Used Equipment Remarketing Roadmaps Podcast

After the Storm: A Look into How Hurricane Harvey Impacted Hlavinka Equipment

As dealers in the Southeast start cleaning up in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, we thought it would be helpful to give a podcast from earlier this year another listen to help prepare for what's ahead as the area recovers. In the spring, we shared Casey Seymour's conversation with Terry Hlavinka of Hlavinka Equipment, an 8-store Case IH and Kubota dealer in Texas about the impact Hurricane Harvey had on the dealership and its customers.

    Ask the Expert: Can the Secondary Equipment Market Keep Up with the Rising Price of Equipment?

    I was curious to see what the price increase has been for combines over the past 3 model changes. I looked through the business system, locating customers who have rolled combines every year, trying to see how pricing has evolved over the last decade. What I found was not all that shocking, but at the same time I have to wonder how long trading the volume of equipment with high used pricing can be sustained.
