Farm Equipment Mechanics

Employment Prospects


Approximately 45,400 farm equipment mechanics and service technicians are employed in the United States. They work in all parts of the country, but there are more job opportunities in the "farm belt"—the Midwestern states, as well as in California, Texas, and Oklahoma. Work is available with independent repair and service businesses, large farm equipment sales companies, and large independent and commercial farms. Some mechanics are self-employed, running their own repair businesses in rural areas. Most independent repair shops employ fewer than five mechanics, while in dealers' service departments there may be 10 or more mechanics on the payroll.
