Chart Takeaways
Sandhills Market Reports highlight the most significant changes in Sandhills’ used heavy-duty truck, construction equipment, and farm machinery markets. Each report includes detailed analysis and charts that help readers visualize the data. The short-term value changes featured in this report also detail which age groups are driving the highest increases in each equipment category.

U.S. Used Heavy-Duty Sleeper Trucks

  • Low inventory for heavy-duty sleeper trucks continues to impact used values.
  • From November to December 2021, average asking values and auction values both increased $12,000.
  • Asking values for late-model sleeper trucks (those in the 0- to 5-year age group) were up 19% M/M. Asking values for older models (over 5 years), by comparison, increased only 3.5% to 4% M/M.

U.S. Used Excavators

  • The Sandhills EVI finds that crawler excavator auction values were up 2.62% M/M, and asking values increased 0.84% M/M.
  • Crawler excavators in the 10- to 25-year age group displayed the highest asking value increase, up 2.34% M/M.
  • Asking values for the less-than-10-year age group increased between only 0.5% and 1.0% M/M.

U.S. Used Tractors 300 Horsepower and Greater

  • Compared to other major used equipment categories, high-horsepower tractors remained flat with a 0.17% M/M auction value increase and a 0.77% M/M decrease in asking value.
  • The slight downward trajectory is a departure from the upward increases in high-horsepower tractors seen throughout Q4 2021.
  • The 10- to 25-year age group produced the highest asking value increase, up 1.45% M/M. The less-than-10-year age group was flat from November to December 2021.
