Volvo BM 2254

The 2254 was a further development of the T 500 in the sense that it was  based on the same "IH-skid", the same Perkins engine, the same Volvo BM cab, all of which gave it the same characteristics as the T 500. Put simply, the 2254, with 68 hk DIN, is an "uprated" version. The 2254 was the four-wheel-drive variant. The 2254 had a longer wheelbase, a larger radiator and an oil cooler, as well as more standard equipment. The four-wheel drive was the same design as IH used on their machines.
The front-wheel drive was engaged and disengaged by means of an electro-hydraulically operated plate-type clutch. The 2254 was produced only with a cab. Its modern design and the high level of comfort in the cab made the machine a favorite with small farmers. A favorable torque curve with increased torque at low engine speeds gave pulling power comparable with that of earlier models.
