Machinery Pete Dissects the Newest Tractor Trends

July 26, 2016 10:22 AM

What’s hot with used equipment? Used farm equipment expert Greg Peterson – a.k.a. “Machinery Pete – says some “fascinating data” has turned up on over the past week.

Machinery Pete points to combines as one example.

“At, we have 860 late-model combines with less than 500 hours on them listed for sale,” he says. “So there are some good opportunities to buy.”

The top 5 states searching for combines on the website are Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio, he adds.

As Machinery Pete continues to talk with dealers across the country, he says the general vibe has been “a little slower” throughout 2016. Even so, he finds two categories – smaller HP tractors and older tractors – to have some intriguing momentum building. He recently sat down with AgDay TV to discuss.
