The on-going technician shortage could have an impact on dealers’ parts and service revenue in 2023. A Sept. 21, 2023, Farm Equipment text poll asked dealers what percentage of their annual parts and service revenue they estimate will be lost this year by the inability to fill open tech positions at their store. 

Just over 30% of respondents estimate a 10-19% of their annual aftermarket revenue could be lost this year because of the issue. About 22% of dealers said 20-29% of revenue could be lost. Just 4.3% of dealers said they expected a loss of 40% or more.
