MF445 to Help With Typhoon Recovery – AGCO Australia Donates Tractor to Philippine Department of Agriculture
In November 2013, typhoon Yolande caused catastrophic destruction when it hit the Philippines. The powerful storm left a scarred landscape and immense hardship for local families and businesses.
AGCO Australia is very pleased to donate a MF445 fitted with a rotovator and harrow to the Department of Agriculture Regional Office in Leyte. Leyte is a small island 800kms from Manila that was severely affected by the typhoon.
The donation was presented at an official handover ceremony in mid-December, with government dignitaries and media representatives at Quezon City, Manila.
The tractor will be utilised in the enormous cleanup, which will involve rebuilding shattered local infrastructure, clearing debris and removing fallen trees.
We would also like to thank our distributors, Equity Machineries Inc., who assisted with the co-ordination of this much appreciated donation.
