This aluminum pan / tilt head designed for your Kessler Crane. It features panning drag control for when you want to use the head on your tripod instead of your crane.
Key Highlights
  • Supports up to 150 lb
  • Multiple mount options on tripods
  • Vertical lock for a fluid swivel effect


Originally designed specifically for use with the Kessler Crane, the Hercules 2.0 Head now has panning drag control and with an optional quick plate, and is an excellent head to mount the camera to when not using a crane. Mounts to your tripod using a 100mm levelable ball mount, 75mm fixed ring mount, or a flat mount. No quick plate is used to mount the crane to the Hercules 2.0, so you get an ultra stable connection.

The Hercules 2.0 features Kessler's revolutionary Bio-Glide technology for extremely smooth pan and tilt movement and spring assisted drag control. Tilt can be pin locked, so the Hercules 2.0 functions as a Fluid Swivel. Also has a positionable handle, built-in bullseye level and the Kessler Lifetime Warranty. Utilizing Bio-Glide technology and unrivaled 150 lbs weight capacity, the Hercules 2.0 out performs the normal fluid heads yet maintains an affordable price tag.
