    Equipment loans cover the cost of large business assets like vehicles, medical devices, computers, furniture, and machines. You can use an equipment loan to buy new equipment or repair things you already own. However, you can’t usually buy commercial real estate or spend the money on operating costs. These loans let you afford the equipment you need to start or grow your business. As you repay your loan, you’ll also build strong credit so you can get low-rate loans in the future. You may even be able to deduct the loan payments as an operating expense on your income tax return
