April tractor sales up

TRACTOR sales registered for the month of April were 6.6% up on April 1994, says the Agricultural Engineers Association.

This brings the year-to-date total to 6272 – a healthy 6.8% increase on the same period last year.

The AEA predicts tractor sales will continue to show an increase on last year but only until the summer, after which a decline is expected. Overall, this years total sales for tractors of over 40hp is likely to be very nearly the same as last year.
