The original Kessler Crane is the industry standard in lightweight camera crane systems. Featuring 360 degree rotation, an invertible camera platform for under or over slung camera positions, a two arm design for maximum stability and built with high-grade anodized aluminum the Kessler Crane is as robust as it is functional. Easily broken down for transportation and uses standard household style weights to achieve proper balance.
This kit includes everything you need for a functional 8' or 12' crane, complete with K-Pod Tripod, Hercules 2.0 Head, and the Crane.
Note: The 12' Crane includes the Extended Weight Bar and Vertical Brake.
Configurable for Your Needs
The Kessler Crane is available in a variety of sizes and configurations. Building the perfect crane for your needs is simple. Select the size needed, either 8' or 12' lengths are available. You may also add an 18ft upgrade kit to your starter kit to have a crane at our maximum offered length.
When the Kessler Crane® is not in motion protect it from unwanted vertical movement with this braking system. Simply tighten the knob and the crane will stay in the angle you place it allowing you to film locked down static shots as well. This add-on is included with both the 8' and 12' crane.
The Kessler Crane features manual, fixed-angle and automatic tilt control for ultimate versatility, making it the perfect tool for any crane application.
Adjustable Weight Bar
Balance in any crane or jib is essential to easy use and camera stability. With the adjustable weight bar system users can change rigs on the fly with the weights on hand and readjust the crane's weight bar to accommodate the weight changes.
Internal Sleeve Bearings
Smooth motion can be the difference between high quality production value and the appearance of an amateur video. The Kessler Crane features internal sleeve bearings which ensure when you use the crane, every move is smooth.
Kessler understands shooters are on the move. The Kessler Crane is built with portability in mind and easy disassembly ensures this is possible.
Backed by our manufacturer's Lifetime Warranty, we guarantee that it is free from defects in material and workmanship, otherwise we'll fix it.

- A little shorter...Review by Abraham Yang
Takes less thank 5 minutes to put together. The soft case I bought as an add-on is way too big for the components of this crane. I am just going to carry the KC-8 without the soft case, until I buy the 12' extension. This thing is built like a tank so it'll be fine without a soft case.
The balancing weights you need are the ones for dumb bells, not the ones for bench press bars.
Very smooth motion, and you could probably use this indoors too, being very careful of course.
Very happy with this KC-8.
