Kubota Tractors has reinforced its commitment to providing farmers and contractors with access to affordable equipment thanks to a new partnership agreement.
The company has joined forces with SG Equipment Finance to provide a range of low interest finance options on its popular M Series agricultural tractors and L Series mid-range tractors.
SG Equipment Finance is the asset finance arm of Société Générale Bank. The UK agriculture division was formed in 2006 to provide a full range of finance options to end user customers, dealers and manufacturers within the agriculture industry.
By changing its finance partner, Kubota has been able to secure even better finance options, which will make buying a Kubota even more affordable for its customers.
Zero per cent finance is available over two or three years on the M Series Agricultural Tractors, which encompasses six models between 60 and 130hp. Meanwhile the L series mid-range tractors are available at the low rate of two per cent interest per annum over three years, equating to monthly payments from as little as £70 (details available on request).
Speaking about the partnership with SG Equipment Finance, David Blackwood, Kubota's Sales and Marketing Manager, said: "Finance is key to allowing farmers to access the very latest equipment without committing to large capital outlay upfront - essential when you need to make every penny count.
"We are therefore delighted to have joined forces with SG Equipment Finance. And by dealing directly with a funder, we have been able to reduce the monthly payments still further for our customers."
Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Division 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 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.
