Talk to Rangewell – the business finance expertsMany business lenders are wary of the agricultural sector. We know the entire lending market, and can help you find the lenders who can help and the most competitive rates for funding the equipment your farm depends on.
Your farm or agricultural contracting business operates to tight margins. You need to watch every cost - but you must use the right equipment.
Naturally, it can be tempting to try to get another season’s use out of tired equipment, but this can be a false economy. Older equipment will make you less productive, increase the risk of breakdowns – and mean safety issues that can lead to injury and liabilities.
Why traditional lending may not be the answer
New equipment, from tractors with full GPS positioning control to automated sprayers, can make a huge difference to your productivity. But purchasing equipment from your capital simply isn’t an option for most farmers and would leave you at a disadvantage if you need funds for an emergency. Traditional loan obligations could hang over you and put your business at risk if a crop failure means a budget shortfall.
Most farmers find the solution in equipment financing and leasing. These Asset Finance solutions can be arranged around your budget, giving you the equipment you need and letting you spread the repayments.
Most agricultural equipment dealers will offer finance solutions, but getting funding from an independent finance provider can often mean getting the same equipment with big savings.
Funding may be available for:
- Grain carts
- Fertiliser sprayers
- Livestock feeders
- Milking equipment
It may be possible to arrange finance for existing equipment, allowing you to reduce outgoings on items currently under finance, or to raise funds for use elsewhere. Call us to discuss the possibilities.
Hire Purchase or Leasing?
Both hire purchase and leasing can provide ways to finance the assets you need.
Hire purchase is the simplest form of asset finance. With HP, you can pay for the equipment you want for the long term with fixed monthly repayments over up to 5 years, letting you manage your cashflow better.
Leasing arrangements can be more appropriate for equipment that you may want to upgrade in a few years time, or which is very high cost. With some leasing arrangements, you have the option to own your equipment outright at the end of the term, or simply return it and replace it with an updated model.
You can also decide whether you want maintenance and insurance to be included.
Making existing payments easier
If you have an existing asset finance arrangement that means high repayments, or if you want to redirect cash elsewhere in your business, we may be able to help you refinance it. A new lender will pay off what you owe under your original agreement and set up a new finance arrangement.
This can cut repayments, spread them out over a longer term, or provide you with a cash lump sum as well as a new finance agreement.

Helping you build your profits
Cost-efficient fundingThe cost of your equipment can be spread over months or years, depending on your budget. You may not need a deposit, you retain liquidity and, with a lease, you avoid depreciation.
VersatilityAsset funding can be provided for virtually any piece of farm equipment, from sophisticated tractors and vehicles to static items, buildings and safety equipment.
Low fixed monthly paymentsLending is secured on the assets themselves, so interest costs and your monthly repayments can be reduced. Payments are usually fixed, allowing simpler cash flow management.
Using the most appropriate equipmentIf you need to set up for a new crop you can have the most appropriate equipment as you need it.
A single, predictable costLeasing and HP payments are predictable, and you can include maintenance as part of the agreement – ensuring all costs are provided for.
Secured financeUnlike other forms of finance, asset funding ensures that none of your other assets are at risk. If bad harvests or other downturns hit your business, the lender could recover their costs by taking the equipment.
