According to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, sales are strong for large four-wheel drive tractors and combines. The one soft spot in the market has been the under-40 horsepower tractors. AEM Vice President of Ag Services Curt Blades says supply chain issues have the supply with U.S. tractor inventories down 37 percent and combine inventories down nearly 13 percent from one year ago. “Whether buying tractors, combines, trucks or pinball machines, there is pressure in the supply chain right now,” said Blades. “We continue to work hard with our manufacturers and the manufacturers are working closely with their suppliers and dealers to make sure there are parts available.”
