Planting for success starts with your tractor.
This time of year, it’s all about being ready for the unexpected. And that starts by being fully connected.
New John Deere tractors are equipped with Connected Support™ technology. When activated, it gives you (and your dealer) alerts about how your tractor is running, which can help you avoid downtime plus save you time and money. What’s more, you can keep track of your tractor fuel levels and location history, and view the in-cab display from anywhere.
With your permission, your dealer can monitor machine performance and alerts to proactively diagnose any problems. Your dealer can also update software remotely to get you running on time and on schedule. And if you do need a service call, your dealer’s service technicians will know what tools and parts to bring to the field.
It’s the connection you need to help you save time and money during planting.
Is your tractor ready for planting? It pays to be prepared with the right tractor technology to make planting simple. And the proper equipment checkups to help meet your planting window.
Ensure a serviced tractor (hydraulic, fuel and air filters and greasing)
From the comfort of your cab, you can guide your tractor smoothly around each row to reach a higher level of precision and efficiency. So instead of spending your day manually steering your tractor around each end-turn and watching for obstacles, you can do the job with a lot less effort and fatigue. Ask your dealer about a product demo and for help in product setup.
*6R Series Tractors require iTEC™ machine control (headland management system) which needs to be ordered through the Tractor Configurator.
Is it better to own your tractor or other equipment? Or lease it? John Deere offers options that fit your operation best.
Our leasing options can be a low-cost, low-risk way to acquire equipment when compared to purchasing outright or taking on an installment loan. Leasing isn’t as complicated as it seems. And since it can help cash flow, it’s worth checking into. John Deere Financial knows which questions to ask to determine if leasing is right for you:
Work with your accountant/tax advisor and your John Deere dealer to determine which financing solution makes the most sense for your operation. It may even be a mix of installment financing and leasing.
Compare your financing cost.
Some believe leasing is the most expensive form of financing because at the end of the term you still have to pay the purchase option to own the machine. However, this overlooks several key facts:
When comparing costs, it’s important to take a comprehensive approach and consider all the factors involved — such as total payment costs, total costs including payments and purchase option, your internal rate of return (IRR), time value of money (TVM), and accounting and tax implications.
We recommend you consult your accountant/tax advisor to determine which financing solution makes the most sense for your operation. Structured properly, your overall lease cost can be lower than that of a loan — and much lower than the cost of paying cash.
