Growth in Farm Tractor Unit Sales Continues in the U.S. and Canada

Farm tractor and self-propelled combine unit sales continued to grow across the U.S. in November. 

Data from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers also shows small to mid-size units continue their sales growth in Canada. 

Total farm tractor sales in the U.S. rose 41 percent in November when compared to last year, while U.S. self-propelled combine sales grew 33 percent. 

U.S. four-wheel-drive unit sales nearly doubled in November, up almost 92 percent to 201 units, now up 4.7 percent year-to-date. 

100-plus horsepower unit sales also rose in November, up 24 percent, which keeps sales for the big units in positive territory for the year at up 1.2 percent. 

Total year-to-date farm tractors out the door are up 16 percent in 2020, while combines are now up 6.4 percent on the year. 

Canadian tractor sales saw their biggest jump in the under-40 horsepower units. 

“On the whole, this sales report continues the generally positive trends we’ve seen since April,” says Curt Blades, Senior Vice President of Ag Services at AEM. 

“The trend includes growth in the smaller units, while the bigger units are following along a little more slowly.”
