The development of the agriculture sector depends on the efficiency of programs applied to the several processes of production, industrialization and commercialization. In order to get this efficiency is necessary to evaluate correctly the effect of the macroeconomics variables such as inflation, interest rates and exchange rates on the productivity of a particular enterprise. In agriculture, the farm machinery is a necessary factor to increase the work efficiency but its operation costs are important; so the costs have to be estimated correctly to elaborate adequate mechanization policies. In this study, the method of cash flow is utilized expressing the costs to present value, and an analysis of sensibility is carried out to identify the factors which affect more the costs of possession of farm machinery.
