Inventory levels flatten in heavy truck and farm equipment markets


The key metric used in all Sandhills market reports is the Sandhills Equipment Value Index (EVI). Buyers and sellers can use information from the Sandhills EVI to monitor equipment markets and maximize returns on acquisition, liquidation, and related business decisions. For 2022, Sandhills has improved its EVI with new metrics. The data now includes actively used model year equipment, increasing the population of used equipment beyond that available in the auction and retail markets. New EVI data, already available for United Statesis also now available for Canada to better reflect machine values ​​by location. The enhanced version of Sandhills EVI requires Sandhills to reformulate the values ​​from January 2022so the previous numbers will not be comparable to the new, more relevant values.
