they sure look like the M7! (those are made in France are they not?)


would be surprised if Kubota would use a cummins engine? theirs have a pretty good track record of their own.


Kubota / Kvernland make a large sprayer in Europe with similar appearce to the Agrifac. a little surprised the haven't tried marketing it here if they are really serious about selling a full line of equip.

If the price is right, they will sell. The Versatile 4wds are excellent imo. They could be cheaper too though.

IMO having the same tractor also in kubota colora will hurt their marketing plan.

Much more North American/European engineered and built than current Case magnum. No China Diesel in this beautiful new Versatile (like Case/New Holland uses)!

6.7 seems a bit small for this job... think the boxcar magnums and 8000 deeres ran 8.3s but I guess more hp form less cubes seems to be the thing. John deere D was 30 hp and 501 CID....

Wonder if versatile is throwing as many darts at a dart board as possible? They have a smaller manufacturing place in Fargo that seems to always have random new pieces from versatile show up. Anything from self propelled sprayers, combines, grain carts... theyll have anywhere from 1-4 of each item, like they are a small hub for shipping demo units.

Thoughts?

Assuming that the info is true that Versatile will build these for Kubota, they would probably use a Kubota engine for them, and use the Cummins only in the Versatiles.

The Fargo plant is their "test" plant of what I've figgured or their overflow plant.

Also it seems that all or most prototypes come out of there, with the best known one being Big Roy.(got to see it when it was new, before the public really knew about it)

My 825 was made there also. When I asked why in Fargo it was just a "well it was popular here and..." I think it was a idea to expand but the market went down so it never really took off.

As for throwing darts at everything, I mean why not? There hasn't really been anything terrible from them ever and their previous smaller tractors were popular, so if they have to make them for someone else, why not make them for yourself too?

Versatile is merely re-entering a market they had to abandon several years ago when the emissions standards started playing havoc with their profitability. I'm not sure if labeling their new series as the "Nemisis" series is the best choice of name; - rhythms with "Genesis" I guess! :-)

If they're no good, Nemesis will definitely backfire
