Application area


This is an agricultural tractor suitable for a wide range of field sizes. Its engine was powerful enough to pull a three-furrow plough. It was often used as a stationary power source to drive threshers and stone crushers. The tractor was built to meet the demands of its time for a modern, reliable and efficient power source for harvesters, mowing machines and threshers as well as for all kinds of haulage work.


History

 

World was and periods of emergency led to a shortage of farm labour. This in turn resulted in increased interest in agricultural mechanisation. People wanted to create a model for the small farms. With the exception of the engine and gearbox the tractor is completely made of steel. The 20-24 replaced the previous 30-40 and was less than half in size. The fuel shortage during the first world war put a brake on sales, both in Sweden and abroad.
