Industrial Tractor for Haiti Recovery Operations!

What a great day!  We just bought a Ford 4500 industrial backhoe/loader!  We're now coordinating with United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) and the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance to coordinate onward movement to Port-au-Prince, where Haitian firefighters will immediately put her to work on recovery operations.  We anticipate that she will be working in the immediate vicinity of Port-au-Prince for several months.  This is a very versatile piece of heavy equipment, and there are VERY few items like this in the entire country of Haiti!  She has a brand new engine, just out of the crate, and that means her service life should be measured in decades...and why do I refer to this tractor in a feminine context?  She's beautiful, that's why...don't you think?
Thanks to our supporters for helping us in this important mission!
