I want to buy a new router motor (7hp high frequency spindle).
Please can you help me in finding a supplier?
My usual agent is asking for $7950 for a new one and I find it very expensive.

Welcome to the router forum.
Thank you for joining us.
Are we talking about a router, shaper or CNC machine?
7 hp and $7950 seems a hell of a lot for a router?
PS just found it on the web.... looks like a great CNC machine. I would hate to ask how much a full machine costs.
BTW. What voltage are you on in Mauritius? Would that motor require 3 phase power?
I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.

Need Help! Grateful for advice about used Gerber Sabre 408 - CNCzone.com-The Largest Machinist Community on the net!
Maybe these fine folks will steer you in a more cost effective direction.

My first name is Jean-Jacques. I am the managing director of a small sign making company in Mauritius called Zig Zag Ltd.
I am very grateful you answered, thank you.
Like you said, it is a lot of money for that type of motor. My agent sold it to me 5 years ago at half that price of $7,950= $ 3,975.
I believe this type of motor can run for +/- 5 years before getting into trouble. It runs at 20,000 to 24,000 rpm.
The price for a new cnc machine of that type today will be around $ 85,000. I bought it 11 years ago at $55,000.
If you know some suppliers (agents for Gerber equipment) in Australia who could supply me at a more reasonable price, please feel free to help. May be it is the price today ?!? I don't know. I feel it strange that the price has double in 5 years!
I just want to have a price comparison with another supplier of the same motor.
Our voltage here is 240 V. and this machine require 3 phase power.
Many thanks James.
