Golf golf preservation is a straightforward science and technology. In order for the course to be considered standard, there are a number of requirements for everything from turf length to play speed that will vary between fairways, greens, and rough. Employees must rely on reliable maintenance equipment to perform the job properly and be able to stay on top of the required maintenance schedules.
We will consider two key factors when purchasing the necessary equipment. First, should one buy or rent a machine? If so, should new equipment or used equipment be purchased?
Buy or rent
Many times people will ask this question when looking at a new car, but when they equip car maintenance with their commercial equipment, the decision becomes more detailed.
The main advantage of rental equipment is that employees do not have to work around the expiration date. When the rental period has expired, the latest equipment may be included in a renewed contract. Crews will have access to the latest equipment and technology without having to worry about obsolete models. However, there are many pieces of machinery that do not change with the times. The trf machine or land distributor will not go much further than a few additional features.
Therefore, buying more equipment is the best option in most cases. While loan payments can sometimes be higher than rental payments, at the end of the loan period, the equipment stays on the golf course. Well-maintained mowers and tractors will last a long time, providing many years of service without having to worry about monthly payments. Ultimately, this provides better financial flexibility because employees will only pay for the costs when using the equipment, rather than making a payment even if the equipment is not working.
Like buying a home compared to renting, year after year, owned assets are more and more valuable compared to making a new lease or rental agreement.
New or Used Turf Tools
That being said, golf equipment can be very expensive. Without a large amount of free money, most people will end up taking out loans to buy new machines. Meanwhile, the latest models offer a piece of mindset that knows that machines will start and should not have a problem for many years down the road. However, there are alternatives.
Obviously, used turf devices have the potential to be less expensive than the new model. Being able to buy a tractor directly will save you interest rates. While repairs and maintenance can be a major issue for using turf equipment, monthly savings will be more than just costly. Most of the mowers and large machines are well made and will last a long time, even if purchased and used.
In the end, these decisions are about the long run. While renting is interesting in short-term decisions and for small businesses set aside, buying the necessary equipment will always pay off over time.
