Synopsis:

An inspiring story of struggle and success.

Peter Pakosh was born to poor immigrants 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 and dominant product line.

Young Pakosh left the farm to take a job as a draftsman for the farm implement giant Massey Harris in Toronto. Soon Pakosh began designing and producing grain augers and sprayers in the basement of his small Toronto home. By the late 1970s, his Versatile tractors captured a 30% market share of large tractor sales in North America.

Versatile was the first 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 this company thrives as Buhler 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 or farm history buff.

About the Author:

Jarrod Pakosh is the grandson of Versatile's co-founder and maintains an extensive collection of Versatile memorabilia.
