Versatile is a Canadian brand of agricultural equipment that has produced augers, swathers, and combine harvesters.In the 1960s, it was an independent operation, founded by Peter Pakosh and Roy Robinson, that had 70% of the 4WD tractor market. Versatile was the first company to mass-produce articulated four-wheel drive tractors, starting in 1966 with the D100 and G100 four-wheel drives. Those ground-breaking tractors were primitive by modern standards, with a 6-cylinder diesel or 8-cylinder gas engine producing 100 horsepower. 1966 models sold for less than CA$10,000.

  • Versatile is a Canadian brand of agricultural equipment that has produced augers, swathers, and combine harvesters.In the 1960s, it was an independent operation, founded by Peter Pakosh and Roy Robinson, that had 70% of the 4WD tractor market. Versatile was the first company to mass-produce articulated four-wheel drive tractors, starting in 1966 with the D100 and G100 four-wheel drives. Those ground-breaking tractors were primitive by modern standards, with a 6-cylinder diesel or 8-cylinder gas engine producing 100 horsepower. 1966 models sold for less than CA$10,000. Daniel Pakosh also developed the first bi-directional tractor in the world. The Versatile 150 launched in 1977. The Versatile brand, known historically for four-wheel drive tractors, has expanded to include front-wheel assist tractors, self-propelled sprayers, precision seeding & tillage equipment, and combines. In its earlier days (1970s to 1980s), the company made iconic tractors colored red, yellow, and black. The tractors were also known for their flat, boxy appearance, and hardly any curvature as seen on modern tractors. A great example of this is the Versatile 856 (Pictured Below). Four-wheel drive demand increased significantly, with Versatile becoming one of the leaders in four-wheel drive development and production. By the late 1970s the Versatile lineup included tractors ranging from 220 to 330 horsepower. With the 1980s came an expanded line of four-wheel drive tractors that stretched to 470 horsepower in the Versatile 1150. They entered the race to build the largest tractor in the world with "Big Roy", named after one of the founders, in 1977. Roy produced 600 HP on the draw bar. In 1987, Versatile sold out to Ford, who later merged with New-Holland. After the acquisition of Versatile, Ford replaced the colors with their iconic Ford tractor blue. Along with this, the decals were replaced with the Ford name as well. Through out Versatile's time under Ford-New Holland, various changes and updates were made to the line. Two of the most notable changes were the transition from the flat square sheetmetal, to a more rounded and modernized design, and the additon of a powershift transmission. After the merger creating CNH, Versatile was then sold to Buhler Industries Incorporated, returning the iconic red to the tractors, but replacing yellow with white. On November 1, 2007, Combine manufacturer Rostselmash Inc. acquired 80% of the common shares of Versatile and it was announced that the Versatile brand name will again be the sole name associated with the tractor division.
