Versatile Tractors
[10173]
AUD $70.00

Peter Pakosh was born to poor immigrants I and raised on a remote Canadian farm. This is the story of his dream of making farming easier for his family and farmers everywhere. Today, his Versatile farm machinery company is recognized the world over for its outstanding product line. Young Pakosh left the farm to take a job as a draftsman for farm implement giant Massey Harris in Toronto but soon began designing and producing grain augers and sprayers in the basement of his small Toronto home. He co-founded Versatile with his brother-in-law, and by the late 1970s, they had captured 30 percent of large tractor sales in North America. Versatile was the first company to mass-produce four-wheel-drive tractors and the first to develop the bi-directional tractor (pushing or pulling with equal power). The company has long been a leader on the global agricultural scene, and Ford, New Holland and Fiat have all had ownership roles in Versatile. Today, the company thrives as Biihler Versatile Inc. and is recognized for its innovation and dependability. Lavishly illustrated with contemporary and archival photographs, as well as selections from company catalogs from decades past, this book is a must-have for any tractor farm history buff.
