Volvo BM T 700, T 700 4WD / 700, 700 4WD

T 700 was largely the same machine as the T 650 but equipped with a turbo engine. Externally the T 700 and the T 650 were the same, but there were major difference "under the skin". The turbo resulted in increased combustion pressure and greater stresses, higher temperatures, and so on. This meant stronger transmission and brakes, a different injection pump, radiator and spark arrester, and different pistons.
From the outset, the T 700 was fitted with the new Terra Trol hydraulics and the Trac Trol fast gear. 4 496 machines had been made by 1982. Of these, 205 were the industrial variant. A small number had hydraulic front-wheel drive, one way of providing four-wheel drive on a tractor of this size.
