Has anyone used/are using the DEK commercial WB mower? I like the looks and specs on the mower (36" with Honda GXV), but would like input if it is available. I tried a search, but came up with nothing. Thanks in advance! :)

DEK is a Chinese mower. This is straight from their webpage:

DEK Heavy Duty Power Equipment is a trademark of GXi International, LLC. GXi has exclusive North American distribution rights for DEK branded power equipment from D&J Power Co. Ltd., of China.

Can it be any clearer than that?

what a pile. why the hell is home cheapo and places selling these junk mowers?? they are aiding in the death of our country. there needs to be a very serious rally cry to stop buying all this cheap crap from china. tell your congress person to vote to add tariffs to chinese made goods to make them compete realistically with our own

i love the high quality heavy duty one inch tube steal handle bars!!!! wow, so tough

Yeap, I figured so....

I'm surprised this mower seems to have an authentic Honda engine since this same company manufactures those crappy Honda knock-offs.

For the same reason Wal-Mart changed it's marketing campaign from "Made in the USA" to "Save Money. Live Better." We want our crap for cheap. :rolleyes:
