  • Livestock trailers: haul livestock including cows, horses, hogs, etc.

Do farm trailers have to be registered?

What is my ag trailer worth?

The value of your ag trailer can vary based on type, make, year, location, and length, among many other factors that are specific to the model. Understanding what equipment is worth is a challenge many farmers come across. In fact, 82% of the farmers we surveyed said it was their #1 pain point when buying and selling farm equipment.

With that challenge in mind, Tractor Zoom built a feature called Equipment Lists, which allows farmers to quickly and accurately gauge the value of their ag trailer (for FREE) based on its unique specifications. We leverage over $20B in equipment sales, and update our transaction data weekly, so farmers always have up-to-date auction and retail values to gauge what their ag trailer is worth in near, real-time.
