and test for irregular operation and adjust or
service as necessary.
Go over the safety information and operating procedures in this manual with the customer. Instruct each
customer in proper operation and observe the customer during their initial operation on a level parking lot.
Repeat until the customer is familiar and comfortable with the basic operation and use of the mower.
• Dealer:
Register the mower online within 14 days from the date of retail purchase.
(If unable to use the online registration process, contact your Distributor to
register for you)
Registering the product indicates you have successfully completed the predelivery service checklist.
The limited warranty is considered invalid unless the unit is registered and the
above steps are taken.
Remember, the purchaser is both your customer and our customer and his/her
satisfaction is very important. Thank you for supporting our products.
The mower is now ready for delivery to your customer

engine contrary to engine manufacturer
specifications. Failure to comply can compromise
operator safety, shorten equipment life and void your
manufacturer’s warranty. 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. Sharpen
dull blades. Replace blades when they become
excessively worn. 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. When inspecting or
changing blades, turn off the blade clutch switch,
apply the parking brake, stop the engine and remove
the key. Make sure the chute deflector is always in
place and operating properly. Replace if the deflector
becomes worn or ceases to properly deflect the grass
in a safe manner. (Refer to the maintenance interval
chart at the end of this manual)
WARNING
User Clothing
DO NOT operate the mower while wearing sandals,
tennis shoes, sneakers, or shorts. Always wear long
non-baggy pants. Wear high-top leather steel-toed
work boots with thick, textured tread, soft-rubber
soled at all times. Hard or smooth soled shoes are
too slippery for a good footing on mower platform.
NEVER wear loose-fitting clothing or jacket pockets
that can get caught on the handlebars or control
levers of any mower you drive. 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
WARNING
Work Area Conditions & Inspection
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 pins, linchpins 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. Be sure that all
parts of the hand-operated hydraulic control system
are tight and secure. This is to reduce the possibility
that the mower could have a loss of control during
operation and compromise operator safety. Ensure
deck pitch is between 1/4 - 3/8”. (Refer to the
maintenance interval chart at the end of this manual)
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, toys,
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 within 50 feet of 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
Regular Mower Safety Maintenance
Keep your Wright mower in good operating condition,
and keep safety devices and shields in place and in
working condition. 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
change the engine governor settings or over-rev the
6
• If the mower discharges grass clogs, turn off the
blade clutch switch, apply the parking brake,
stop the engine and remove the key before
removing obstruction(s).
• Keep all shields and covers in place, namely, all
blade and belt covers, engine shields, and
grass discharge chute deflector.
• Keep hands, feet and clothing away from rotating
parts, especially the rear wheels, blades,
engine flywheel, belts and pulleys.
• Do not touch engine, muffler or hydraulic system
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 and
wait for them to stop.
WARNING
Initial Operating Safety Guidelines
• 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
operator’s manual.
• Look behind before backing up.
• Before leaving the operator’s position, even
momentarily, turn off the blade clutch
engagement switch and 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. This could create a rollover
hazard.
• When transporting, driving onto transport vehicles,
into buildings, across parking lots or otherwise
not mowing grass, turn off the blade clutch
engagement switch to reduce risk of thrown
objects and rotating blade hazard. After
coming to a stop apply the parking brake, stop
the engine and remove the key.
• Before performing any maintenance or repair
service, disengage power to blades, apply the
parking brake, stop the engine, remove
ignition key and spark plug wire from spark
plug(s).
• All operators of this mower should exercise
caution when driving this mower at high
speeds. Sudden acceleration or deceleration
may cause serious injury.
• DO NOT allow inexperienced persons 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 grass discharge chute deflector must be
installed at all times and in the down position
except that it may be raised when cleaning out
the deck or a grass catcher is installed or a
mulch kit and block-off plate is properly
installed.
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 are all conditions
requiring slower speeds. 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.
WARNING
Operation In Reverse
Always keep a firm grip on the mower stationary
handlebar with both hands. Keep both feet firmly on
the foot platform. Look behind you before backing
to prevent injuring yourself or anyone behind you.
Operate the mower very slowly, inching it backward
until you become familiar with how the mower
operates. Always operate slowly if in an awkward
location or position. While backing up never place
your foot or feet on the ground near the back edge
of the mower to prevent serious personal injury if the
mower were to run over you.
7
Recommendations for this angle:
• Lean back with arms stretched out straight while
holding onto the stationary handlebar. This
transfers more of your body weight to the rear
drive wheels for more traction.
• Do not change speed suddenly to minimize the
tendency of going into a slide. Accelerate and
decelerate 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.
WARNING
Zero-Radius Turn Operation
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 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
below and must handle the mower accordingly.
When crossing a slope sideways, your mower 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.
WARNING
Operation on Slopes
DO NOT operate on steep slopes 25 degrees or
greater for long periods or engine damage may
occur. Do not operate the mower on slopes steeper
than you can feel secure about the traction of the
tires and the stability of the mower. Do not operate
the mower on slopes at all when the grass is wet.
There is a danger of suddenly sliding sideways or
down the hill. When operating on a slope, travel
across the grade whenever possible, not in 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.
Recommendations for this angle:
• Lean back. This adds weight to the rear drive
wheels and will allow you to mow more quickly
across the slope without sliding. These are
general guidelines only. The mower function
and comfort will vary depending on mowing
environment, operator driving style and
preference.
• To reduce the chances of “popping-a-wheelie”, do
not accelerate quickly.
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 18 and 22 psi.
Higher pressures will cause the tires to have less
traction which may prevent safe operation. Lower
pressure will affect the deck pitch, thus creating a
level deck or a reverse pitched deck and this WILL
compromise cut quality.
(Refer to tire maintenance and pressure section)
When pointing up a slope, your mower 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
wheelie.”) This is the preferred angle for mowing
small areas of steeper slopes.
Recommendations for this angle:
• Lean as far forward as possible to add your weight
to the front of the mower.
• Accelerate gently. Do not accelerate quickly to
avoid “popping a wheelie”.
• If backing down the hill, do not stop suddenly but
slow down gradually.
WARNING
Fuel Safety
When pointing down a slope, your mower 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 your mower.
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
8
where fumes may reach an open flame or spark.
Allow the engine to cool before storing in any
enclosure. (Drain fuel to a ½ tank when performing
maintenance or repairs that require the unit to be
tilted)
Wright is fully concerned with your safety.
Please read the above repeatedly 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
Hydraulic Safety
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 escape 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 your
Wright mower. Hydraulic fluid is under high
pressure. If you need service on your hydraulic
system, please see your authorized Wright dealer.
Using a Spark Arrester
The engine in this machine is not equipped with a
spark arrester muffler. It is in violation of California
Public Resources Code Section 4442 to use or
operate the engine on or near any forest-covered,
brush-covered, or grass covered land unless the
exhaust system is equipped with a spark arrester
meeting any applicable local or state laws. Other
states or federal area may have similar laws.
WARNING
Replacement Parts
Use of parts other than specified parts supplied by
Wright Manufacturing, Inc. may compromise the
safe use of the mower, are not recommended and
their use could void the warranty. Always check
with your Dealer or the Wright Mfg website,
www.wrightmfg.com for the Illustrated Parts List for
your equipment.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
If you are not completely familiar with the Safety Instruction
Manual read it now before proceeding with the operation of the
mower. REMEMBER THERE ARE CERTAIN PRECAUTIONS
LISTED IN THIS MANUAL THAT YOU MUST NOW TAKE BEFORE
STARTING THE MOWER.
• Make sure the control levers are in the exact
neutral position.
• Apply the parking brake if it is not already set.
• Turn OFF the blade engaging switch if it is on.
• Check the engine oil.
• Turn fuel valve to the “ON” position.
Inspect Mower Before Each Use
Inspection of Mower: Do not use the mower if
any parts are not maintained in good operating
condition. Examine all moving parts prior to each
use. Look for excessive wear, bald drive tires or
worn out front tires (normally smooth), cracks in
parts, loose or missing bolts, cotter, linchpin or
“hair” pins or cable yoke pins and replace before
operating the mower. Make sure all safety
equipment provided with the mower is in good
operating order, including all warning decals and
the 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 the instructions
given later in 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 Quad-Lever™ control system
are tight and secure. This is to reduce the
possibility that the mower could have a loss of
control or safety.
Starting the engine
• Start the engine according to the engine
manufacturer’s recommendation, see engine
manual. Set the throttle control lever near mid
throttle, pull out on the choke control knob and
turn the key to the start position. Do not
engage the starter for more than ten (10)
seconds at a time. This may overheat the
starter and the wiring systems. Wait ten (10)
seconds between attempts. If the engine does
not start after several attempts or stalls
frequently, take the mower in for service.
After starting the engine according to the engine
manufacturer’s recommendation, push in on the
choke control knob to open the choke valve, let the
engine run for several minutes to get the hydraulic
fluid circulating through the pumps, etc. and to
allow the engine to warm up. Do not over-rev a
cold engine.
Basic Operation: The following procedures are
to guide you through the basic operation of the
mower. You should be a qualified mower operator
according to the safety section of this manual. If
this is your first time, operation should only be
done with the assistance of your dealer on a level
area. You should go through each step, in the
order indicated, every time you start the mower.
Unusual noises or irregular operation:
As you drive the mower, listen for any unusual
noises and test for irregular operation and adjust or
service as necessary.
WARNING
How to drive the mower
While standing, both feet should be firmly placed

brake. The higher engine speed will make the
controls much more responsive and the mower
much quicker; Use caution 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 well
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.
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,
maintain that 45 degree angle so the left caster goes
over, then the right-rear wheel, then the left rear
wheel. WARNING: Do NOT step off the mower
during ANY maneuver.
WARNING
Never drive straight onto or off a curb.
How to Stop and Park the Mower
Never drive straight onto or off 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.
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, (keep engine
running at the idle speed for about 1 minute)
shut off the ignition switch to stop the engine and
then remove the key from the ignition switch. Turn
fuel valve to the “OFF” position. The mower is now
parked. Do not leave mower unattended on a
sloped surface.
Mowing on Varying Terrain
See the Safety Instructions section of this manual,
especially the parts on:
• Initial Operating Safety Guidelines
• Operation On Slopes
• Operation In Reverse
• Operation In Forward Direction
• Operation During Zero-Radius Turns
Driving the Mower Over a Curb
To climb a curb, first see the Safety Instructions
section of this manual, especially the parts on:
• Initial Operating Safety Guidelines
• Operation In Reverse
• Operation In Forward Direction
Fuel System/Fuel Shut-Off Valves
Do not fill fuel tank completely. Fill until level is 1 inch
below the bottom of the fill neck. This will allow for
the gas to expand. (Refer to fuel safety section of this
manual) (use a minimum of 87 octane gasoline) (You
may use gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol and
gasoline containing up to 5% of methanol.)
• Close fuel shut-off valve for transport,
maintenance and storage.
Next, raise the mower deck into the locked transport
position. This is the highest position for the mower
deck. Then drive the mower in reverse at a 45
degree angle to the curb (with the left side of the
mower closest to the curb) until you are within an
inch or two of the left-rear tire hitting the curb. Stop
and then gradually bump into the curb with that tire
until it is just on top of the curb. If the tire slips even
while lurching the mower into the curb, then the curb
is too high and you should use ramps or find another
way. The mower should still be at a 45 degree angle
to the curb. Now, while maintaining the same angle
to the curb, continue to back up until the right-rear
tire is close to the curb. Using the same technique
lurch the right tire onto the curb. After both wheels
are on top of the curb, turn the mower
counterclockwise and back up so the left caster
wheel comes over and last should be the right caster
wheel as the mower is twisting to the left
(counterclockwise). The technique works the best if
you try not to drive backwards at a near 90 degree
angle to the curb but get all of the 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

How to Adjust Neutral
Neutral refers to the mower movement when the
engine is set to full throttle, parking brake is off, and
the control levers are in the neutral position. The
mower should not move forward or backward during
this time. If the mower is moving forward or
rearward, the neutral setting must be adjusted. The
hydraulic pump has a Return-to-Neutral (RTN)
device built into the linkage of the pump. Before
adjusting neutral, it is necessary to lift the rear drive
wheels off the ground using a jack and stands. To
make the adjustment, loosen the ¼” Allen bolt and
rotate the RTN device on the pump corresponding
to the wheel that needs adjustment. If the right
wheel turns in the neutral position, then the right
pump RTN needs to be adjusted. The RTN
mechanism should be rotated until the neutral
position is found and then retighten the ¼” allen
bolt. Use care not to over tighten the allen bolt.
Repeat the procedure on the other pump if
necessary.
Changing the Speed/Sensitivity Adjustment
The controls are initially set with the Speed/
Sensitivity Adjustment
Front
Slow setting in the faster, more
sensitive position. If
an operator is not
completely familiar
with the mower
operation the operator
may desire to
decrease
the ground speed. 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 rod ends from the
current holes in the control system torsion bar and
reinstalling them into the alternate holes. The holes
farthest from the operator position are for the slower,
less sensitive setting and the holes closest to the
operators position are the faster, more sensitive setting.
You must then perform the Tracking Adjustment
described below.
How to Perform the Tracking Adjustment
control rods) and adjusting the control rods. Once
the jam-nuts are loosened at the top and bottom of
the control rod proceed to turning the control rod
clockwise or counter-clockwise. Shortening the
control rod will increase the speed of the forward
movement of the mower on that side. Lengthening
the control rod will slow the forward movement of the
mower on that side.
In the “faster” Speed/Sensitivity setting (this is the
factory setting) neither rod should be lengthened so
much that at full speed it pulls the pump control lever
(on the sides of the pumps) against the internal
pump stop. Therefore, to reach the maximum
capable speed, the rods should be lengthened one
turn at a time until you can feel, in the hand control,
that the internal pump stop has been contacted.
Then shorten the rod one turn (damage to the hydro
pump will occur if the controls are adjusted in a way
that put direct pressure on the internal pump stop).
You will feel the slight resistance. There is no need
to start the engine while checking this incrementally.
Remember, this procedure does not apply if the
Speed/ Sensitivity Adjustment is in the slower
setting.
If the rod is made shorter it will increase the forward
speed capability for that side of the mower and if the
rod is made longer it will slow down that side of the
mower. So, if the mower is tracking to the left, either
the left side needs to go faster (by shortening the
left-side rod) or the right side needs to go slower (by
lengthening the right-side rod). If the mower is
tracking to the right, either the right side needs to go
faster (by shortening the right-side rod) or the left
side needs to go slower (by lengthening the left-side
rod). It is important that neither rod 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 stop and the handlebar 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 accurate
and then change to the slower speed range and
adjust the tracking only one or two turns on either
side.
After getting the mower to track straight, check
and/or readjust the neutral adjustment on the pump
by using a ¼” allen wrench at the Return-to-Neutral
(RTN) mechanism, if necessary. It is normal to make
these adjustments from time to time.
First ensure that the tire pressure is equal on both
rear drive tires (18-22 psi). Drive the mower on a
level parking lot with the engine at full throttle.
Check that the mower drives in a straight line when
both hand controls are held to the full speed position.
If not, park the mower and stop the engine. The
adjustment is made by loosening the jam-nuts on the
control rods (this may need to be done to one or both
12
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 pin 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 side and then lower the
lever towards the front of the machine until it
stops at the set height-of-cut.
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 ¾
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 6-9 seconds each time, service the
blade brake system or contact your local Wright
dealer. Under mowing load, the clutch’s life will be
the greatest if engaged and disengaged at the ¾
throttle level.
Deck Adjustments
The mower deck can be adjusted for pitch and side-toside levels. 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
is lower than the rear of the deck) of ¼” is the optimum
setting. The adjustments can easily be made by using
the deck lift rod assemblies attached to the front and
rear deck lift arms and the threaded deck hangers (deck
pitch and side-to-side adjustments) located at the front
of the deck and at the rear of the deck frame. These
hangers are connected to the chains that hold the deck.
How to Test the Operator Presence
Control (OPC) Switch
A three second time delay was added to eliminate
clutch cycling on bumpy terrain. To test, apply the
parking brake and turn ON the blades, 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 6-9 seconds.
If not, service the OPC system or contact your local
Wright dealer.
First ensure Deck Lift Rod is 29” from center to center of
the ball ends
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 22
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. Front
Casters are equipped with non-pneumatic tires and
do not required any air. They do not have any tread
but should be replaced when excessively worn.
Lowering the tire pressure below the recommended
pressure will change the pitch of the deck which
may require further deck pitch adjustment.

Height-of-Cut
Before Adjusting the Height-of-Cut be sure the
mower blades are not spinning, and both rear tires
have proper air pressure. Check for even tire wear.
If you raise any of these settings above the factory
setting, the deck may not raise all the way up into the
transport position. Be sure and check the deck

Spring platform Adjustment
The factory setting is both springs set at the most
forward position. The more rearward the spring
position, the stiffer the platform gets. Adjustment
will be to preference of feel. The two adjustment
springs should at all times, be positioned next to
each other not one forward or back more than the
other. To adjust, loosen each spring retaining bolt
from the top just enough to slide it, then tighten
with impact wrench. The nut may spin using hand
wrench. NOTE, do not loosen too much, if the nut
falls off, the foot platform will have to be removed
to reinstall. There is an extra hole for a third spring
for operators heavy enough to bottom out the duel

Hydro Oil Tank Check/Fill
Checking oil
• Ensure mower is on a level surface.
• Lift hinged pad and remove hex socket plug
from oil level port on the back of the tank.
• Hydro oil should be at the bottom of the threads.
Filling oil
• Lift hinged pad and remove hex socket plug.
• Using a funnel, fill tank through oil level port until
oil reaches bottom threads of the port.
How to Move the Mower if the Engine
Won’t Start
Rotate both of the hydro bypass valves on the side
of each hydraulic pump about ½ turn
counterclockwise. It is important not to over
tighten these. Damage may occur to the pump if
this valve is over tightened.

Bleeding 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 oil should
be level with the bottom threads of the oil level

port. Use fully synthetic oil: Mobil1 15W-50. 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 until all the air
is purged and the rear wheels are turning at
normal speed. After purging is complete, adjust
the oil level in the reservoir if necessary.
Battery Service
The battery is 12 volts and is a maintenance free
battery. Charge the battery only 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.
Cleaning the Mower
The underside of the mower deck should be checked
and cleaned twice daily and more often if the grass
being mowed is lush or wet. The entire mower
should be cleaned daily at the end of the work day.
Cleaning should be done with a leaf blower or lowpressure compressed air. Wash with water only
when necessary and do not use a pressure washer
or nozzle as the water can enter bearings and
electrical connections causing an electrical short,
rust and corrosion. When washing with water, avoid
spraying near the hydro cap and do so when the unit
has cooled down. Washing a hot machine can
cause various unseen system damage. If water is
used for cleaning, immediately dry it with a leaf
blower or low-pressure compressed air and run with
blades engaged for approximately 10 minutes. Once
the wash is complete, always lubricate and grease all
applicable areas.
Fuel Evaporation System
All Wright Sport X’s need to have this mandatory
feature.
• Do Not alter or remove.
• Do Not fill past the “Max Fill Level” line shown in

installed during the warranty period are warranted until the end
of the respective original period according to the categories

FEDERAL AND CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY STATEMENT
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Air Resources Board (CARB) and
Wright Manufacturing, Inc. (WMI) are pleased to explain the evaporative emission control system (EECS)
warranty on your 2011 commercial mower. In the United States, new equipment that use small off-road
engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the Federal’s stringent evaporative emissions
standards. In California, new equipment that use small off-road engines must be designed, built and
equipped to meet the State’s stringent anti-smog standards. WMI must warrant the EECS on your
commercial mower for the period of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect or
improper maintenance of your equipment.
Your EECS may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel-injection system, the ignition system, catalytic
converter, fuel tanks, fuel lines, fuel caps, valves, canisters, filters, vapor hoses, clamps, connectors, and
other associated emission-related components.
Where a warrantable condition exists, WMI will repair your commercial mower at no cost to you including
diagnosis, parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY COVERAGE:
This evaporative emission control system is warranted for two years. If any evaporative emission-related
part on your equipment is defective, the part will be repaired or replaced by WMI.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
•
•
•
As the commercial mower owner, you are responsible for performance of the required maintenance
listed in your owner’s manual. WMI recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on
your commercial mower but WMI cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts.
As the commercial mower owner, you should however be aware that WMI may deny you warranty
coverage if your commercial mower or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, or improper
maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your commercial mower to WMI’s distribution center or service
center as soon as the problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable
amount of time, not to exceed 30 days. If you have a question regarding your warranty coverage, you
should contact WMI’s warranty claims department at (301) 360-9810.
GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE:
WMI warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the commercial mower is:
Designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations; and
Free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted part to be identical in
all material respects to that part as described in WMI’s application for certification.
The warranty period begins on the date the commercial mower is delivered to an ultimate purchaser or first
placed into service. The warranty period is two years.
Subject to certain conditions and exclusions as stated below, the warranty on emission-related parts is as
follows:
(1) Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written
instructions supplied, is warranted for the warranty period stated above. If the part fails during the period of
warranty coverage, the part will be repaired or replaced by WMI according to subsection (4) below. Any such
part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remainder of the period.
23
(2) Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the written instructions supplied is
warranted for the warranty period stated above. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be
warranted for the remaining warranty period.
(3) Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instructions
supplied is warranted for the period of time before the first scheduled replacement date for that part. If the
part fails before the first scheduled replacement, the part will be repaired or replaced by WMI according to
subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remainder
of the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for the part.
(4) Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty provisions herein must be performed at a
warranty station at no charge to the owner.
(5) Notwithstanding the provisions herein, warranty services or repairs will be provided at all of our
distribution centers that are franchised to service the subject engines or equipment.
(6) The commercial mower owner will not be charged for diagnostic labor that is directly associated with
diagnosis of a defective, emission-related warranted part, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at
a warranty station.
(7) WMI is liable for damages to other engine or equipment components proximately caused by a failure
under warranty of any warranted part.
(8) Throughout the commercial mower warranty period stated above, WMI will maintain a supply of
warranted parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such parts.
(9) Any replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty maintenance or repairs and must
be provided without charge to the owner. Such use will not reduce the warranty obligations of WMI.
(10) Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources Board may not be used. The use
of any non-exempted add-on or modified parts by the ultimate purchaser will be grounds for disallowing a
warranty claims. WMI will not be liable to warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of a
non-exempted add-on or modified part.
WARRANTED PARTS:
The repair or replacement of any warranted part otherwise eligible for warranty coverage may be excluded
from such warranty coverage if WMI demonstrates that the commercial mower has been abused, neglected,
or improperly maintained, and that such abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance was the direct cause of the
need for repair or replacement of the part. That notwithstanding, any adjustment of a component that has a
factory installed, and properly operating, adjustment limiting device is still eligible for warranty coverage. The
following emission warranty parts listed below are covered:
(1)
Fuel Tank
