i took a look at a red hawk lawn mower the other day at the fair. i know many on here dont like the fact that they are built in china, but they seem to be a pretty solid piece of equipment. deck seemed to be built just as well as its name brand counterparts, with the construction of the rest of the machine rivaling that of its name brand competitors. the only thing about this mower that seemed to be lighter duty than a toro for instance was the handlebars, but seemed to be a great machine overall. i probably wont buy one because of the dealer here in town, and i doubt that they will ever be one of the big boys with any great innovations to their respective industry, but i was impressed with the mowers nevertheless. i would have no issue buying one if the price was right either.
