    At the risk of violating any terms of use of the forum, I thought it important to share email that I received from a tub plucker manufacturer in Ohio (will remain unnamed unless allowed).

    On their website, I inquired about the country of manufacture below is the thread. Of course it is in reverse order. My first inquiry is at the bottom. I have xxx out the identifying email addresses:

    Yes .. I had a USA plucker with motor available $1900+ freight

    Shame on you! I was going to buy one. But that explains the 30 days warranty.
    I am so sick and tired of buying Chinese made crap that fails and breaks. Especially metal parts. It is well known fact that Chinese metals are inferior as hell.
    I for one will gladly pay way more for quality american made products that last.
    Shame on you, again!

    Hi
    This SP1 is made in China with China made motor ..
    if you like we can upgrade USA Motor ( G.E ) for $195 more
    Why 30days warranty ?
    Try to save some money for buyer
    You can buy a Option $99 for 1 yrs extend warranty if you like
    No plucker on the market can defeather duck 100% clean only 60-80% clean
    chicken can be 99.9% clean
    If you have more question pls contact Peter 614-6072288

    Very interested in your pluckers. The SP1 is right for me. Is it ALL built in USA? Who builds the motor?
    Why only 30 day warranty? Makes it CHEAP and Like it is prone to failure!
    i will eventually raise ducks for personal consumption. which plucker can handle ducks?

    I then received another reply from an individual email that I can only assume is associated with the company.

    If you are so cheap not want to spend money to upgrade to USA motor than keep use your hand to pluck your chicken


    I was dismayed and therefore replied as is below:

    [COLOR=rgb(34.509800%, 33.725490%, 83.921570%)]Is this how you respond to customers? Really? That does not motivate me in anyway to do business with you now wether US built or not. [/COLOR]
    I think it is important Americans know where their products come from. Which is one of the major motivators for raising your own chickens is it not.

    Companies that do not respect that do not get my business.

    I agree. That is something you might think but don't say; it's rather unprofessional. Of course, you may or may not be able to judge the company based on that individual's attitude.
