This interest free credit scheme covers John Deere's full range of fine turf mowers, Aercore aerators, bunker rakes and Pro Gator utility vehicles, plus the HD200 SelectSpray turf sprayer and TD100 top dresser attachments. It also includes demonstration machines and the company's new golf equipment range, such as the E-Cut hybrid mowers featuring John Deere's unique Quick Adjust cutting cylinders, as launched at IOG Saltex (see separate release).
Clubs can order the equipment from John Deere dealers at any time from now up to 31 January 2010, and then pay two half-yearly instalments starting in May 2010. Finance is available for up to 60 per cent of the retail list price of the equipment, with availability subject to status and to the usual terms and conditions (visit www.johndeerecredit.co.uk for details).
"In the current economic climate, golf clubs are being forced to manage their costs more effectively and aggressively," says Henry Bredin, John Deere Limited's product marketing manager, turf equipment. "Fixing their machinery and maintenance budgets, or even deferring payments until membership subscriptions and green fees come in, allows them to do just this.
"With this new John Deere 0% offer, clubs can manage their budgets by deferring their first payment until after the annual subs have come in, and deferring the second until the season's green fees have been received. Alternatively, tailor made repayment schedules can always be arranged to match a club's cash flow or other business objectives."
