Lodi in AntarcticaSaturday, 12 September 2015
The Anctartica2 expedition bid was to drive a MF5610 agricultural tractor on an ambitious round trip from the Antarctic to the South Pole and back. In achieving the mission, MF5610 made history and became the first standard farm tractor equipped with tires to reach the Geographic South Pole overland. Lodi has taken part in the adventurous journey, supplying its front mudguard group to the MF 5610. Despite the difficult conditions – bitter cold, high altitude, snowdrifts and exceptionally rough terrain – our mudguard maintained its high performances and it has been also thanks to its reliability that the 4-week trek in the hostile Antarctic environment has been successful.
