Walker mower prices

Hi, Could anybody tell me what the best price you would pay for a new Walker 21hp Diesel with 9.5 bushel catcher and 48" catching deck with heavy duty gearbox in the USA. In New Zealand I have been quoted a best price of $ 34,398 + GST tax of 12.5% $4,299.75 giving a total of $38,697,75. The GST is refundable only if you are in business. Any USA pricing would be very interesting. Cheers.

My son just bought one for under $12,000. I want to say somewhere around 11,800, but can't be sure without asking him.

at that exchange rate, it would STILL put the cost at nearly 20,000 USD, and that doesn't include the tax.
You would save money coming here to the states to buy it, and ship it back and pay the duty. LOL
