Leasing is a great way to buy vehicles in Farming Simulator 19. Instead of buying a car or machine, you can "rent" it in the same purchase window - it will be a fixed fee plus the machine's working time fee, charged at midnight, with the start of each new day. In addition, you have to pay an entry fee when renting the machine. The working time of the machine is calculated in real time, so this cost does not have to be specially taken into account for equipment that you do not use frequently.
When you should decide to take leasing?
Leasing does not always have to be a good option. Sometimes the cost of using the machine in time, if rented, can be higher than the cost of buying the machine for ownership. You can sell the purchased machine for money and on the other hand - you simply return the rented machine by terminating the contract. Leasing allows you to get the machine you really need in a given moment, which you simply can't afford to buy for a full time.
- Conclusion: In leasing you choose machines that you want to use occasionally (e.g. transport vehicles, some combine harvesters, but certainly not tractors).
- Important: The machine you have leased cannot be modified. If, for example, you bought a tractor in which you would like to modify your engine to a stronger one in the future or change the wheels to wider ones, because it loses traction, you do not have such a possibility.
