AEA figures released today show sales of tractors over 50hp are continuing to beat last year’s. The news is in line with positive feedback from exhibitors at many public and dealer events regarding a more optimistic outlook from potential buyers and will reassure manufacturers and dealers.
AEA statement below;
Month : 1,038 Units +3.1% change (compared with June 2016)
Year to Date : 6,142 Units +14.1% change (compared with January-June 2016)
UK agricultural tractor registrations (over 50hp) were again slightly ahead of last year’s level in June, at 1,038 units. This was 3% more than in the same month last year, which might be regarded as a positive result given the uncertainty caused by the General Election result and the start of Brexit negotiations. After a very strong first quarter, growth has slowed but the total for the first half of the year was still 14% up year on year, at 6,142 units.
