KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA, Inc., showcased a pink MECHRON 2200 UTV in its booth at the World Ag Expo from February 12-14, 2013. This special edition UTV was displayed in support of breast cancer awareness, research and prevention.
Throughout the show, KIOTI Tractor accepted silent bids for the pink UTV in their booth. One winner was to be announced at the close of the exhibits. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center of Chapel Hill, NC, one of only 11 cancer centers in the nation with a Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in breast cancer.
"There is no better cause that we can contribute to than one that impacts so many of us personally," says Peter Dong Kyun Kim, Chief Executive Officer of Daedong-USA, Inc. "Our company is committed to increasing breast cancer awareness and to raising funds that can be used to advance research to find a cure."
KIOTI Tractor recently held a similar silent auction at the Sunbelt Ago Expo in Moultrie, GA. A pink CS2410 was the center of the event with the winning bid raising a total of $15,267.00, which was subsequently donated to the UNC Lineberger Center.
Since its initial launch in 2011, the KIOTI MECHRON 2200 UTV, The Ultimate Transport Vehicle, has quickly gained popularity for its wide range of features for both work and play. The UTV is equipped with standard 4-wheel drive and a fuel efficient 22hp, 3-cylinder, Daedong diesel engine. The MECHRON's 56'' wide cargo bed is the largest in its class, capable of holding up to 1,100 lbs., while its wide track, 2-inch wheels and 25-inch tires easily maneuver across rugged terrain.
In addition to the limited edition pink UTV, KIOTI Tractor had a wide-range of equipment on display including models from the company's CS, DS, CK, RX and DK tractor lines and a variety of implements and attachments.
KIOTI Tractor thanked LSG, Inc. of Raleigh, NC and Barnes Collision & Repair of Zebulon, NC for their efforts in the preparation of the pink UTV for the show.
