2018 Big Dealer Report

2018 'Big Dealer' Report — The most detailed source of information on ownership changes and consolidation trends of North America's largest farm equipment dealers.

Since 2011, the editors of Ag Equipment Intelligence in collaboration with the Machinery Advisors Consortium have compiled the annual "Big Dealer" Report to provide the ag equipment industry with a thorough, by-the-numbers analysis into the shifts in dealer ownership, along with insight into the implications these shifts have on the industry.

In addition to a complete listing of "Big Dealers" by number of locations and major brand, you’ll also find a complete listing of shortline brands and other equipment carried by these ‘big dealers.”

This report is the result of a yearlong, ongoing examination into the dealer landscape. We’ve painstakingly overturned all the stones to mine the most valuable data — obsessing to deeply understanding and translate it in a way that you can too.
