Kesla the global #1 independent manufacturer of harvester heads. As complement to the extensive range of harvester heads we utilize our long expertise of timber cranes' technology to offer cranes for harvesters and forwarders.
Tässä 316T-kuormaimessa on erinomainen ajotuntuma ja voimaa kuin metsäkonenosturissa.
Tätä PATUa ei ole tarvinnut hitsailla jälkikäteen, vaikka se on ollut kovalla käytöllä jo kaksitoista vuotta.
316T-kuormaaja, jota testasin, liikkui todella pehmeästi ja herkästi. Tuntui siltä, että olisi helppo oppia työskentelemään sen kanssa.
This 316T has as good contact and power as in a forest machine crane.
This PATU has not needed any after-welding although it has been in active use for 12 years.
The 316T loader I test drove, was moving very softly and sensitively. I feel it would be very easy to learn to work with this loader.
Thank you for your feedback!
Yes, excavator equipment and profile- or drainige buckets are available for loaders up to 203T.
The ones in the brochure are not but we have similar type of gravel buckets available also for our older grapples in our spare parts and also for your grapple.
Quite small tractor (60-80 hp, 2500 kg) is good when you are working with a crane that is mounted on the trailer. Oil flow is a critical thing. Minimum oil flow needed for our smallest crane model KESLA 211 is 25-40 l/min. Bigger cranes will need more oil flow. For example KESLA 304T works properly with 40-70 l/min or with LS 100-130 l/min. Powerful oil flow is important for good control of the crane. If you mount a KESLA crane on JAKE-frame or 3-point hitch your tractor's weight should be at least 3 500 kg. That is minimum weight for KESLA 200-series cranes and 200-series cranes are possible to mount on the 3-point hitch. With KESLA 300-500 –series cranes tractors weight has to be 4 000 or more. JAKE-frame is the best option for tractor mounted crane. For crane control we have manual, servohydraulic and electrical control systems. With all of those you can operate properly inside the tractors cabin. Servohydraulic and electrical controls are the easiest for the mounting.
Main purpose is to lift logs from narrow places, like transport chains on the saw mills. It can also be used in skidder cranes.
Thank you for your question!
