Toro announces New Finance Deals to meet demand for flexible methods of acquiring and looking after expensive turf machinery.
The ever-increasing importance of the role of finance in acquiring and looking after valuable turf machinery these days is reflected strongly in Toro's Saltex display.
They will announce as many as three new finance schemes at the show - from Toro Protection Plus and new purchase finance deals to a new scheme for those who prefer to hire rather than buy their equipment.
Toro Protection Plus is a brand new plan that applies to Toro machinery two years after purchase. Described as the industry's most comprehensive protection policy, it allows customers to protect themselves from unexpected repair bills, while safeguarding their investment and leaving them free to manage maintenance budgets to the penny.
It is available to cover both new and pre-owned machinery, subject to them having been fitted with genuine Toro parts and serviced by an authorised Toro dealer or service centre.
Toro Triple Finance is a new purchase finance scheme designed to give buyers complete flexibility over how they pay for new machinery they are planning to buy in the near future. The scheme offers three different payment options to suit customers' individual budgets and circumstances - either settlement in full, three annual payments, or 36 monthly instalments. It is available on new products ordered before 20 October this year.
The third scheme is a new Operating Lease arrangement, which can include maintenance, for those customers who prefer the machinery hire route to outright purchase and ownership.
On the new product front, two new tractor-mounted ProCore aerators will make their debuts. The new ProCore 864 and 1298, replacing the old 660 and 880 models, are quicker, quieter and smoother in operation. The ProCore 1298 version is also designed to flex in the middle to closely follow ground contours, ensuring an even coring depth.
Toro Irrigation will feature a new TDC (Turf Decoder Controller). Similar to the company's new GDC controller system for golf, TDC is ideal for sports grounds, large intricate sites, long plantings and industrial park boulevards. It has been designed to provide a durable, cost-effective alternative to traditionally-wired irrigation control systems. TDC uses a two-wire path to communicate to buried decoders, is vandal resistant, and easy to install and expand.
Also being unveiled by Toro Irrigation is TriComm - a new internet-based off-site control system - and the new turf cup for in-pitch irrigation systems which fits Toro's TR range of sprinklers.
The stand will also feature a comprehensive range of the company's commercial and consumer turf maintenance machinery.
