1906 – Road roller

Even before the age of the tractor, Munktell's started to build construction machinery and the first piece to be built was a steam-powered road roller. The year was 1906.

A compression-ignition road roller followed in 1914.

The same year as the first road roller was presented, an early version of a 360 degrees excavator with steam engine was designed and built in a small quantity.
