iGage 10-24 3.99% Program Description (updated April 1, 2023)
The program is simple:
10% Down payment; $150 Application/Document Fee, 24-Monthly Payments,
3.99% APR Financing;
For example if you purchase an $11,000 complete iG8a Base Rover pair
with X-PAD data collection software:
$ 1,250.00 down payment (includes the $150 document
$ 429.88 per month for 24-months ($10,317.12)
$ 11,567.12 Total Payments
The Down Payment is 10%: $11,000 * 10% = $1,100.
The Document Fee is $150.
The Rate Factor is 0.03908: $11,000 * 0.03908 = $429.88 / month.
There is an initial Down Payment, then one month later the first
of 24 Monthly Payments is due.
The interest rate is 3.99% APR.
The final/total additional cost of financing including the document
fee is $567.12; which is $22.68 per month, 5.16%.
You can pay off the agreement at anytime.
There is a $5,000 finance minimum.
Hardware (like robotic total stations, GNSS receivers and accessories),
Field Software (like X-PAD, SurvPC, LandStar8) and Software (like
Carlson Survey Desktop) can be financed.
Because the first monthly payment is not due until 1-month after
the 10% down payment, this program lasts 25-months total.
This program is a reported commercial credit transaction and may
help you establish credit for a new business.

EFA / Leasing Insurance Requirements
Insurance is required for the term of extended financing:
Property Insurance for the value of the equipment naming FWEF
as the 'Loss Payee'
General Public Liability Insurance naming FWEF as 'Additionally
Insured' on leases.
We strongly recommend that you insure all of the equipment that your
business needs to be productive with 'Named Equipment Insurance' sometimes
known as 'Inland
Ask your insurance partner if the equipment will be covered if:
It is stolen from a locked pickup truck
It is stolen from an unlocked pickup truck
It is stolen while setup on a job
It is stolen from a hotel room
It is on a job site and is backed over by an earthmover
It is stolen from your office
Equipment loss due to theft is a real issue, you should never be
in a position where the loss of an instrument that you are still financing
will destroy your practice.
