• The Star Tribune found that farmers are choosing to buy older tractors to save money and so that they can repair the tractors themselves.
  • A new tractor can cost well over $150,000, while one built 40 some years ago with little use could cost a third of that.
  • Tech-heavy new tractors often require a dealership repairman to make any necessary fixes.

Farmers are opting for older tractors as they’re easier to repair and cheaper than a new one, and that demand has caused a price spike for tractors built decades ago.
