- M/S/P: Track Inc would like to offer a new 2008 Tucker Terra groomer
for $150320.17 in trade for our 2005 groomer valued at $121820.17 leaving
a net difference of $28,500 +tax. The new loan would be $41,000 at 8.95%
for four years with monthly payments of $1,025 contingent on working
with bank to meet requirements. [Note: The trade value being offered
for the 2005 is more than the groomer is worth.] No risk in getting
stuck because 2005 will be going to a government entity; Track approached
us with the need. We will be paying $60 more monthly for a new machine
that will be worth more when paid off than 2005. 2008 includes options
added to 2005. Groomer available in December. If needed prior one would
be made available. Bank will not give loan until serial number is provided.
