I think its "very" below market price.
Any warranty given? for how long? if for a week or so, forget about buying it.
You may save a bit buying the used parts, but if the adjustable is defective, servicing or replacing the parts will cost more.

HWL anytime....

that mines adjustable just wait until u need to repair/service then u'll regret buying it....

servicing HWL is cheap and part's factory was in sungai buloh...so no problem getting replacement parts if need repair/service :adore:

The Mines
The mines and many other cheap adjustable cant be serviced normally due to the seal was welded shut...as opposed to other good adjustable where the seal was shut using clip or screw cap...so when need service just open easily...while mines adjuatable need to be cut open and welded back again...those workmanship alone would make the cost higher than buying proper serviceable adjustable... :biggrin:

^pomen_GTR^ said it right , plus heat from the weld does affect the seals even before the damper is back in service.

I went through the same learning curve, the thought of going 'budget' ended up with costlier bill at the end of the day. Simply a bad economic decision on my part.
