Since its introduction in 2017, All Certified Equipment Trading Corp. (ACETC) has sold more than 100 units of the Massey Ferguson 2168 Rice Combine Harvester nationwide, proving the preference by businesses involved in rice farming for the Massey Ferguson brand.

ACETC President and Chairman of the Board Benigno Limcumpao said the Massey Ferguson 2168 is a product of the brand’s proven technologies for harvesting grains like rice and wheat. Massey Ferguson is the pioneer for large combine harvesters.

“Like the Massey Ferguson farm tractors ACETC has been distributing in the Philippines since 2011, the Massey Ferguson 2168 rice combine harvester is durable and easy to operate, and will serve its owners and users for decades given proper maintenance,” he said.

Bhong Amoroso, vice president and general manager at ACETC, added the company carefully studied and tested the Massey Ferguson 2168 for the Philippine setting, making sure it could withstand tropical conditions.

“We at ACETC subjected the Massey Ferguson 2168 for more than a year of study and testing, ultimately getting it certified by the Agricultural Machinery and Testing and Evaluation Center (Amtec). In tropical countries like the Philippines, factors like excessive heat, dust and torrential rains should always be taken account when introducing farm equipment for use by Filipino farmers and agribusiness companies,” Amoroso said. Amtec is based at the University of the Philippines Los Banos.

Limcumpao said ACETC’s introducing the Massey Ferguson 2168 rice combine harvester in the Philippines is the company’s contribution to modernizing the country’s farming sector.

The Massey Ferguson 2168 can harvest and bag palay (unmilled rice) in just 1.17 hours over one hectare. On the other hand, at least 10 laborers are needed to harvest and bag palay in 12 to 24 hours also over 1 hectare. It is powered by a diesel engine that produces 87 horsepower and has rubber tracks.

ACETC also distributes in the Philippines are the 7600 Series for large plantation operations; the Global series that offers versatility for both large plantations and consolidated small farms; and the 2600 and 1500 series for use in non-plantation operations.

ACETC also distributes Yanmar, Kaiao and Platinum small engines for largely agriculture applications; farm implements from Kuhn, KK, SiP, FAE, Berti, Bison and CMT; GT Mobile Fast Dryers; Max Cane Loaders; Rain Bird advanced irrigation systems; and Tajima 3-in-1 knapsack type sprayers.
