1954 – H-10 Wheel loader

In 1954, Bolinder-Munktell introduced a new product which was to be of major importance to the future development of the company. Known as the H-10, this machine consisted of an ordinary agricultural tractor fittedwith a "back-to-front" cab and a powerful lifting unit at the rear to enable the weight of the load to be taken by the big driving wheels. Four different models were produced (H-10/35, H-10/55, H-10/350 and H-10/470). The H-10 "rear loader" was the first of a series of highly successful wheel loaders produced over the years.
