The recent surge in registrations of 50hp+ tractors continued in June, with 1,473 machines logged during the month.

This was 43% higher than the same month last year and more than a third higher than the June average over the previous five years, and the highest figure for the time of year in a decade reports the AEA.

This brought the total number of tractors registered in the first six months of the year to 6,844, up by a quarter from the Covid affected total in the opening first half of 2020 and 12% above the five-year average.
