Our truck-mounted and industrial cranes, previously known as PEKU and FORESTERI, have always been considered extremely durable and efficient in all conditions. And no wonder – after all, we have a 60-year history in manufacturing tens of thousands of truck-mounted cranes.
The best operators are top professionals in their field and, as we all know, they do not grow on trees. And the best operators want to work with the best tools on the market. We can therefore say that for Kesla, the operator is the king. We are proud to guarantee operators the best possible working conditions, excellent ergonomics and superb crane usability. When the operator is happy, we are happy.
The range of KESLA cranes includes cranes for handling both short and long wood, chip processing, industrial use and recycling.
Yes, excavator equipment and profile- or drainige buckets are available for loaders up to 203T.
Are the gravel buckets suitable for my old KESLA 18 grapple (year 2010)?
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.
How large does a tractor need to be for a KESLA-loader? With Jake-type frame? On a 3-point hitch? How is the loader operated from the tractor cabin?
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.
What purpose is proG20P grapple planned for?
Main purpose is to lift logs from narrow places, like transport chains on the saw mills. It can also be used in skidder cranes.
