The BM-2 is a farm tractor for two-furrow ploughs. Once tractors began to be fitted with rubber tires, it became more common for the to be used for haulage on the roads.


History

 

In most respects th BM-2 is th same machine as the type 25. One difference between the BM-2 and its predecessors was the foot-operated clutch, whichreplaced the old-fashioned lever operation. During the war, the BM-2 was converted to run on producer gas and was designated GBM-2. The wood gas unit required certain modifications to the hot bulb engine, including a new cylinder head and electric ignition. The type 25 and the BM-2 were highly regarded by farmers. Many farmers however wanted to use three-furrow ploughs and this required more horsepower. This was the reason for development of the BM-3 model. The BM-3 was produced in parallel with this type of tractor during 1932-1942 in 55 units.
