Steady surge in tractor sales

Tractor sales for the first quarter of this year seem to be following the same highs as 2007.

So far this year 3462 tractors over 50hp have been registered – 3% more than the same period last year, according to the AEA.

It is a particularly promising first-quarter average given that things didn’t look too rosy at the end of February when sales dropped by more than 10% compared with 2007 results. So it’s just a case of getting hold of kit – some firms reported order lists running into 2009.
