"This scheme means operators can buy one of our top-of-the-range Hydro 124 124cm ride-on rotaries for an hourly rate equal to less than the price of half-a-pint of beer!
That's roughly £1.50* an hour…..it is ludicrously cheap when you consider the machine's superb cutting and collecting capabilities combined with its high output." says Etesia's UK General Manager, Les Malin, adding. "On the same basis, purchasing an AK85 ride-on brushcutter that will clear even the thickest of dense undergrowth could cost the operator as little as 59p* an hour!"
This and other estimated hourly rates are now published in a new Ready Reckoner from Etesia - it is designed to help end users when planning and costing up profitable contracts. All machines in the company's range are quality-built for minimum downtime and have proven long life, so the anticipated hourly cost for buying an Etesia product with a finance package spread over 5 years is totally realistic.
The sums are based on a working schedule of 30 hours a week. Prices shown on the Ready Reckoner exclude VAT and represent a maximum advance of seventy-five percent of each machine's purchase price, with payments shown* as an hourly equivalent of the actual monthly payments
"Budgets are likely to be tight this season, so buying through finance makes perfect sense," explains Les Malin, "Because the regular repayments come out of revenue, capital can be conserved for other uses. Our simple method of calculating the hourly cost of a machine enables commercial end users to budget more easily, and plan their contracts on a 'pay as you earn' basis. In this way finances are easy to control; new equipment does a better job and is more reliable; plus it presents a better image to prospective customers."
