Versatile 555 Tractor working ground in Darke County Ohio Ahhh the dreaded Triple Nickel! I own a Versatile 976 and love it. Neighbour had a Triple Nickel and nothing but grief with it. Axles this and transmissions that. Cool to see one actually running!
Still getting it done .
We used to have a 555 but my grandfather traded it for a JD 7810 because dad traded for our 8760 so nice to see one of these in action
Back in my younger days in Sandwich I'll. I had a 340 ext arctic cat it was a bad machine in it's day lol times have changed lol
My Friends 555 was nicer then new, it was amazing!! Welcome to the Versatile tractor plant here in Manitoba, Canada Mike Less!!
I worked at Versatile from 1979 till 1985 on the tractor rear frame line. My brother farms just outside Winnipeg in Sanford Manitoba,he has a 1981 875 and my Dads old 1976 series 2 800 Versatile both are houred out but keep on going. Perhaps the best tractors ever built. I'm proud to say I was a part of it. Great video!!
Never saw any 555's in our area (northwestern Minnesota) but there were plenty of 145's and 700's back in the day. And the small V-8 Cummins did not have a very good reputation. About like a 3208 Cat (or older versions).
I love Darke County--the vast prairie that it is and all the nice looking farms that go with it. Of course, I like the 555, the same as all the other guys do. Thanks for showing.
Another great video! I really like the drone footage.
I remember that snowmobile video and from the road signs and stuff and I was able to find that spot on Google Earth after watching it. Great stuff these videos.
I have a 500 versatile, there were couple 555 in the area, all the ones I know of had catastrophic failure in the axles. Mine and at least another one were modified to fit 145 axles. The smaller versatiles were a great concept for rowcrop and smaller farms, but the engine, transmission, and axles were not up to the standards of most other versatile tractors.
Another great video Mike. Was wondering if you have any video on versatile bi directionals?
nice to see old iron still working. oh and it is a versatile. thank you stay safe mike

Mike, you are NAILING IT with the classics you've been finding lately
There's one a few miles north of Martinsville, Indiana and it looks to be almost entirely original
