Sandhills Global’s Q2 Market Update Offers Actionable Insights for the Construction, Agriculture & Commercial Trucking Industries

LINCOLN, Nebraska — July 3, 2020

Sandhills Global announces its newest quarterly market data update, which includes forward-looking insights based on the company’s Sandhills Used Price Index, a principal gauge of the average estimated market values of used assets—both currently and over time—across the construction, agricultural, and commercial trucking industries. The Q2 2020 update and subscriptions to all market data reports are available through Sandhills.

Powered by FleetEvaluator, Sandhills’ proprietary asset valuation tool, the Used Price Index provides useful insights into the ever-changing supply-and-demand conditions for each industry. Buyers and sellers can use this market information to maximize returns on acquisition, liquidation, and related business decisions.

The accompanying charts provide a sample of the data included in the current market report. As illustrated in these charts:

  • The U.S. commercial trucking market continued its free fall throughout Q2, highlighted by a 15.72% year-over-year decline in used sleeper and day cab truck values.
  • The 1.91% YOY uptick in the U.S. farm equipment market, which includes 100-horsepower or greater tractors, combines, and planters, shows a slight improvement in values for machines in the ag industry.
  • Heavy duty construction equipment values took a hit during Q2, dropping 6.03% YOY.
