UK tractor sales hit record seven-year high

This is well over double the number registered in the same month of 2016, mainly due to a large number of machines being pre-registered in advance on the introduction of new regulations on January 1, 2018.

 

It is likely this will lead to some suppression of the number of registrations in the early months of 2018.

 

The big rise in December brought the total number of tractors registered in 2017 to 12,033, 13% more than in 2016.

This is only the second rise in the number of registrations in nine years and the first since 2011.

 

Even without the additional pre-registrations, last year’s total would still have been higher than previous year, although the rate of increase would have been lower.

 

Further details of the 2017 registrations will be published in due course.
