Warning on “Gray Market” Machines


“Gray Market” are machines that were not manufactured by DEVELON, may be labeled "new" and may cost significantly less than new ones purchased in North America. These machines are sold without the consent of the manufacturer and may not meet all the EPA and safety guidelines for the North American market.

More importantly, these machines may be considered illegal and may be subject to governmental fines for operating. In addition, they may have varied parts and specifications that can be difficult to replace or repair; costing the customer much more in dollars, downtime and aggravation.

Neither DEVELON nor any of its authorized dealers have any warranty services or obligations to these Gray Market machines.

Please don’t be fooled just because the model number is the same or it comes with an English manual — it still could be a Gray Market machine. Generally, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
