Versatile was the first company to mass produce articulated fourwheel drive tractors, starting back in 1966. With more than five decades of continuous tractor production, Versatile tractors are designed to be simple to operate and easy to maintain and service.
Known around the world for durability and reliability, Versatile four-wheel drives use industry-leading suppliers to ensure the best performance with the least amount of downtime. Cummins is the exclusive engine supplier for Versatile, a successful partnership that has been growing for nearly 50 years.
THE REASONS WHY!
Simple to use
Efficient drawbar pull
Transmission and engine
Largest cab in the industry
Low commodity prices
Maximizing profits is not only about yield, it goes all the way through the farming process including operational costs. Versatile tractors maximize pulling power at a lower RPM due to torque rise and power bulge, resulting in more efficient operation and reduced fuel consumption. Versatile offers competitive prices with excellent resale value.
Limited farm labour available
It can be difficult finding farm labour these days, so when you do, you want to know that they can quickly adapt to the job at hand. Versatile tractors minimize the learning curve for new users with logical, reliable controls that are simple to operate.
It takes less time to train new staff on tractor function and operation. Daily maintenance is easy with accessible service points and sight gauges.
Larger farms have to get more work done in shorter time frames
Other than weather and commodity prices, one of the biggest concerns for modern agriculture operations is efficiency. Versatile tractors are known world-wide for durability and reliability due to the use of common components and design simplicity, resulting in less downtime. Daily and regular maintenance can be completed in a fraction of the time because of this design simplicity.
The power and torque from the Cummins engine and enhancements to the Versatile powertrain mean peak performance at lower RPM’s, resulting in more efficient operation and a reduction in operating costs.
