New machinery sales in all states were strong in November off the back of a bin-busting harvest in some regions.
Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia executive director Gary Northover said November had been outstanding, with tractor sales continuing to break records and another huge month of harvester sales.
"This now sees the year-to-date figure 28 per cent above last year, with a running rate now approaching 18,000 tractors per annum," he said.
"Sales have been strong in all states, fuelled by the excellent harvest season underway and supported by the government's various company tax incentive programs."
Year-to-date sales in Victoria were up 16pc and 19pc for the month, while NSW sales were up 43pc year-to-date, and Queensland year-to-date sales were up by 25pc.
