BM-Volvo Parca 714

The Parca 714 was incorporated into the tractor range when company ASJ was acquired in July 1969. The 714 was a four-wheel-drive giant with all four wheels the same size. A six-cylinder Scania engine gave the tractor ample tractive force, enough to pull an eight-share plow. The machine was designed on the basis of a rigid frame which in turn was assembled together with the cab. The cab, which had a heater and a defroster, was large, with space for two passengers.

Engine, gearbox and distribution gearbox were mounted on vibration dampers on the frame. The six-speed gearbox, with synchromesh on all gears except first and reverse, was made by ZF. The machine had hydrostatic front-wheel steering and a differential lock on the rear axle. The tractor had hydraulic vacuum servo brakes drum brakes on all four wheels.
