Ag Sales DataApril marked yet another solid month for ag tractor and combine sales, according to data released late last week by AEM.

Total farm tractor sales in the U.S. saw a jump of 12 percent, compared to this time a year ago, while the 4-wheel-drive category saw an increase of more than 32 percent. Meanwhile, year-to-date total farm tractor sales in the U.S. were up a little more than 8 percent.

Self-propelled combines and tractors between 40 and 100 HP were the only two U.S. categories to see decreases in April, falling 4.2 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively. For the year, however, sales of self-propelled combines are up nearly 20 percent.

Conversely, Canadian retail sales of ag tractors and combines did not fare well during April. Total sales of tractors were down 2.5 percent, while combines saw a massive drop of 26.7 percent, when compared to this time a year ago.
