The Volvo BM LM 622 and LM 642 were 2 and 4-wheel drive respectively, all-round wheel loaders in the 88-tonne class, built to handle a wide variety of tasks in varying operating environments. The machines, equipped with hydraulic attachment brackets of the "Large Volvo BM type" enabled fast attachment changes giving access to a wide range of attachments. Very good stability and accessibility, combined with good reach, are features that characterised these Volvo BM loaders.
The Volvo BM 622/642 are the last machines of their generation with a rigid machine body, a further development of the Volvo BM 621/641 with lineage from the BM-Volvo LM 218 and te pioneering h-10. The machine on display, which is a prototype based on the 641, was manufactured in 1976 and its serial number 10129.
