Special Edition Honors Brand’s Legacy
May 28, 2010
As the chapter in AGCO history comes to a close for AGCO orange tractors, the models produced in 2010 have a special way to acknowledge the end of Persian orange.
Customers will receive an AGCO Tractors Legacy Edition gift kit sent by participating dealers.
For the final year of production, 2010 models of AGCO DT, RT and LT Series tractors will have a medallion representing the legacy of the brand. Designed to mount on the grill of the tractors, it includes the AGCO logo surrounded by the logos of Allis Chalmers, Oliver, White, Minneapolis-Moline and Cockshutt.
In late-2009, AGCO announced the decision to phase out their line of orange tractors and implements branded and co-branded with the AGCO name. Moving forward, AGCO Corporation will focus on the Challenger and Massey Ferguson brands in North America.
