LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Sandhills Global market data report brings to light several interesting year-over-year value gains across the 10-plus-year age group in the used agriculture equipment, construction machinery, and commercial truck markets. The YOY value increases are tied to decreasing inventory levels and serve as a valuable reminder that equipment values must be constantly re-assessed based on changing market conditions.
Comparing December 2020 to December 2019, used agriculture equipment values were up (6.85% YOY), as were used truck values (4.94% YOY). Key segments in the 10- to 15-year age group helped to prop up these used equipment markets. Notable trends to note from December 2020 include:
