Wright Stander

Intro

 

The stand-on mowing revolution started right here. However, today’s Stander® is even more refined, agile and well balanced than its forefather. The patented stand-on design, known as Operator Balance Control (OBC), lets you become an extension of the machine, which allows you to handle changing terrain and hills almost as fast as level ground.

Navigating tight spaces is a breeze with the Stander’s zero-turn radius capability. And the compact size means it will never have to be left off the trailer. Even now, the Stander is still making a bold statement in mowing performance.

About

BILL WRIGHT DIDN’T START OUT WITH THE INTENTION TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE LANDSCAPING BUSINESS.

He started cutting lawns as a nine-year-old, and continued into his twenties while working as a car mechanic and to help pay for college. Bill bought used and new commercial mowers, souping them up to improve their performance. He eventually went full-time mowing under the name Lawn-Wright, his crews mowing 500+ lawns per week. In sharing his innovations with other landscapers, he enjoyed helping them work smarter, quicker, more efficiently and to a higher standard. Here are a few examples of mowing firsts from Wright:

CLIP SOFTWARE As Bill’s landscaping business grew, so did the demands of the office. So Bill taught himself database programming to create the first scheduling, routing and invoicing software for commercial cutters. Within five years, CLIP had over 1,000 users and Bill sold this business to focus on commercial mower design and manufacturing.

GRASS GOBBLER Frustrated with flimsy grass catchers that clogged up, Bill bought a welding machine and fabricated the first aerodynamic, continuously welded, tubing frame commercial grass catcher. Other landscapers wanted to buy them and dealers wanted to sell them. Wright Manufacturing was born.

VELKE SULKY Bill’s mowing crew members were walking behind their mowers up to 20 miles a day, fatiguing and slowing down as the hours went by. Bill was inspired to develop a stand-on sulky for commercial walk-behind mowers with his mower mechanic, Jim Velke, which is now known throughout the industry as the Velke.

STANDER MOWER The Velke allowed experienced landscapers to mow all day at the top efficiency of their walk-behind mowers. But Bill and his engineering team took the efficiency and productivity of riding standing up vs. walking or sitting a giant step forward by inventing the first stand-on mower. This marked the beginning of an entire category of commercial mowers. Wright continually perfects a complete line of Standers to tackle any job.
