New Kubota Finance Package Means Turf Professionals Only 'Pay When The Grass Is Growing'

Turf professionals buying new mowers only need to 'pay when the grass is growing' thanks to a new finance package from Kubota Tractor and Groundcare.

The company has teamed up with Société Générale Equipment Finance to provide a range of low interest finance options on its professional range of ride-on mowers. But unlike most deals, payments only need to be made during the six months of the year when the machines will actually be in use.

Kubota has launched the deal on three of its most popular professional ride-on mowers, the F Series Professional Outfront Mowers, ZD326 Zero Turn Mower and G Series Professional Ride-On Mowers. All of theses mowers are powerful, economical and efficient and have been designed to offer contractors and groundcare professionals hours of comfort and an expert finish, whether they’re mowing a lawn, a paddock or a football pitch.

Finance is available at zero per cent over two years or one per cent over three years. This means a customer could get the F3680 with rear discharge deck from as little as £492.68 per month but because they would only have to make these payments between April and September, they won’t pay a penny between October and March.

"Our aim is to make buying a Kubota even more affordable for our customers," explained David Blackwood, Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Sales and Marketing Manager. "On this deal, groundcare and turf professionals' payments are linked to the turf maintenance season, so they will only need to pay for their equipment when it can be out earning money. When the grass growing season ends and their mower goes away for the winter, so too do the payments."

Société Générale Equipment Finance is the asset finance arm of Société Générale Bank. The UK agriculture/groundcare division was formed in 2006 to provide a full range of finance options to end user customers, dealers and manufacturers within the agriculture and groundcare industries.

Kubota is a world leading manufacturer that has been at the forefront of innovation for commercial tractors, groundcare equipment and ride-on mowers since first entering the UK market more than 30 years ago. The company’s Tractor & Groundcare product portfolio now encompasses 24 tractor models between 12 and 130hp, 13 ride-on mower models, which cater for domestic and professional users alike and five variants of the class-leading RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

Kubota machines have a legendary reputation for quality, performance, reliability and ease of operation. This is backed-up by a national network of specialist dealers who provide the highest standards of advice and aftersales service.
