"Nice and original. Ok tires. Not Rusty. Its been part of a collection and dry stored for 3 + years. Starts and drive but requires a new battery."


An original Krabat in good working condition. Has the later B16 C engine on 32 hp and the 4 gear box. Krabat and sister model Terrier were for several years the country's most sold tractor. This very neat tractor has hydraulics, 3-point lift and pressure rod.
Krabat and terriers were built at the tractor factory in Eksilstuna from May 1956 to 1962. Then interest began to drop for gasoline tractors.
Has a socket for hydraulics, tow bar, and 3 point lift.

Facts about the model

The diesel demand grew during the 1950´s but didn’t completely kill the carburetor tractors. Originally, Krabat would only be sold as a Volvo but it was not long before it also entered BM's product program – here renamed Terrier, from 1958 in addition Volvoröd. Fellow and the terrier were modernly designed and both inexpensive in purchasing and operating. Advertised “Cheaper than a horse”, Krabat and Terrier became by far the most sold gasoline tractor in the country. Originally, Krabat had the proven PV engine B4B, which was then replaced by B16 with 32 hp. The big development stage came 1961 when it got 5 speed gearbox instead of the old 4 gearbox. At the same time it also had BM's new Terra Trol-lift with deep regulation.
T 425 was appreciated because it was quite small and fast and after some modifications even relatively durable in comparison to previous models.
It was manufactured between the years 1957 and 1962 in 12 500 copies.
