The Cult

Overview

 

Kirovets tractors have developed a cult following throughout the world They're reputation for extreme toughness and extraordinary capabilities has won them a remarkable following within Russia, as well as Western Europe and Central Asia. They have proven themselves in the world's toughest conditions, from temperatures below -40oC in Siberia, to +50oC in the prairies of Kazakhstan.

 

Even here in Australian there are several examples still in service which are around than 40 years old. Many enthusiasts have tested their Kirovets potential in tractor pulls and in competition with other tractors. Others have engaged in remarkable feats of stupidity, endangering both themselves and their Kirovets. Below are a selection of videos from enthusiasts who have documented their achievements/stupidity for the world to see.

The River Dweller

 

Kirovets tractors in their homeland are used for much more than simply pulling implements. Such is their power and versatility that they are used by farmers as an all-round farm workhorse.

 

This particular Kirovets appears to be stuck in a river having seemingly attempted a (perhaps unwise) river crossing. Using the trademark worm technique made possible by Kirovets'

automatically locking axles, the driver is able to extract his machine from this seemingly hopeless situation. Along with the trailer he was pulling.

 

Try doing that with any other tractor!

The Tractor Puller

 

In Germany, Kirovets tractors have a particular cult flowing at tractor pull events.

 

In this particular video, a Kirovets which appears to be at least 30 years old takes on a nice new 390hp German tractor. And has it for breakfast.

 

Kirovets tractors are simple and gutsy,

but also incredibly clever. The unique design of Kirovets axles give it around a 4% edge in tractive effort for the same horsepower compared to other 4wd tractors. Combined with the well known advantages in better tractive effort that 4wd tractors have over FWA design tractors, the result is really not so surprising as it may at first seem.

 

And with all the money that the Kirovets owner is saving, he'll be able to build a nice shelf in the pool room to display his trophy...

Tough Mudder

 

This particular Kirovets has been put through it's paces at a competition in Russia.

 

As you can see it's pretty hard to stop a determined Kirovets driver.
