“It is very easy to operate!”, exclaims Engineer Maria Lourdes Mateo-Mundoc, a Sourthern Cagayan Research Center Engineer who tested out one of Yanmar’s products during a recently concluded Family Day.

This was a new addition to the format that Yanmar Philippines Corporation (YPC) has during its Family Day activities. Guests and participants were assisted by YPC’s technical team with the use and operation of some of the demo machines during the event. In Mundoc’s case, the machine tested was the AP4 walk-behind rice transplanter. Once the participants tested the machines, they event’s emcee encourages them to share their experience to all in attendance. All who tested the machines had the same general feedback: in those brief moments of interaction, they were all pleasantly surprised at how comfortable or how light or how easy it was to operate the machinery.

YPC has conducted a total of four Family Day events all over Luzon, the largest Philippine island located in the north of the country. There were a total of 461 who participated in the events. This was an opportunity for Yanmar to display solutions to the Rice Value Chain Machinery in action in the field and also as static displays where participants could inspect the rice transplanters, tractors and the rice combine harvesters more closely.

True to the objectives of our first Family Day, the morning was filled with events that all members could enjoy and ended with a meal shared among all.   The YPC Family Day events were full of smiles and laughter all around.
