Spring course machinery finance deals launched
Various golf course machinery suppliers have launched finance deals to reduce the cost associated with product purchases.
For example, John Deere Financial has two new spring finance programmes for UK customers, covering the John Deere 2500B triplex greens’ mower and the 2500E electric hybrid model, as well as the commercial 997 zero-turn mower.
With the first, interest free scheme, golf clubs may order a new 2500B or 2500E greens’ cylinder mower from John Deere dealers at any time from now until May 31, 2013, with no need to start payments until October 2013. The terms are for zero + six quarterly payments at zero per cent finance.
The second scheme also runs until the end of May 2013, with customers making four plus 44 monthly payments at 1.8 per cent interest for a new 997 ZTR front rotary mower. With both schemes, finance is limited to 50 per cent of the machine’s retail value.
“In the current economic climate, financing new equipment can help any business to forecast and fix their capital investment costs, while also taking advantage of the latest available technology,” said John Deere’s turf division sales manager Joedy Ibbotson. “These new programmes are designed to help golf clubs to access the finance they need to purchase new equipment and keep their businesses running efficiently and cost-effectively.”
Meanwhile, Kubota has launched a spring cashback offer on a range of its ride-on mowers.
Available until June 30, purchasers of the Kubota GR2120 can get £300 cash back, while £200 cash back is being offered on the GR1600 and T1880 ride-on mowers.
All three of the ride-on mowers offer power and precision, with exceptional fuel efficiency to ensure longer working periods.
The GR2120 is priced from £7,600 plus VAT, the GR1600 from £4,500 plus VAT and the T1880 is £3,460 plus VAT. All three are available nationwide from a number of Kubota stockists.
