Buhler Industries Introduces Farm King and Versatile Tillage Products
Winnipeg, Manitoba
June 15, 2011

Buhler Industries is proud to introduce two new lines of tillage to compliment the growing product lines offered by Farm King and Versatile. A complete range of offset discs, tandem discs, cultivators, and chisel plows are now available through all Farm King and Versatile dealers. The tillage equipment is being built at a recently acquired Buhler Industries facility in Vegreville, Alberta. 

“The introduction of these tillage lines is an important step in delivering a full line of equipment to our dealer networks,” says Dmitry Lyubimov. “The Farm King product line has expanded and now included a full range of short-line products. And we have been very open about our intention to have Versatile offer a product line that caters to the large acre farmers, and these implements are a major part of that strategy.”

The new lines of discs feature the heaviest bearings in the industry today. Exclusively available on Farm King and Versatile discs the 410WSS bearings carry a 3-year limited warranty and the T2-215 bearings carry a 7-year limited warranty. All disc gangs are torqued to an unmatched 3200 ft-lbs. Steel fabricated full spools and optional exclusive interlocking half spools ensure gangs stay tight and eliminates broken spools.

All Farm King and Versatile tandem discs feature a full floating hitch that ensures the disc will cut level, regardless of terrain, and provides a smooth field finish with less plugging, ridging or rough spots. The full floating hitch also helps prevent damage from rocks and other obstacles in the field.

Products from the Versatile and Farm King tillage lines will be on display at the Western Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK from June 15-17, 2011.
