Agricultural Equipment Technicians


Agricultural technicians working for the government may be able to enter a position at GS-5 (government wage scale), which was $29,350 in 2019. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that median annual earnings for agricultural equipment mechanics was $40,630 in May 2018. Hourly wages ranged from less than $12.88 ($26,790 a year) to more than $29.13 ($60,590 a year). Those working on farms often receive room and board as a supplement to their annual salary. The salary that technicians eventually receive depends—as do most salaries—on individual ability, initiative, and the supply of skilled technicians in the field of work or locality. There is opportunity to work overtime during planting and harvesting seasons.
