IronIndex Manufacturers, analysts and lenders use IronIndexSM to understand market trends and assess changing market conditions. IronIndex acts as a barometer on the health of the agricultural equipment market. It calculates the change in actual dealer prices for the prior three model years for various types of equipment versus the original selling price. Provided in a format that allows the user to dissect the information to meet their needs, the IronIndex gives a unique perspective on the shifts in used values and relative supply and demand.

IronTrends, a web-based application, lets users study shifts in equipment values by machine type, make, model, and geography from 2007 until today. It tracks how a type, make, class or model has performed over time versus the IronIndex. Easy-to-understand graphs aid visualization of these changes and provide granular insight into competitive shifts over time, a view that isn’t available anywhere else.
