Re: Volvo BM tractoren begin jaren '70
Hi Edwin! It's a bit odd for us from the Volvo BM-country to this tractors with other cabs than we are used to. But it's funny to see that they are liked outside Sweden.

I have to correct you in one thing - the small tractor in the last pic that pulls the potato lifter must be a T 430 due to the "square" front. We used ti have one from 1975 to 1995!

Lennart, the cabs are most of the time of a brand called TIM. If you look closely to the first to pics you can also see the rearwheel rims are different from what you see in Scandinavia. These are adjustable rims, you only see them outside scandinavia ( Holland, Belgium, France, Spain )

Re: Volvo BM tractoren begin jaren '70
Thanks RVM for the information, yes I can see the adjustable rims, looks a bit like old MF's or Ford's, is it the same construction? As you say, in Scandinavia the wheels are not adjustable on 800 up to 2654, on our Valmet 2005 they have ordinary rims (even though we have Trelleborg Twins on fixed rims).

I have also seen 800's with the old Swedish cab, was there alternatives?

Lennart, The rims and rim plate are equiped with several blocks. You can fix the rim and plate with the blocks against each other, or on a way the blocks of the rim fall in between the blocks of the rim plate, by turning the rim the other way you can get 2 x 2 = 4 different wheel positions. Hope you understand.

I have seen very few of the older original Dutch BM's ( 350/600/470/800 ) with the swedish cab. Most off them were originally imported without cab and fitted with TIM or fritzmeier at dealer or importer.

Thanks RVM for the info. We will certainly have more to discuss about BM's in the future!
