The History of Valtra Tractors

The history of the Valtra brand dates back to 1913 when the Munktell company combined an internal combustion engine with a locomotive body, creating the revolutionary first tractor. One of the first models to hit the market was the Munktells 20-24 released in 1916. Although tractors were not yet widely popular at the time, demand for these machines began to grow in the 1930s. The Munktells 22 model, created in 1921, was closer to modern tractors, offering power of 22-26 horsepower.
In 1932, the merger of J & C G Bolinders Mekaniska Verkstad and Munktells Mekaniska Verkstad resulted in the formation of AB Bolinder-Munktells. Their first tractor model, the BM 25, was notable for being the first machine equipped with pneumatic rubber tires, allowing for an increased maximum speed of 14 km/h.
The next stage of development was the merger with AB Volvo, which began producing its own tractors in 1943. This collaboration led to the creation of the BM Volvo brand, and later Volvo BM.
In 1951, the Finnish company Valmet also joined the ranks of tractor manufacturers, and in 1979, Valmet merged with Volvo BM, forming the Valtra brand. The merger of these companies led to the introduction of new series of tractors to the market. In 1982, the Volvo BM Valmet 05 series debuted.
Over the years, the history of Valtra tractors has evolved, with these machines always being associated with performance and reliability. Today, after over a century of existence, Valtra remains a leader in tractor production, continually developing and introducing newer technologies.
