Need Radiator for Mower

My Grasshopper's Kubota's radiator has a slight leak. I know that I can take it out and have it soldered. But I don't have that much free time ( I work another full time job). My local GH dealer gave me a price of $600 for a new one. Anyone know where I can get one at a reasonable price?

AS my old boss would say, make the time I had to replace a radiator on a Hustler out front machine a few years back. 1/2 hour to remove, 1/2 to go to radiator shop to drop it off, 1/2 hour back to shop, next day 1/2 hour to radiator shop, 1/2 hour back to shop, 1/2 hour to install and test.
74 dollars to fix it, pressure test it and paint it black. my 3 hours at that time was billed at 40 dollars an hour. What is the shop rate at your GH dealer now ? What is you time worth ? Stop Leak untill you have the time
