Quick Start Manual For A Wright Mower

If you are in the lawn maintenance industry, you know there are a lot of things to consider while on the job. Safety, grass height and irrigation are just a few. As you begin mowing, you want to make sure you do it in the most efficient and smartest way possible. Built with the operator in mind, Wright mowers are made with the most updated technology and durability. Not only does this make a Wright the most reliable mower on the market, but it also makes it one of the easiest to operate.

Whether it's your first time operating a mower or you just need a refresher, here are a few quick tips on starting your mower:

  1. Check for any obstacles in the lawn. This is one of the first things you want to do before you begin mowing. Objects such as limbs, roots or large objects need to be removed from the grass, making lawn maintenance much easier.
  2. Put on all of your safety gear. Safety is key when operating a mower. Make sure you are wearing all the proper gear, such as safety glasses, gloves, sunscreen and long pants.
  3. Adjust height blades for optimum mowing. Whether you are operating the Stander ZK™ or the Sport, you can adjust blade heights for the best cut available.
  4. Make sure the control levers are in the exact neutral position and apply the parking brake if it is not already set. Make sure to turn off the blade engaging switch if it is on. Check the engine oil and turn fuel valve to the “on” position.
  5. Starting the engine:
    Recoil start:
    Turn the ignition key to the “Run” position
    Check to see if the equipment has a separate choke knob or whether it is incorporated into the throttle control. Start the engine according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation in engine manual, keeping in mind that various models use different choke controls.
    Immediately step onto the foot platform after the engine is running smoothly. Electric Start:
    Start the engine according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation in the manual. You will need to start the engine by turning the key on the mower’s instrument panel. Do not engage the starter for more than ten seconds at a time as this may overheat the starter and the wiring systems. Wait ten seconds between attempts.
    After starting the engine according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation, 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.

These easy steps ensure both safety and simplicity when taking care of lawn maintenance. Whether you're mowing a large lawn or cutting a smaller area, going through this list will make your job much easier and more efficient. Wright mowers are rugged and durable machines.
