Field of application 

 

The Munktell 22 was designed to meet the demand for a small crude oil engine. It is designed for a two-share plow. It was also popular as a stationary power source for threshers and other machines. The tractor body was also used to power the first Munktell road grader from 1924 on.

 

Background 

 

The type 22 was the first tractor to be built using modern principles. The engine and gearbox formed a load-bearing unit and were made of a special high-strength cast iron alloy. High quality was underlined by the fact that the tractor contained 38 Swedish-made ball and roller bearings. The crankshaft, the gearbox shafts and the front wheels run on Swedish bearings of a make known all over the world. Axles, gears and other forged parts are of nickel steel with a yield point of 80 kg/mm2. Many satisfied customers have praised the virtues of the type 22 tractor in terms of economy of operation, durability and performance both in the field and as a stationary unit. Between 1921 and 1934 a total of 1 579 of these tractors were made. In 1934 its guide price was 5 225 SEK. At the 22nd Swedish Agricultural Meeting in 1921, this tractor won the top award and His Majesty the King's Prize of Honor. The tractor on display here, manufacturing number 4649, was supplied to the Royal Estate at Strömsholm in Västmanland on 25 April 1929.
