Farm equipment dealers say 2024 may be the roughest year for sales since the Pandemic

2024 does not look like it is going to be the year for farm equipment dealers.

Dealers say it may be their roughest year since the Pandemic. The Dealer Business Outlook and Trends Report shows a significant drop in optimism for new and used whole goods revenue forecasts, but parts and service revenue could hit record highs.

Dealers are not facing the equipment shortages they were in the previous report but price increases remain an issue.
