Lennart 898441 82 Aktiv M2S combine either
Aktiv M2S combine
I gave a glimpse of this old combine in my 2010 w o w tread post 867397 - it's an Aktiv M2S. Don't ask me of any details but maybe Stark1 can tell us more about this rare piece of Swedish farm history?

Clooser of this combine - the pictures are from a small farm with mainly old equipment, I have posted some pictures from us baling there earlier.

Great piece off machine. And you dont have to be such mechanic to keep it running. Its a very basic piece off machine.

This was one off the earlier self propelled combines made here in Sweden. My father used to have one when he started to farm for a few seasons. The biggest problem is that it has a small auger in the header that makes some issues when when the crops have long straw and it makes some knots on the straw and then you get a stop in the cylinder. But 7 feet header, the engine in the beginning was a Mercedes OM 636VI E and inte 1962 and forward had Perkins 4,107. Weight between 2,5 and 2,7 tonnes (heavier with Perkins) and it costed in 1962 27500Sek (2750 euros). The competitor here was offcourse Volvo ST257.

Thanks everybody, specially Stark for supplying the additional information. It's seldom you don't get fact's that you want if you search the net but I didn'ät find any technical info about this rare combine at all.

Hello I am in the uk cornwall, and I have just bought a AKTIV M2S, its in very good condition as it has been stored in a shed all its life, it was made in 1964,
The owner had it from the mid 1960s, I will be taking it to vintage rallys, I put a battery on it and it started after a few turns and runs fine after many years not used, , does anyone know of any sales leaflets ?

Nice to see Martin!

I never knew Aktiv exported any combines outside Scandinavia, maybe Stark1 knows more?

Re: Aktiv M2S combine
I remember some local farmers had the aktiv trailer bagger version and I use to sit on the bags and slide down the shute.
And from what I have found on the net david brown & ransome sold the trailer version in there colours.
A firm in devon western machinery & equipment co ltd of ivybridge near Plymouth imported aktiv don't know if any other firm did.
On the side of the grain tank above the aktiv name are some letters looks like a long word but with the surface rust cant make it out.
And a picture of it on my lorry.
