Alibaba

Since this site went live with their IPO, I checked them out. Hadn't heard of them before. It's essentially a chinese B2B e-commerce site, although some items are sold in single quantitys. You just set the "Minimum Quantity" to 1.

Yikes, feels like China is going to take over

Examples (no links because when I did link the URLs, it redirects to aliexpress.com):

Well, capitalism and the internet at work. The asian Amazon....

I don't think that with the unknown build quality and those prices, that they will be any sort of threat, yet.

I do think that they will have to adjust the website to display a clearer price for the product. Is that first one $100,600 or is it $100 - $600? Or is it a range based on the number of units purchased?

Confusing....

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
