Leasing vs. buying equipment
"Traditionally farmers have found it to their advantage to credit finance rather than lease farm equipment. There are, however, situations where leasing is a viable alternative. Lease plans are available for larger machinery items, irrigation systems, and semi-portable buildings such as farrowing houses or calf barns. This guide reviews the important factors that you should consider in evaluating a financial lease. The guide also shows how to compare the cost of a lease with the cost of a creditfinanced purchase. The term lessor is used to refer to the company or firm who owns the equipment. The term lessee refers to the user of the leased equipment."--First page.
