In the 40 to under 100 HP segment, sales are off 10 percent compared to September 2021 and are 12 percent below 2021’s pace year to date. Sales in the 100+ HP segment show a bit of strength, up 9.6 percent compared to September 2021 and up 11.6 percent year to date over 2021.

AEM says four-wheel-drive sales are off 33 percent compared to September 2021 and are 10 percent below 2021’s year to date sales pace.
