Watch a knackered old Volvo get sideways. And crash through expensive camera gear
The art of ploughing has never really changed. Yes, with monster tractors replacing horses, it’s got a bit more efficient over the years, but ploughing remains an arduous act of drudgery – find a field, turn over the soil, make sure the lines are straight. Easy.
But as these maniacal men from Sweden prove, tractorship doesn’t have to be so dull.
Using a Volvo-engined turbocharged tractor – complete with open diff – the enterprising agriculturalists have quite literally been breaking new ground, thanks to the careful application of drifting.
Their weapon of choice is ‘The Terror’, a knackered 1956 Volvo BM Terrier tractor with a 225bhp Volvo B21ET turbocharged engine strapped to the front. As you can see, it has a hand throttle, a well-oiled brodie knob and likes to plough sideways.
You’ll also notice it has a mind of its own, no suspension, and makes its own very unique ‘one tyre fire’ crop circles.
The Terror also, it seems, has a tendency to topple over… and through a load of really expensive camera gear and lighting while narrowly missing three men.
But we reckon if it had a diff, this thing could do its own Gymkhana. Now who’d like to see that? Get ready for Need for Seed: Malmo Drift…
