Oh yeah, I saw that also. I am sure they have their components on them that are cheesy, but overall they are looking pretty good. Concerns would be for me, blade spindle life, hydro system, cutting height adjustment. the metal could stress crack early if its china made.They also have a stander now. I just have a hard time buying Chinese...But they are looking much better I will admit.
Not really, different design, I bought a W/L 28" in Feb, not a bad mower considering I only use it on about 12 (less than 36") gated back yards a week. not what I would call a TRUE commercial mower, but haven't had a problem yet. height adj is easy similar to the old Gravely & J/D W/B.
