Gift from Taiwan
Both headlights are smashed, dents and rust everywhere and no battery.
The Taiwanese government gifted the Haitian Ministry of Agriculture with a hundred roto-tillers like the one above. Because we collaborate with the ministry, we were selected to receive a roto-tiller for our farm for a nominal fee. These may have been new once, but ours is a mess. One good thing is that it runs on diesel and one bad thing is that it came with no handbook. Two more good things: the large tires are interchangeable with metal ones for working in rice paddies and the fact that it is already "broken in" means less anxiety when we dent it.
