Do you know about the first Axial Flow combine harvester brochure?
Or the first press articles.

Brochure for the Versatile D-118, G-125, and D-145.  The 145 was very popular in my area and kind of a ground breaking tractor overall in the 4x4 industry.  They cost about much as a top of the line 2 wheel drive tractor contributing to their success.

Well, now, I guess I need to post a few pics of 1 of the 2 145s that my cousin uses here in WI. Here he is planting corn down a the end of our driveway.

What power plant does that have?  One thing some guys did around here was add full around fenders that covered both tires .  Made the tractor look bigger then it actually was.

That is a real prize to have in your possession.  A lot of the old brochures were just thrown out. I'm lucky to have saved a few over the years including this 1977 Versatile calendar showing some of their machinery available at the time.

Boy, that is one complicated hay rake.

Having said that, my dad bought a Fahr  3ph corn chopper in 1977 and used it for several years. Not overbuilt but it was a pretty descent chopper for smaller acreages.

And how! Fahr engineers must not have had enough to do the day they designed that one. That rake looks like a parts salesman's dream.

Well actually a Swiss invented the chain rake but Fahr went into serial production. My grandfather had one he bought new back in Switzerland.

One of the more popular Versatile products in this part of Sask. was the 400 self propelled swather. I believe it was their first hydrostatic drive model. They sold a lot of these as well as the model 10 pull types. From a 1972 ad.
