Sales growth in both tractors and combines continues in the U.S., while a slowdown in harvesters in Canada brings overall unit sales slightly below 2020 north of the border. The Association of Equipment Manufacturers reports U.S. total farm tractor sales climbed 8.7 percent in November compared to 2020, while combine sales saw a gain of 37.8 percent, the fourth month in a row of growth near or above 20 percent for harvesters.  For Canada, November monthly were a mixed bag, with tractors climbing 1.3 percent in aggregate, while harvesters fell 56.8 percent, bringing combined tractor and combine sales down 0.7 percent, or 18 total units. Still, both tractors and combines remain above 20 percent growth year-to-date in Canada, with tractors up 20.5 percent, and combines up 28.1 percent. AEM’s Curt Blades adds, “While supply chain issues are still causing some bumps, our members continue to do all they can to deliver the parts and products to the market.”
