Wright ZXT: Built for the Biggest Mowing Jobs

What do you want most from a ZTR mower? More power? Wider decks? Less maintenance? A bigger fuel tank? The new Wright ZXT has all that, and more. Built for the demands of the toughest commercial customers, this new line of mid-mount ZTRs offers some of the best performance you can get from a mower today.


This mower has a 40 HP Vanguard Big Block V-Twin with EFI and electric start. Vanguard Oil Guard comes standard, which adds an oil cooler and extends oil change intervals to 500 hours. The ZXT has a built-in oil drain for mess-free changes. Refueling is also infrequent, thanks to a 15.5 gallon gas tank. Wright replaces the stock air filter box with one from Enginaire. This triples the life of the filter.
The drive system uses Hydro-Gear 16 cc pumps and 18 cubic inch planetary drive motors. The hydrostatic drive holds a total of 8 quarts of oil and has built-in filters. The fluid and filter only needs to be changed every 1,000 hours. The ZXT has a top speed of 13 MPH. The engine is forward mounted, shortening the area behind the rear wheels for better maneuverability.


The ZXT uses Wright’s Aero Core Decks. Available in 52, 61 and 72 widths, these constructed decks have a cutting height ranging from 1.5 to 6 inches. This height is selected using pin rows. Just put the pin in the slot you want the height to be, and use the foot pedal to lift the deck into place. The lift also allows the operator to raise the deck to its highest position momentarily to get over curbs. A rubber side discharge chute won’t scrape up fencing, and it allows the deck to squeeze into tight places. The caster arms are 2.5 times larger than the industry standard, which helps support the deck.

Comfort and Control

The seat on this mower is fully adjustable, and it rides on a long travel suspension with its own spring and shock.
Large pneumatic turf tires come standard, as do anti-scalping wheels for the deck. Optional tweels and dual wheel options offer more traction on slopes and wet grass.
The ZXT has a hands-free parking brake that engages when the steering levers are opened. This ZTR also has an integrated tow hitch, letting you pull seeders, sprayers and other utility trailers.
