The T-43 was one of Volvo's big tractors. It could manage both the Munktell six-foot thresher and a three-furrow 12-inch plough.
The T-43 had competition in the market from its green colleague, the BM 20 model from Eskilstuna. The T-43 could offer more horsepower and better low end torque. In principle, the volvo T-43 is a BM-20 with a Hesselman engine. It starts on petrol and the runs on paraffin. The T-43 has magneto ignition and spark plugs.
