GRIT Editor Hank Will at the wheel of his 1964 IH pickup.It’s hard to believe that the second day of the 2010 National Farm Machinery Show is more than half over – this much anticipated, annual Louisville, Kentucky, gathering has been another booming success, in spite of the weather and economy.

I arrived on the show floor yesterday amidst throngs of eager, interested folks with addresses on all avenues of agriculture and spent quality time with a few movers and shakers in the industry. Strong companies such as Bobcat and KubotaMassey Ferguson and McCormickCub Cadet and New Holland have weathered the economic storm with sufficient fettle that they’ve managed to roll out new equipment of all kinds.

Sr. Vice President for Sales at Cub Cadet, Nathan Walker, says that his group is guardedly optimistic that the economy is improving. His dealers, who handle everything from consumer lawn and garden equipment to commercial landscaping and turf maintenance products to a full line of Cub Cadet-Yanmar compact tractors, are seeing strong demand already this year. 

Rodney Miller, CEO of McCormick-International USA, makers of a full line of compact, utility and farm tractors agrees, indicating that, although investment capital is still very tight, lenders are beginning to look for some opportunity – though their comfort-level hurdle is still pretty high. Manufacturers seem to universally agree that, while large equipment sales remain strong, significant opportunities exist with the smaller acreage machines. And that bodes well for all of you who are in the market for compact machinery. If you are in the market for a compact tractor, side-by-side utility vehicle or other piece of machinery – now is a good time to make a deal at your local dealership.
