February 2024 Sees Marginal Increase in 100+ Horsepower Tractor Sales in the U.S.

Unit sales of 100+ horsepower ag tractors increased slightly in February 2024 in the U.S., according to new data from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). The month recorded an increase of 2.8% compared to February 2023.  

Year-to-date data, however, reflects sales are below 2023 in total units of ag tractors and combines. Ag tractor sales dipped 14.2%, while combines finished under 18.9%.  

In Canada, combine sales jumped 27.2% in February 2024 compared to 2023, and are up a total of 6.3% year-to-date compared to last year. A total of 131 combines were sold in February, adding to the overall year-to-date sales of 255 units.  

“The combine sales in Canada are a bright spot when we take a deeper look at February’s performance,” said AEM Senior Vice President Curt Blades. “The uptick in sales of 100+ horsepower ag tractors in the U.S. also bodes well for the long-term strength of our industry moving forward.” 

Total ag tractor sales fell in Canada by 28.2% year-to-date compared to 2023.
