    Not heard of them until now, but a quick look and they seem familar -  are they Lawnflyte/Kaaz clones ?

  • The dealer said that they are a chinese make, a couple of his regular contractors have used them and havent got a bad word to say about them... but then again he is a salesman...

    Neil, any idea on pricing....?

    As an unknown make, I presume they would be aggressively priced to get into the market, if not contractors would probably go for a know make until they gain some foothold in the UK....
  • It was around £500 for the second hand one in the shop (light use) and i think, dont quote me though, they are about £750 new. It was a good looking machine, it was one of the what we would call 'pro' range of Weibangs suited for commercial use. Sturdy looking, blade brake, single point height adjuster, 70ish litre bag.

  • True, China wouldnt normally be the first mower manufacturing country that springs to mind! But these countries have to start somewhere when moving their industries forward.

    Then again if the mowers are cr@p they can always go back to making toys covered in toxic paint.

    Ask for the details of a couple of the said contractors so you can actually contact them for feedback, "the ive sold several to local contractors and they love them is a classic line".

    Personally i try my best to avoid anything Chinese, both in terms of build quality and due to my feelings regards the politics and working conditions in the country.

    If they are cheaper than what they replicate then this will be due to corner cutting in some form.

    It's interesting there are using B&S engines on the mowers and Kawasaki engines in Chippers rather than the normal cheap chinese honda clones...

    Wheels etc look reasonable spec

    if you choose one, keep us all updated....
  • A Weibang mower with a woohoo engine? I've been giggling like an idiot all day. Nice one Fraser - made my week!
  • So the Weibang with the woohoo gone byebye?
