23.09.2016 Tractor forest equipment

Jouko Makkonen, who is living in Eastern Finland, in Savonranta, is now using his fifth KESLA tractor loader – and to be specific a grapple loader - which he finds as an unbeatable solution for farms. The newest loader was purchased in 2015 as the previous KESLA 204 loader was changed over to Makkonen’s son who continued the farming as Makkonen retired.
