    I got that quote from my local dealer followed by, "... or a little less." I'm thinking $12k would put it on the truck.

    By the way, I was looking at a suspension seat and 72" deck. Maybe a 61" would be less.

    Hi all, can't believe what our dealers want for the 428D with seat, mulch kit and 61" deck..... 16,995 CDN and thats with a discount off because of the weak US dollar :confused:

    Wish someone from Grasshopper would jump in and explain this ripoff?
    I guess I am going to be spending my hard earned cash in the USA instead of Canada.
    Since they are made in the USA there is no duty to bring it across so all I pay is our 14% taxes and I'm homefree with a few extra thousands of dollars in my pocket:drinkup:

    Now if there is a dealer in upper New York State, Ohio or Michigan would like to sell me a unit I would be very interested in speaking with you asap.... want a unit before the end of my tax year....
    Here is what I require:
    Brand new Grasshopper 428D with 61" deck, suspension seat, multch kit... will pick up.... no demo units please

    Dealers please leave me a method of contact please...

    Many thanks

    Are you sure you won't consider a Hustler? I have the advantage of being a local dealer to you. I even offer free demonstrators/loaners if your machine happens to go down. That may be hard to get when you buy from the States!:canadaflag:
    Take care Al.

    Would love to own a Hustler with a Diesel. know where I can get one ???

    Secondly, I always support my local guy, but I have my limits to what I will pay in fair pricing and shopping local. 30% more in Canada then the US is just too much $$ when it come to large purchases...
