Wright to introduce Sport X mower at GIE+EXPO

Wright Commercial Products will unveil a new mower, the Sport X, at GIE+EXPO 2011, which will be held Oct. 27-29 in Louisville, Ky. Based on Wright’s popular Stander X, the Sport X offers the choice of stand-on or sit-down operation.

The Sport X combines all the features of the Stander with an easy-to-use deck-lift system and Wright’s new AERO CORE deck design.

The height of the Sport X’s large 48-, 52- or 61-inch decks can be adjusted on the fly, and the Sport X’s 9.5-mph cut speed increases productivity without sacrificing comfort.

The fold-away seat is positioned so the operator can step off for quick exits or to remove debris, and the mower stops immediately. An operator presence switch on the foot platform stops the blade and engine, and the control levers return to the neutral position when the operator lets go.

The Sport X is built to take on landscape challenges including steep hills.

See the new Sport X at GIE+EXPO outdoors at booth 7624D and indoors at booth 3094.
