    Default Saved By Zero

    Ha ha, ok...dumb commercial.

    But kubota's 0% financing is what made the difference between me deciding to get a new BX25 instead of a used BXxx. There are lots of great used machines out there, but I found they really hold their value, cause they don't come cheap (which is a good thing). I would have bought a used machine with my home equity line of credit, and over a comparable time period the interest would have been $1500-2000.

    The new features, warranty, and knowing the machine's maintenance history from day 1 are nice, too (especially the last two, for a guy who's not the most mechanically experience).

    Thanks, Kubota. Your 0% really tipped the scales for me.

    0% is what did it for me too. Looked at a wide range of used tractors in terms of price and condition. Anything decent was priced high enough that I would have had to borrow money to pay for it. Especially for a first time tractor buyer, a new machine with warranty is very reassuring and I feel like I got more tractor for the money buying new with no interest.

    Trivia fact: Saved by Zero was a song by the Fixx in the mid 80s.

    Good one, I didn't know that...or don't remember.

    BTW, I enjoy your posts, N80.

    Thank you. I've got a friend who is a psychiatrist that you might want to talk to.

    0% got me into a bigger tractor -- with a cab. It's been 6 months and the power and the cab have been a godsend.

    I'd call this post a non sequitur. Got me confused.

    So, Tractor factor, you didn't say what you bought, or is that info in some other thread I haven't seen yet.

    Yeah, I think I made reference to it, the BX25. Supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Really, I'm not worthy of it.
