Ford Versatile

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. 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.

Versatile was purchased by Ford-New Holland in 1987 and build New Holland four-wheel drive tractors until CNH was required to divest the plant in 2000. Buhler Indutries acquired the Winnipeg factory and branded the tractors as Buhler-Versatile. In 2007, Russian farm machinery manufacturer Rostelmash acquired a majority stake in Buhler and returned to the Versatile name.
