U.S. Ag Tractor Sales Positive Across the Board

U.S. ag tractor and combine unit sales returned to positive numbers across all segments. Canada’s harvesters and four-wheel-drive units fell according to the latest data from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. America’s total farm tractor sales grew 9.2 percent in February compared to 2021, while U.S. self-propelled combine sales for the month inched up 3.1 percent to 200 units sold. The 100+ horsepower two-wheel-drive segment once again led all of the segments with a 27.9 percent jump, followed by the sub-40 horsepower 2WD segment up 8.1 percent. Mid-range tractors between 40 and 100 horsepower climbed 7.1 percent, reversing the previous month’s decline. “This is another positive month for ag tractor and combine sales, up overall in both North American markets,” says Curt Blades, senior vice president of industry sectors and product leadership with AEM. “Strength in the commodity markets is continuing to drive a lot of the sales growth we are seeing.”
