Will You Shop in the US for Farm Machinery this Fall?

Usually producers talk about buying equipment in the US when the Canadian Dollar swings above par. This time though the deals on US based farm machinery are being driven by the severe US drought. With the US corn and soybean harvest looking very poor in comparison to prior years, US farm machinery dealers have a major task to sell inventory numbers that were based on strong yields back in the spring.

We were not able to contact any US dealers myself but the farmer anecdotes all seem to be telling the same story. Its a great time for Canadian farmers to find some great deals from US machinery dealers if are willing to call around. One of the equipment pieces I keep hearing about great deals on is grain carts.

  1. Our “closest” dealer is in the US. Drought or no drought, if the equipment is needed and the price is right, we will but from the States. At our local farm show, we have a dealer from Wisconson who does great business in our area.

  2. Over the last five years we’ve purchased two heavy-duty pick-ups, and a FWA JD tractor w/FEL from the US. All three purchases were at a CDN$ slightly above par, no drought-related situations, however I think the general lower US economy has likely helped with the vehicle purchases. The prices are much better and it is easily worth the work of brokering them across the border, the only challenge is to secure Canadian financing using the equipment as collateral.

  3. During my recent search for a high HP. I was looking at some U.S. units. However I did find on less than 300 km from my location. I may be looking for a combine and header after spring and plan to look into units in Montana and North Dakota.
