Agricultural machines are essential for a farm to function effectively, comfortably and safely. Large companies invest millions in the purchase of modern, improved machines every year, so that work on the land brings the best results with the least work input. And how is the case for small and medium-sized farms?
The main issue is finance
It is obvious that the prices of used machines are much lower than for the new ones. A tractor or combine harvester, a several years old, often costs only 25% of the purchase price of a new machine. Such funds are much easier to obtain for small and medium-sized farmers.
As it is with new machines, while buying a used machine, we can choose leasing as a form of financing. Obtaining leasing, and its amount, is related to the financial capacity of the buyer. In this situation, it is easier to finance a cheaper machine.
Work efficiency and effectiveness
Agricultural machines are improved annually to ensure the most efficient or economical work. Manufacturers offer ultra-fast tractors, mowers that bypass any obstacle or optical guidance systems, parallel driving and electronic guidance, as well as trailers that drive to the combine to reload grain. Small and medium farmers need to consider whether such improvements will be used by them. Purchase of each machine must be economically justified so that the benefits of the replaced machine outweigh its cost.
There are brands that produce reliable machines of the highest quality. Such equipment will be in good condition even after many years of work.
Finding spare parts for machines that are several years old, is not difficult, because they are widely available.
When, after a few years, there comes a time to modernize our farm and we want to replace the machines, it will be much easier to sell a cheaper machine. Also, the difference between the price of our purchase and sale will be smaller if the initial amount was lower.
If you decide to buy a used agricultural machine, choose the equipment of a reputable company. Used equipment from John Deere, Case, Claas or New Holland that are in a good condition, can be used for many years, and their financing through instruments such as leasing will be more affordable.
