Where can I buy a used tractor? [2021 Guide]
The used tractor is becoming a treasure in this era of short supply and high demand. As newer high-tech equipment is getting delayed due to supply issues, many are scrambling to find equipment to fulfill their farming needs.
Who sells used tractors in Ohio?
Ohio has been subject to the same supply demands hitting all of Agriculture across the country. While Ohio farmers might be taking to various avenues to find used tractors, Advantage Ag asks that you check in with your local dealers. Due to the COVID-19 supply chain shortages, used equipment has been scarce to find. Tractors have been impacted a little bit more than typical.
At Advantage Ag, we have used tractor availability with such brands as New Holland and Agco. Even if these aren't your preferred brands, we feel like this is the time to see what used equipment can do for you.
What is the most reliable tractor brand?
Reliable tractors are essential for ongoing farm work. But, what makes a used tractor into a reliable one? This is a question that continues to pester potential buyers. After all, everyone wants to make sure they're buying the best equipment possible.
While reliability is mostly opinion based, there are some universal truths when it comes to dependable tractors.
- Hydraulic Capacity
- Energy Usage
What tractor brands are selling the most on the used market?
Certain tractor brands are finding a new life on the secondary/used market. During the height of the pandemic, there was a run on used John Deere and Massey Ferguson equipment. However, things have changed as we've gone from the scary times of COVID-19 and into the supply chain shortages in its aftermath.
While automakers, big ticket electronics and related device manufacturers have experienced shortages in semiconductors, the same pains have been felt in Ag. New John Deere equipment is being delivered, but without the chips needed to power the newer machinery.
Certain manufacturers such as Agco haven't been impacted in the same way. But, this is an unprecedented supply chain issue that farmers haven't really dealt with in the past. Hence, the used market for everything from pick-up trucks to tractors is blowing up. Used equipment is selling so fast that most dealers can't keep it on the lot.
New Holland is always popular on the used market. Currently, Advantage Ag has several Agco and New Holland options to check out on our lot and site. While we actively look to increase our used equipment supply to meet consumer demand, now is the time to make sure you're well supplied on your farm for 2021, 2022 and beyond!
