Replace Ag Equipment

Are you engaged in agricultural operations? We urge you to take advantage of funding offered by the state of California to replace old ag equipment. Navigating the Tractor Replacement Program can feel complicated, which is why our team of experts can provide you with a consultation, assistance with paperwork, and the purchase of new equipment to replace the old piece of equipment.

Engine Requirements In Old Equipment:

The engine in the old piece of equipment must be a Tier 0, Tier 1, or Tier 2 diesel engine with a minimum of 25 hp.

The new piece of equipment must serve the same function and perform the same work as the equipment that was replaced.
