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.



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.
