Attendees at Manitoba Ag Days in Brandon, Manitoba were the first to see three new products from Versatile. Buhler Industries, a Manitoba-based company, often uses this show as a launching point for new products for farmers in western Canada.
The Versatile Fury is a High-Speed Compact Disc. Available in widths of 25’, 30’ 35’, and 40’, it features heavy duty weight class – weighs in the 850 lbs/ft class, excellent transport dimensions of under 12’ wide (11’ 10”); 13’5” high, high speed tillage at field speeds of 10 mph, has options of 20”, 22”, 24”, and 26” blade sizes, and designed to work at 2.5” to 5” working depth. The Fury also features a flex side-to-side and front-to-back design so the machine will follow ground contours. Its radial tires provide an extremely wide footprint for maximum flotation in wet ground and minimize compaction in dry field conditions. The Versatile Fury will be available in limited quantities in 2018, and will also be distributed by Farm King as the HS8500.
Farmers in Brandon got a sneak peek at the new 2018 Versatile RT520 combine. This combine features several new features including a significantly larger and quieter cab – 30% larger, featuring new styling and LED lighting that provides more than twice the light for better visibility after dark. New side shields and engine access makes serviceability easier. The new RT520 uses the rotating concave rotary system which has proven to be one of the most efficient rotary designs on the market. Other changes include a clean grain system that is 30% larger and a new feeder chain intake. The RT520 will be available in limited quantities for harvest of 2018.
In September 1993, the first front-wheel assist tractor was assembled at the Versatile factory. This tractor was distributed around the globe and has been a segment leader, representing a significant volume since it’s introduction. In those 25 years since the first Genesis was built, Versatile has evolved the platform – the modern front-wheel assist tractor still features capabilities most requested by farmers, with power, simplicity, and ease of operation. To commemorate 25 Years of front wheel assist production in at the factory in Winnipeg, Versatile has produced a black Versatile 365, which will travel across North America throughout 2018.
