Registrations recovered
as 2017 progressed

The latest registration figures prepared by the FTMTA show that registrations of new tractors in Ireland during 2017 improved considerably as the year went on. The year started weakly, with a 17% drop in tractor registrations during the first quarter compared with the same period of 2016 but the market improved gradually from that point onwards, so that the overall outcome for the year was a shortfall of only 4% on 2016.
