428 hp Kirovet coming to North America ...

At the Agri-Trade in Red Deer I saw a poster saying that they're bringing the big tractors back over to NA for 2016. What's a basic 428hp tractor worth now a days?? Sign said $198K US funds, 428hp Mercedes-Benz Tier 3 engine , no emissons no (DEF) , 38,000 lbs with just singles on but in the pic. it had duals on so not sure how much it would weigh then. Hydraulics says closed center load sensing 180L/min so close to 50 gal (US) a minute. Not sure is that enough now days to run a big variable rate air drill??





Think the above one is in the poster pic and the below one must be a newer version or something.

Anyone know if it has a door on both sides? Can't see any controls on the right

Can't find squat about them but one old article saying they have a CVT tranny with the guy that biult the Fendt behind it?

This may be something pretty sweet! If that's the money they are talking with that tranny I am interested it taking a look

The tractor has 2 doors. See short clip at
I agree that having the ability to bring Tier 3 (no DEF) till 2018 will be a strong selling feature, as much as the attractive price.

Unit does not have CVT, comes with a very reliable 16x8 transmission, has been perfected through over 20 years in production.

How about the "Big Roy" type version at 0:53!! Need to do an extra headland to turn around!

Hey aree,


Sorry I haven't called you back yet. been very busy over here!


These big tractors will sell well... The 16x8 is probably the smoothest powershift out there...

I had the opportunity of seeing a new one in person... the cabs are very obviously European designed, not Russian anymore... If you like a Claas cab, you'll like that one.

Quieter than a Versatile, and built heavier. Welds, cuts, and machining is surprisingly high quality compared to Rostselmash (Versatile combines).

What comes to mind... Looks good from afar but far from good". Pretty certain once it breaks (like they all do), parts wont exactly be next day, likely next season would be my fear...

I found this statement quite interesting - can anyone expand and comment to it?

"In 2013, Kirovets established a 50/50 joint venture with the Italian companey SAME Deutz-Fahr, called SAME Deutz-Fahr Kirovets Ltd. Tractors are to be manufactured under the Deutz-Fahr Kirovets brand. "

Important would be parts of course, but also tech training and quality of their service manuals!!

I would guess that they are probably simpler than other colors. I have said for years give me a simple power shift and levers to run the controls. Push buttons and computers are fine unless you keep your stuff for any amount of time
