    Yeah I have to agree with that. Go to your local bank where you have you business account or regular checking account and savings and ask them for a loan. If they know you and you have been with them for awhile getting a loan will be easier than anywhere else.

    id go to the dealer first, sometimes they offer the best interest rates, my new mower is 0% for 18 months. builds great credit too for your next item. banks work but have high rates. you can also try your credit cards, they offer loans and balance transfers at fixed rates,depending on how old you are and how much credit you have. build credit though, its a good thing.

    Sheffield Financial works with many brnds of equipment including Great Dane and EVERRIDE. 36 month's no interest and no payments for 6 months. Heck you could buy right and possibly have enough cash saved up to pay off the loan this fall before you have to start making payments!

    Buisness line of credit from your bank. You can get a certain amount. get a piece of equipment or two, Then you save the rest for CAPITOL (NOT BEER MONEY) to run your buisness. My .02 cents worth
