Renting vs. Buying Heavy Farm Equipment: Key Benefits to Consider

3 minutes estimated reading time


Deciding whether to rent or buy heavy equipment is critical when managing a farm or handling construction projects. At Buckeye Farm & Garden, we understand the numerous challenges of managing finances and equipment needs. That’s why our comprehensive rental service is designed to help our customers maintain flexibility, reduce costs, and increase efficiency. Let’s explore the advantages of renting heavy equipment over buying it.

Financial Flexibility

Renting equipment provides significant financial benefits. It dramatically reduces upfront costs since purchasing heavy machinery can be a considerable capital expenditure. With rentals, you can use the equipment you need without the burden of a significant initial investment. Instead of locking up your capital, you can use it to invest in other aspects of your business.

Access to Modern Technology

At Buckeye Farm & Garden, located conveniently at 6128 State Route 39, Millersburg, Ohio, we ensure our rental equipment, like Massey Ferguson tractors or MT52 Dingo with attachments, are of the latest models. This means you have access to modern technology with improved efficiency and compliance with current environmental standards without the depreciation costs of ownership.

Maintenance and Repair Savings

Owning heavy equipment comes with its maintenance and repair costs. You don’t need to pay these additional expenses when you rent from us. Our rental agreements cover maintenance and repairs so you can focus more on your operations. This saves money and the time you would spend scheduling repairs and maintenance.

No Depreciation Costs

Equipment depreciation is a significant hidden cost of buying heavy machinery. Rentals eliminate this concern. You can return the equipment after use without worrying about its decreasing value or the hassle of trying to sell it later.

Flexibility and Response to Project Demands

Given the nature of agriculture and construction work, your equipment needs can change from one project to another. Renting equipment like the Genie Z-45 Articulating Boom Lift or the JLG 600S Telescopic Boom Lift allows you to adapt and scale your machinery requirements based on your immediate needs. This adaptability is vital for staying competitive and efficient in dynamic market conditions.

Try Before You Buy

If you are considering purchasing a piece of equipment, renting allows you to test it on the ground. This hands-on experience can be invaluable in making an informed purchasing decision, ensuring the equipment fits your needs before making a significant investment.

Convenient Access to a Wide Range of Equipment

At Buckeye Farm & Garden, we offer a variety of equipment for rent, including tractors, loaders, tillers (like the King Kutter Tiller), brush hogs, fertilizer spreaders, and more. This variety allows you to access a wide range of high-quality equipment as and when needed without the cost and maintenance headaches associated with ownership.
