They only sell junk here. Truper and KTC. I saw a Karcher once at Linares and they were asking 75000 pesos. They are very expensive here. I just bought one from Amazon. A Simpson MSH3125 with a GC190 Honda. USD$400 plus shipping and import tax. Ship it by boat it's only 3500 pesos. Still cheaper than buying the junk they sell here.

I use Encargo Pak.
It will be interesting to see what they charge you for taxes on 400 bucks. I've been absolutely raped on some of the stuff I've bought in the states and shipped down, both through my mail forwarder and by shipping companies

The import tax was 45%.

I think it's the electrical stuff where they really put the screws to you. I mentioned a few months back about buying a compressor for my TGM A/C that cost me more than the cost of the compressor for shipping and taxes. A little over 9k for a 120 dollar part.
