Mixed Forecast For Machinery Sales

Estimated 2WD and 4WD tractor sales for 2002 are down 3.3% compared to 2001 sales, according to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers' recently released “2002 State of the Ag Industry Outlook.”

Tractors falling into the 2WD, 100-pto hp and over category have the greatest sales decline at 4.4%. Self-propelled combines are predicted to be down 6% compared to 2001 sales, which were up 12.8% from the year before.

Farm field machinery survey results indicate farm loaders, chisel plows, disk harrows and air seeders/drills are expected to be higher this year. Planters, manure spreaders and field cultivator figures are indicating a drop in sales.
