Hello! Today I am going to write about the history of Versatile… Here it is!
The first tractor they made was the D100 in 1966 but that was not the beginning of Versatile.
Versatile started in 1947 but only made tillage equipment until 1966. In 1966 they started to build the Versatile D100 which has 100HP.
In 1967 they started to build the G125 which had 125HP.
In 1969 they started building the 118, 125, and 145 models, which had 118, 125, and 145HP.
In 1973 they started building the 700, 800, 850, and 900. My Uncle Jerry had a Versatile 900 a few months back. The 700 had 220 hp, the 800 had 250 hp, the 850 had 280 hp, and the 900 had 300 hp.
In 1977 they built the Big Roy which had 600hp but was too big in its time so it was cancelled.
In 1989 Ford bought Versatile. The first Ford Versatile built was the 846 built from 1989 to 1993, which had 230hp.
In 2000 Buhler bought Versatile from Ford and made the Buhler Versatile 2425 and some other tractors. The 2425 has 425hp.
In 2008 (the year I was born) Versatile bought Versatile from Buhler, and Versatile made the Versatile 400 and three other smaller tractors. The 400 has 400hp
In 2016 Versatile changed its colors to red, black, and yellow. They made the 550 and other very large tractors. The 550 has 550HP.
In 2017 they returned to their official 1966 heritage colors but added black. This year they made the models: 380, 400, 430, 460, 520, 570, 610. The 610 has 610 HP.
In 2019 Versatile started making the Nemesis series and also got hired by Kubota to start the M8 series.
My favorite tractor from this essay would be the M8-211 but since it has to be a Versatile Il go with Uncle Jerry’s Versatile 900
