‘Versatile’ has been on the side of the best farm machinery for over a half century. Click above to follow Versatile’s corporate history.
The Versatile name has appeared on the best tractors in the world for almost 40 years. From the Ford ‘Versatile’ to the New Holland ‘Versatile’ to the TV140 (Tractor Versatile) bi-directional tractor. Even John Deere tried to acquire Versatile in the mid-eighties!
The biggest tractor companies in the world have always recognized the value of the name – Versatile.
“In the fall of 1965, we thought we’d handle another product. It was the model 100 four-wheel-drive tractor. I’d been fascinated by the possibility of producing an inexpensive, four-wheel-drive tractor for several years and we’d kicked around its potential. The trick would be to design one that wouldn’t be a luxury. To mass-produce such a machine was a radical move. The majors were saying that four-wheel-drives were unwarranted but what they were really saying was that they were timid. Their decision makers were unwilling to take risks. Innovation was restricted by their ponderous system of justification.” – Peter Pakosh
