* Facilitated by financing options made available through an arrangement with Captive Finance, including flexible terms and payment plans.

* Timed to give buyers the benefit of IRS Section 179: 100-percent deduction taken this year for equipment bought before year-end. Available with a properly structured lease or loan, or outright purchase.
