I am not sure about the "inexpensive" part as I don't know your budget but  the top 10 threats can be tested using 
Acunetix - vulnerability scanner - that's what I use.

There is only one short fall with this tool it doesn't support silverlight applications otherwise its very powerfull 
specially when you use it with the add on called Acusensor which eliminates false positives.

Please let me know if there is anything else or tools I may help you with.

Subject: OWASP Top 10 penetration testing software?

Hi, for one of my websites, I have been required to use a web application
scanner that tests against the OWASP Top Ten threats. I'm looking for a
scanner that does this that is inexpensive or free.

Possible scanners I've found for this include the OWASP Zed Attach Proxy
Project, Sonar, and w3af, but none of these explicitly tests against the
OWASP Top Ten threats (at least not that I can tell).

Does anyone know of a scanner that does test against the OWASP Top Ten
threats? Thank you!
