Kesla Timber Cranes


Kesla retail

We retail KESLA timber cranes and grapples. KESLA cranes are known for their efficiency and durability. Several carefully considered details ensure excellent usability and productivity of the crane. For example, the boom's unique V-bottom increases the rigidity of the structure and ensures precise and backlash-free operation of the extension boom. Open hydraulic lines allow the crane to move quickly, saving energy. KESLA cranes have Key Flag symbol and they are manufactured 100% in Finland. The good availability of spare parts and maintenance make the KESLA timber crane a definite choice.

Traditional straight boom or Z-boom

KESLA cranes use Strenx™ high-quality steel. In addition to straight-boom options, the collection also includes Z-boom cranes, which have the advantage of a space-saving transport position. The most popular straight boom models are the 2110T, 2112T, 2115T and 2117T and the Z-cranes 2212ZT and 2214ZT. The cranes can be equipped with an high seat control or a cabin. The high seat control is available in three versions: normal, E and side management version. The E version has the smallest turning radius and the side version offers the best view of the crane's work. The KESLA Vision cabin is available in normal or XL size.


Kesla 22 -serie cranes

KESLA 22-series Z cranes are available in 12, 14 and 17 ton-meter sizes. The 22 series cranes have an electric valve with a higher permeability than before. In addition, the transmission and extension lines to the cylinder have been enlarged, which is reflected in higher movement speeds and improved maneuverability. The boom structure has been almost completely renewed. The renewed structure includes a cylinder change in the extension, changes in the size of the cases and bigger padding. The changes have not brought much additional weight, although at the same time the useful dimension has been increased by 30 cm compared to the previous one.

Kesla control systems

KESLA cranes can be controlled by mechanical or electrical controllers. Mechanical control systems are available with both two and four levers. The most popular of the electronic control systems is the KESLA proC, which is also available for top seat equipment. KESLA proC is based on the IQAN system and enables adjustments for several drivers and different types of work. KESLA Quick is a control system's quick change for truck cranes. It allows the use of up to four different control modes in one crane. A quick change of control system is available for KESLA's own proC mobile crane control system, which is the most popular control system in the company's cranes.

Assembly of Kesla Cranes

We have operated as the official assembly and maintenance service for KESLA timber cranes since 1993. With our solid experience, crane installation can be done without any complications. Crane assembly includes, among other things, modification of the crane bracket, hydraulics adjustment, and the installation of grapples, scales and work lights according to your wishes. Cranes can also be maintained, repaired and inspected easily from the same place. We also have wide selection of spare parts for cranes and lifting equipment, as well as accessories directly from the shelf or with fast delivery.


Crane Inspections

We also operate periodical and 10-year inspections for loading cranes. During the annual inspection, we go through the structures and the condition of the device. In addition, the crane's control and additional devices are checked and the operation of the warning and alarm devices is verified. During the 10-year inspection, the crane is disassembled and the parts are checked for possible distortion. The inspection ensures the operational safety and it gives the crane a longer service life. We have a lifting crane inspector qualification certificate accepted by Inspecta Sertifiointi Oy.
