Killer Loan Rates

I know that with the economy in a slight bit of a slump this may not be the best time to invest in equipment, but if you are in a growth mode and need new toys, now's the time.

I just bought another truck (F700), and rolled an existing note in with this one, and got 5.82%!!

Can't beat that with a stick!

Yeah - I don't know about rolling old notes into new ones, but some Ford stuff is going for 0.0%, 60 months - I did some comparisons, and $25,000 at 0.0 would be about $416/month, same payment as $21,000 at 7%.

Just bought a new John Deere 250 skidsteer and trailer. Financed at 4.9% for 60 months. If I could afford a bigger payment it was even better at 36 and 48 months. 0.0% for 24 months but that is a whopping payment. No charge for early payoff though. Definately a good time to buy but you still need the money to pay for it. Gotta be careful, it's too easy to get into trouble.

New Holland has a 2.9% for 60 months on skidloaders & possibly more during October. We traded a 1999 Lx665 @ 4.9% for a 2001 Ls 180 @ 2.9% with more goodies - suspension seat!! & will only be paying $ 35 more per month. Seem to be some really good deals out & about right now.

Well, I thought I did well!! Looks like you did even better! Good for you. And congrats to everyone for not shying away from growth in light of recent events.

We'll all be really happy when everything gets cruising again and everyone else is paying 8%+ on loans for eqpt, and buying the eqpt at the usual, high prices.

Hey Stonehenge I hope you didn't go to this bank. I got a 0% for 6 month loan from them earlier this year and look what came in the mail.

This bank is right in your hometown and I can't believe they are trying to give those Killer rates.

Its Wells Fargo and they sent me a letter saying that I could have a loan for 2008.57 at 36%apr.

What a deal, the total interest paid would be 1,303.43???

Run right down to Westhill Blvd and sign up, How can you afford not to.

I know the scan is bad and I didn't feel like scanning it again.

I think I'm in the wrong business!! Might as well get your vehicle loan from Mr. Cash, or CashNow or whatever those places are called.

I use Firstar - I've used them for all of my eqpt loans so far. They typically have great rates and they seem easy to work with.
