Farm Equipment Mechanics


Farm equipment mechanics had median hourly earnings of $19.54 in May 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This figure translates into a yearly income of approximately $40,630. The lowest paid 10 percent of farm equipment mechanics earned less than $12.88 per hour ($26,790 per year), while the highest paid 10 percent earned $29.13 or more per hour ($60,590 or more per year). Exact earnings figures are difficult to determine because farm equipment mechanics do not generally work consistent 40-hour weeks throughout the year. During the busy planting and harvest seasons, for example, mechanics may work many hours of overtime, for which they are usually paid time-and-a-half rates. This overtime pay can substantially increase their weekly earnings. However, during the winter months some mechanics may work less or they may be temporarily laid off, reducing their total income.
