“In our research, we found that interest rates are the single most important variable in equipment financing, but 74% of farmers also indicate that the application process to secure this rate is too cumbersome,” says TJ Masker. , senior product manager for Tractor Zoom. “We set out to implement a pre-approval process that is not only quick and user-friendly, but gives farmers access to multiple quotes so they can make the best financing decision for their operation.”
As the new pre-approval feature marks the first entry into facilitating agricultural equipment financing for its customers, Tractor Zoom is in active discussions with other industry-leading lenders and plans to continue adding additional lenders. .
Tractor Zoom offers over 23,000 farm equipment listings on its website in any given week.

BOBCAT LAUNCHES NEW CLEARANCE TOOLS
Bobcat introduced two new Brushcat rotary cutter attachments and a full line of redesigned loader drum chippers – models designed to cut, pulverize and clear debris during land clearing jobs.

These cutters allow landowners to access areas of wild growth where large rotary cutters cannot go. Models feature a high-output, direct-drive motor that maximizes hydraulic power to cut and mulch vegetation up to 2 inches in diameter.
These attachments are compatible with Bobcat small articulated loaders (L23, L28), mini track loaders (MT85, MT100) and Bobcat 450 skid steer loaders and skid steer loaders.
The redesigned loader drum chippers are available in 50-inch, 61-inch and 72-inch cutting widths and are approved for 700 and 800 series compact tracked and skid steer loaders.
The mulchers standard two-speed hydraulic motor provides increased drum torque and faster recovery of drum speed. The 50-inch and 61-inch shredders are equipped with a pressure gauge to better monitor the speed of the drums.
