Significantly increased tractor sales revealed by May figures

The Agricultural Engineers Association has today reported May sales figures for tractors over 50hp, and monthly and year-to-date figures show great optimism within the industry, despite reduced sales in February and March.

It said;

Month :  1,222 Units       +21.2% change (compared with May 2017)

Year to Date :    5,343 Units       +4.7% change (compared with January-May 2017)

The brief slowdown in UK agricultural tractor (over 50hp) registrations recorded in February and March seems to be well and truly over. Registrations in May were over 20% up on the same month last year and the highest May figures since 2014. The 1,222 machines registered in the month bring the annual total to 5,343, around 240 (5%) more than in the first five months of 2017.
