The month of March saw mostly positive numbers for U.S. sales of Ag tractors and combines, according to the latest sales data from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
Total 2-wheel-drive tractor sales for the U.S. in March experienced a 0.3 percent drop compared to March of 2018. However, under-40-HP tractors and 100-plus-hp both saw growth since March 2018 with a 0.2 percent and 4.8 percent change respectively. These increased sales were overshadowed by the 3.3 percent drop that 40-100-HP 2-wheel-drive tractors recorded, though, resulting in the 0.3 percent overall drop in total 2-whele-drive tractor sales from 2018 to 2019.
On the other hand, total sales for 4-wheel-drive tractors for the U.S. in March experienced a 13.4 percent growth from 2018 and self-propelled combined sales experienced a massive spike of 71.3 percent in sales.
