Bolinder-Munktell BM 35, BM 36 / Volvo T35, T36

The first tractors with the new diesel engine were the BM 35 and BM 36. They were powered by the three-cylinder Bolinders 1053 engine, which had an output of 42,5 hk at 1 800 r/min. The BM 35 was the basic model, with a fixed front axle, while the BM 36 had an adjustable front axle. The total weight was about 2 500 kg. This could be increased to about 3 600 kg with weights and with liquid in the tires.
Sales of the red variant, the Volvo T 35/36, began in 1954.
A special variant with dual row crop front wheels was produced for export to Colombia. The BM 35 was used as a basis for the H 10 rear loader, the first loader in the company's history.
