Kesla Oyj is known for several forest technology and material processing products, an example of this is forest trailers for tractors. In recent years, tractor equipment has become increasingly versatile so Kesla has launched a trailer concept with fire-extinguishing features. The sales of this new product will start immediately.
Fire-extinguishing equipment that can be used with all bigger agricultural tractors
The new product consists of a KESLA multiuse trailer, a KESLA loader and a modern, 10 m³, special plastic made water tank, plus all the necessary fire-fighting implements. The fire-extinguishing trailer is equipped with its own hydraulics making it easy to use with any large agricultural tractor.
Flexible use both on-road and off-road
The fire-extinguishing unit can be driven to the fire-site as there is no need for a separate carrier platform. The high road speed is beneficial as the filling site might not always be next to the fire-site. The concept is based on a 144 trailer with roller or nave drive, it can be towed by high-wheeled tractors, which makes it extremely handy and efficient in off-road conditions, for example, in the case of a forest fires. The combination of off-road and on-road features provides flexibility and economy to the investment.
Two water cannons with up to 30 m reach
The KESLA fire-extinguishing unit has two water cannons – one on the loader boom and the other on the rear part of the trailer. The loader boom mounted cannon can shoot up to the 30 m and can be steered easily and precisely to the fire. Thanks to the long outreach of the loader, the water tank can be filled not only from waterpipes but also from natural water sources like lakes, rivers and bigger ditches. This is a great plus when working far from water pipelines.
