Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat – I’m a dog person. I can’t say it runs in the family though. On my mom’s side of the family, there are two households that have 2+ cats. Yes, we do get along, but the debate rages on… We all love our furry friends, no matter if we’re cat people or dog people. In fact, we love them so much that we’re spending record amounts on their well-being! http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/americans-will-spend-more-60-billion-their-pets-year-n390181

We also know that professional arborists require an assortment of gear to successfully complete their job – sometimes their safety depends on it (http://www.climbingarborist.com/blog_2lines.php). If you’re reading this far, you’re probably a professional arborist yourself, and you may be thinking about a few pieces of equipment in your arsenal that could use an upgrade, or maybe you’re ready to pick up some saws and pruners that you’ve been lacking. We certainly know that there are places out there that you can find a good selection of WHAT you need (like http://www.wesspur.com/) but we know acquiring your new equipment can be a pretty expensive ordeal. But you want to keep your business growing! Don’t let outdated equipment or a lack of equipment in general be what holds you back from success in your industry.

What if businesses could have more or better revenue-producing equipment in service this year for a far lower net investment? Would it change how they look at your business? Bid on new relationships? Grow? In December 2015, Congress brought back the strength of the Section 179 Tax Deduction for businesses. Under the “Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015,” the Section 179 limit is expanded to $500,000 with additional benefits of bonus depreciation for amounts over $500,000. The new law will make this a permanent change, and that was really big news!

Crack open a cold one, let’s celebrate a milestone! According to the Brewers Association, the number of breweries in the U.S. just crossed the 5,000 mark in the fourth quarter of 2016 in the United States. That’s not all, this is a NEW RECORD beating out previous records from 2015, and (believe it or not) 1873! Maybe let’s crack open two.

In a recent independent survey of 1412 Small Business Owners (less than $10,000,000 in revenue) that make at least 2 equipment purchases per year…

  • Companies that pay cash for equipment keep equipment longer
  • Companies that pay cash for equipment have higher maintenance expenses
  • Companies that pay cash for equipment have more equipment down time
  • Companies that pay cash for equipment have more employee turnover

And while these events are occurring, small businesses are perhaps missing the single biggest negative impact.

We were doing a little market research into turf equipment and found a website that enlightened us on the massive quantity of equipment involved in professional landscaping work, and we’re not going to lie, we got a little sidetracked looking at all the benefits of these exotic pieces of equipment and how they can aid any landscaping professional improve their craft. We almost got excited enough to purchase our own tools to help us in our amateur hour project of keeping our newly laid sod alive outside our office… maybe we’ll leave that to the professionals… and just hope for a little more rain.
