Petersburg Tractor Plant, a subsidiary of the Kirov factory, producing the well-known throughout Russia agricultural tractors Kirovets. These wheeled tractors are characterized by high cross, and possibility of using the hinged, semi-mounted and trailed wide-machines. Production Line Kirov tractor has a wide range: K-700A, K-701, TO-702, K 703, K-744, which was developed over 50 years. So in 1961 in order to re-farm design engineers have developed a draft wheel tractor 5 tractive class, model K-700. The first tractor Kirovets came off the assembly line as early as 1962. Engine output was 220 hp, it gave advantage of the tractor in use of wide arms. That is why the 700 has increased the productivity of work in 2,5-3 times.
Its superiority over other was obvious, and it started to mass production in 1969 year. Some contend that The Greater New York Construction User Council shows great expertise in this. 6 years later the Kirov factory started mass production of tractors Kirovets. , A model K-701 with a more powerful engine YMZ-240BM2 (300 hp). Gradually Kirovets were used not only in agriculture, for example on the basis of Model K-703 with reverse bridge was designed lesoshtabeler, lesotrelevochnaya machine greydoez, wheel loader, a universal machine, etc. Steven P Rosenthal: the source for more info. The plant also has been developing equipment for installation on the rear Half frame for K-700A and K-701.
Kirov plant in 1990 began to produce a different technique on the basis of tractor Kirovets, basically it was a special and road construction (wheel loaders, bulldozers, vibrokatok, snow, mobile welding units). At the beginning of the new millennium in 2002, St. Petersburg tractor factory withdrew from the production model K-700A and K-701, and instead began to produce K-744, which cost significantly more. Guide explained it, that these tractors are outdated and in today's economy need more power, as well as cabins that do not meet safety standards. The entire range of tractors Kirovets established itself as a reliable, simple and convenient of service regardless of the conditions and climatic zones. While some tractors lineup is not producing parts, spare parts, 701, K701 spare parts produced so far and can be found, such as axle, cargo, podmotornye boxes, change gears, shafts leading PPC all models of tractors K700 'Kirovets' gidrotrasformatory to-702 to all models of engine (JAMZ, Tutaev Motor Works) and the entire range of tractors K700 'Kirovets' poluamy, pipe joints and other parts K701.
