Nearly 360,000 total tractors and combines left dealer lots in 2021 in North America. U.S. and Canadian unit sales of ag tractors and combines finished 2021 with gains of more than 10% in nearly every segment in both countries.
According to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, U.S. total farm tractor sales gained 0.3 percent for December compared with 2020, while combine sales for the month saw a gain of 25.3 percent. Those gains contributed to a total gain for the year of 10.3 percent for tractors, and 24.7 percent for combines.
In Canada, tractor sales in December grew 10.5%, while combines fell 17.6% year-over-year. However, total sales for 2021 were up 19.4% for tractors, and up 23.1% for combines.
“Sales gains over an already-successful 2020 came despite the supply chain issues and workforce challenges that made 2021 a challenging year for manufacturers,” said Curt Blades, Senior Vice President of Agriculture Services & Forestry for AEM.
