Versatile had its roots
with the Hydraulic Engineering Company of Toronto, which was founded
in 1947 making small agricultural implements. The company expanded,
and opened a factory in Winnipeg, which was later to be used for tractors.
In 1963, the Hydraulic Engineering Company offered shares to the public
and renamed to Versatile.
Versatile's focus was large four-wheel drive tractors,
much like Steiger. In addition to high horsepower tractors, the
company had great success with the 150 "Push-Pull". This
tractor could be operated in either direction, and featured an operator's
seat the rotated 180 degrees.
farm market forced Versatile to stop operations in 1986. The company
was purchased by Ford-New Holland and resumed operations in 1988,
although with New Holland colors. With the merger of CaseIH and
New Holland in 1999, the new CNH Global corporation was required
to divest the plant. Buhler Industries acquired the Winnipeg factory
and the rights to the Versatile name, taking over operations in
the autumn of 2000. Tractors were built as Buhler Versatile. At
the end of 2008, Buhler announced that the tractors would again
be branded Versatile.
