The Kessler Hercules 2.0 head is the new and improved version of their ultra-strong, solid aluminum pan/tilt head. Originally designed specifically for use with the Kessler Crane, the Hercules 2.0 now has panning drag control, and with an optional quick plate* is an ideal head on which to mount your camera, when not using your crane. The Hercules 2.0 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 your 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. It also has a positionable handle, built-in bullseye level and comes with the Kessler lifetime warranty. Utilizing Bio-Glide technology and unrivaled 150 pound-weight capacity, the Hercules 2.0 out performs the normal fluid heads, but still maintains an affordable price tag.

*Optional Quick Plate to mount a camera is not included, and must be purchased separately, if needed.
