Kesla forest equipment for Valtra tractors

Kesla forest equipment has been designed to be compatible with Valtra tractors, and it can also be fitted at the factory at the Valtra Unlimited customisation studio. In recent years, traditional timber trailer+loader combinations have found their way to farms and urban areas. For example, Kesla trailers and loaders are used for loading, transporting, landscaping and park maintenance. On farms, Kesla cranes are used for feeding cattle and spreading bedding, as well as for lifting bales.

”Traction is a must for forest trailer in the woods.”
