100,000th Versatile-built tractor

The 100,000th Versatile-built tractor rolled off the line in Winnepeg, Manitoba, on Oct. 26, 2011, a significant milestone in the company’s 45-year history. The tractor was a Versatile 305 row-crop. The exhaust grille, exhaust tip, and steps were chrome-plated. The special mural decal features a sampling of all Versatile tractors built since 1966, though the 100,000 number includes some tractors for New Holland, Fiat and Caterpillar. The selling dealer was Yost Farm Equipment, represented by Jon Yost. The buyers, three generations of farmers, were Rodney, Chris and Cade Bracelin from Goodlands, Kan. They farm roughly 10,000 acres.
