Farm and Agricultural Machinery

If you are looking to purchase more modern and up-to-date equipment to grow your farming business, or simply replace older assets, we would be delighted to speak to you about arranging the asset finance. 

By giving us a quick call and having a chat with our highly experienced asset finance expert, we can hopefully save you a lot of time and effort trying to locate a competitive quote ... leaving you to get on with all your important farm work.  

Although we can arrange finance for brand new agricultural machinery at great rates, some of these new assets often come with subsidised finance from the dealer, so we therefore specialise in assisting farmers, agricultural contractors, forestry workers and landscapers to purchase second-hand used plant, machinery and vehicles – any item up to 10 to 15 years old. 

The following list includes some of the items we have recently arranged finance for: 

  • Tractors and Trailers (all makes, models and sizes)
  • Excavators (including mini-diggers and dumper trucks)
  • Drilling, Planting and Cultivation Machinery
  • Grass Cutting Equipment 
  • Combine Harvesters
  • Ploughs, Sprayers and Loaders
  • Robotic Milking Systems
  • Livestock Handling Systems
  • Feeding Systems
  • Farm Security Equipment and so much more...

You may also be considering diversification projects to maximise the returns on your farm including Glamping Pods, Farm Shops (note finance could include counters, refrigeration, furniture etc), Vending Machines, Ice Cream Parlours and Micro Breweries.  To discuss your project, simply contact us today, or find out more about our other Asset Finance products - including agricultural buildings and renewable energy.
