Gazing at his farm field, Jeff Shepherd, a Dalhart Texas farmer looks anxious. His concern comes as a surprise considering the good crop that stands tall in his farm. The problem is not the crop itself but the harvesting process and the preparation for the next round of sowing that has to be done afterwards. It is a laborious task to do without proper farm equipment that he cannot afford. A John Deere S680 model could have made his work easier and wrapped up by the weekend. It would have taken only 40 hours to finish. However, the costs are a bomb. Shelling out $284900, for a used one also seems a load. What should he do??
And Jeff is not the only one. Robert in California wants to upgrade his farm machinery but, only if he could sell his old tillage equipment. He is looking for buyers. Just like Jeff and Robert, there are several farmers across America looking for affordable farm equipment or having spare equipment lying idle.
High costs – Blocking the growth of the Farm and the Farmer
Many farmers across the US experience difficult scenarios when it comes to farm equipment year after year. The economic liability of buying farm machinery is far too much due to the steep prices and seasonal utility. As a result, the exorbitant machinery costs sway many potential farmers away from the business altogether while for others it is difficult to analyze where to use their capital effectively for their growth. For several farmers who invest in the big budget machinery, it becomes a burden and blockage for growth due to its inefficiency resulting from its periodic limited use.

Bridging the accessibility to Farm Equipment Gap
According to the FCA Economic Report, Office of Regulatory Policy, Agricultural and Economic Policy Team 2016, Farm equipment is the second largest asset for a farmer after farm real estate. Considering the structure of US Agriculture, the maximum inventory of total farm equipment resides in the large farms with large volume of production. As per the 2012 Ag census of the US farms, the large farms numbering nearly 110,000 form just 5% of the total 2.1 million farms in the US. However, the average equipment inventory per farm for these large farms is a whopping $1.1 million in contrast to the mere $63,000 for the other 2 million US farms. Among them are many farmers who own machinery but at the same time suffer from low margins and seasonal cash flow. The data is clearly indicative of the huge gap between farmers in the US who have access to the necessary farm equipment and those who do not. Read about Farm Mechanisation in the USA
