Versatile 936 tractors in Colorado field
I saw this 2 Versatile 936 4wd tractors in North-east
Colorado. They look like twins, but one has a Ford badge on
the grill and the other a Versatile badge. Can anybody tell
me why is that?

Re: Versatile 936 tractors in Colorado field
Ford (later New Holland and eventually Buhler) bought
Versatile and soon started painting the tractors blue. The
Ford badged machine was propably made after the takeover,
but while machines were still versatile red/yellow/black and
the other buildt before the takeover.

I think they just switched the badges on one of those. The
tractor's are excactly the same. I think they just like the
ford badge and that's why they switched it.

I am just about totally shure that Johan is right. Its just
the same story that you for a couple of years were able to
buy a Case IH tractor with a Steiger sign on.
But where are the Americans or Canadians who work with thise
tractors every day? They must be able to tell the story
about the signs...

Re: Versatile 936 tractors in Colorado field
Johan is right, the one with the Versatile "V" on the hood
is a 1985 model, with the "Ford" badge is a 1988 model. In
1989 they were blue. I personally have never seen a 1986 or
1987 model, not sure if plant was shut down or what but all
seem to be either '85s or '88s.
