Important dates from the birth of the Valtra brand Valtra is the year 1950 when Bolinder-Munktell was aquerida by Volvo, which was later moved to the production of tractors in Eskilstuna. During the 1950s, Eskilstuna factory produced concurrently Bolinder-Munktell tractors toward the Red Volvo tractors. The two brands of tractors each retained their own rendes sales in Sweden. Tractors have been favored for exports. In 1952, a series of tests of 75 tractors have been manufactured.

Sales were initially good, cost-effective, and 2000 Valmet tractor was delivered in September 1954. Just like today, users don’t stop to ask for more power. Soon I am clear that farmers needed a tractor medium heavy diesel. In 1963, Valmet introduced a forest articulated tractor. Mainly built from components of agricultural tractor Valmet 361D, was the predecessor to the complete range of machines forest Valmet. Because of the lack of capacity of the factories Tourula, forestry machinery production has been transferred to another factory. A strategic shift for Valtra when Volvo BM tomo the decision to abandon production of tractors agricultural machinery in the 1970s, were conducted successful negotiations with Valmet.

However, the company wanted to remain a supplier of components for the purpose of reducing the impact on employment in Eskilstuna, Sweden. As a result, Volvo BM continued to gear equipment and booths to Valmet until 1990. Cooperation with Steyr has produced several advanced capabilities and sales of tractors have progressed rapidly in Continental Europe and the British Isles. The model four cilindres Mezzo, introduced in 1991, was a great success, and the series of six cylinders Mega met in Mega success. During these years under Sisu Valmet tractors operations have evolved positively, and progressed production figures each year. Without however, property changes had an effect on the brand. Until 1994, it was clear that tractors carried the name of Valmet. During the acquisition of Kone in 2002, Valtra was able to expand the facilities of the factory to increase manufacturing capacity. In 2003, the production of 500 000 Valmet and Valtra tractor is welcome. Valtra, AGCO and innovations since January 5, 2004, Valtra has become a filial le of the AGCO society. For the first time in the history of Valtra, the owner of industry works in the same industry and have a full understanding of the needs of Valtra. A characteristic stroke des series N, S and T Valtra tractors (and in other previous series of medium- and high-end media) is the choice of the head, TwinTrac drive system. The seat can be rotated 180 degrees in order to respond to a second series of pedals and a steering wheel more small located in the rear. This allows the operator driving a tractor back and rear equipment easier to use.
