Volvo Trucks are a common sight on Australian highways. Built in Australia since 1972, the brand is synonymous with high quality prime movers which are ideal for long haul transport applications as road trains, general haulage, livestock transport and many other businesses. But Volvo is also a manufacturer of a range of high quality construction equipment and machinery. The range is available in Australia through a 20+ year partnership with CJD Equipment.
The Volvo brand is known for innovation and technological development and this is clearly evident in the construction machinery range.
GPPE Tracked Excavators
The range of tracked excavators includes up to 24 different models so buyers can select the machine which is specific for their requirements. The range includes variations in specs from 0.66 cubic metres through to a huge 5.2 cubic metres, 15,790 to 91,402 kg and 69 to 443 kW.
GPPE Wheeled Excavators
The wheeled excavator range from Volvo has been innovated in its design to compete with tracked excavators in the lifting and digging capability stakes. The wheeled machines allow transportation from site to site without the need for an additional vehicle which can be a massive benefit in terms of cost, hassle and time. Similar benefits to what you’ll receive from using Jade Equipment Finance to arrange your equipment loan!
The range offers a number of options with booms in addition to attachments so users can optimise the equipment across a number of applications.
Compact and Mini Excavators
Getting in and around tight construction sites requires an excavator that is small in size but can deliver on performance. The Volvo range meets those demands and has become a market leader in Europe. These are multi-purpose machines that have the power to perform and the versatility to be suited to many mining, construction, infrastructure, swimming pool and residential building applications.
GPPE Wheel Loaders
The wheel loader range offers quite a number of models with variations in specs from 2.1 cubic metres to 6.9 cubic metres and 11,840 kg to 50.930 kg capacity. Top of the range in regard to capacity is the Volvo L350H which is powered by a Volvo D16E engine with a rated output at 1700 rpm. An ideal machine for quarrying, mining and infrastructure the L350H includes Volvo’s load sensing hydraulics which enhance performance and operation.
Compact Wheel Loaders
For smaller applications and sites including agricultural applications as well as construction, the Volvo compact wheel loaders offer an affordable and attractive option. The smallest model is the L20F which has the D3.1A engine, a bucket capacity of 1 cubic metre and operating weight of 4340 kgs.
The Volvo Construction Equipment range represents options for both large equipment fleet operators and sole trader owner/operator contractors across many construction project environments.
Volvo CE Finance Options
The suitability of the Volvo range of construction equipment to numerous sites and working environments and different owners and operators is matched by versatility in finance options offered by Jade Equipment Finance.
We offer a range of finance products so businesses have an option that works with their accounting method, their preferred treatment of GST and tax deductions and their balance sheet strategy.
- Equipment Leasing
- Equipment Rent to Own
- Equipment Chattel Mortgage
- Equipment Commercial Hire Purchase
Leasing and Rent to Own are both off balance sheet loans and suited to the accruals accounting method. The lender retains ownership of the Volvo equipment over the loan term but the borrower has full use of the machinery. This type of finance is considered as a way of improving the appearance of a business balance sheet. An attribute which may be attractive to some businesses, especially those starting out.
With Chattel Mortgage, the Volvo equipment is entered on the business balance sheet and as such depreciated in accordance with ATO rulings. With the current Instant Asset Write Off and temporary full expensing budget measures, Chattel Mortgage is the most suitable form of finance for businesses looking to realise tax benefits under these measures.
These types of loans differ with the treatment of GST – at what point in the equipment purchase and finance payment stage the GST is payable and claimable, and in relation to what elements of the loan are tax deductible.
While there are differences across loan types, Jade Equipment Finance provides the same level of quality lender services for all finance deals and structures loans with:-
- Our cheap interest rate equipment finance which is fixed for the loan term
- Fixed loan repayments
- Fixed loan terms
- Residual or balloon options
For operators seeking low docs and no docs options, we have accreditation with non-bank lenders that tend to be more open to negotiating special loan terms and offer greater flexibility for many businesses. Your Jade consultant will make representation to the lenders on your behalf to save you time and hassle and deliver a cost-effective workable finance option where possible
