However, what happens when your valuable equipment faces unexpected damage or loss? That’s where farm equipment insurance becomes an essential part of risk management.

What Is Farm Equipment Coverage?

Farm equipment insurance can cover the repair or replacement costs of insured machinery and equipment following damage or loss due to covered perils. These perils can include the following:

  • Theft—If your tractor or other equipment is stolen, this insurance may help cover the financial burden of replacement.
  • Fire—In the unfortunate event of a fire damaging your machinery, this coverage can help ensure you’re not left having to pay the full cost of hefty repair bills out of pocket.
  • Vandalism—Malicious acts can harm your equipment. With insurance, you can be financially protected against such incidents.
  • Severe weather—Whether it’s a tornado, flood or other natural calamities, this coverage can help financially safeguard your investments.

It’s important to review your policy to understand exactly what it covers, coverage limits and any exceptions that may apply, as details can vary by insurer.

Who Needs Farm Equipment Insurance?
