Combine Values Increasing as Inventory Continues to Decline, Reaching Lows Not Seen Since 10 Years Ago

·3 min read

LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As we near the end of Q3 2021, combine inventory levels are well below historic levels in Sandhills marketplaces, according to a new Sandhills Global Market Report. At the same time, the percentage of combine inventory sold has increased 4.9 percentage points year-over-year, indicating an increased demand for combines. The coinciding inventory trends have strongly contributed to the recent increase in combine values.

The key metric used in this reporting is the Sandhills Equipment Value Index (EVI). Buyers and sellers can use the information in Sandhills EVI to monitor equipment markets and maximize returns on acquisition, liquidation, and related business decisions.
