The purpose tractors – agricultural works with mounted, semi-mounted and trailed machines and transport, some excavation and reclamation work in agriculture.
July 13, 1962 from the Assembly shop of the Kirov factory has released the first tractor K – 700 “Kirovets”. Leningrad, now St. Petersburg, the plant was not randomly selected for the development and production of the most powerful and today the farm tractor. The oldest Russian enterprise in 1924 was able to start production of tractors “Fordson-Putilovets”.

The first “Kirov workers” had engine power of 220 HP and can work with wide-cut implements, which allowed to increase productivity in comparison with other tractors 2.5-3 times.
From year to year, Kirovsky Zavod has been steadily increasing its production so needed in the village machines – in 1975, coming off the Assembly line one hundred thousandth tractor K-700, and in the same year, begins production of tractors K-701 with an engine of 300 HP In 1985 from the factory goes for 300-thousand “Kirovets”. In the early 90-ies of the designers developed a series of road construction and forest machines based on a specially developed tractors K-702 and K-703. So mark “Kirovets” is becoming known not only agricultural workers, but also builders, gas, petroleum, and many others, where the technique Kirovets found a wide application due to its reliability and endurance. Latest K-700 off the Assembly line plant in January 2002, replaced by a series of “Kirova” index K-744r (250 and 300 litre .e.) the K-744Р1 (300 liters .with.) and 744Р2 (350 L. E.).
Production of the Kirov factory it became known outside the country: more than 12 thousand “Kirova” various series have been set for work to foreign countries. The products of the St. Petersburg plant and is now well known outside Russia – in Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Egypt, Vietnam, China and neighboring countries. In the intervening years, it produced over 464 thousand tractors.
The plant designers do not stop there – today it tested a new tractor K-745-8, traction class capacity from 420 to 495 HP
