The Kessler Crane K-Pod Tripod is a heavy-duty 100mm bowl system weighing a sturdy 22 lb and offering a 500 lb load capacity. It's designed to be suitable for cranes and standard tripod applications and is upgradeable for use on dolly tracks. A good choice for a head is the Kessler Crane Hercules 2.0, which supports a 150 lb payload.

The K-Pod Tripod features rigid double strut legs with Kessler's incremental Posi-Lock System that friction locks the legs as well as interlocks into incremental lock pockets. The lock pockets allow you to equally position the legs while providing a lock that will prevent any accidental slips from the lock position. The K-Pod also includes a pop-lock spreader that locks the legs in a pre-stressed position to eliminate instability in heavy load conditions, and acts as the frame system when the tripod is used in various dolly configurations. The legs are made of black-anodized aluminum and have a flat design with a powder-coated finish designed to prevent scratching and wear.

Kessler offers a wide range of accessories that upgrade the K-Pod Tripod for multiple uses in standard tripod and dolly system applications. The K-Pod comes with standard spin-out pad feet but can be upgraded with spiked feet, caster wheels, all-terrain wheels, dolly trucks, dolly seats, pushbars, and other K-Pod system accessories.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product ! I use the Kessler K-Pod tripod system with the Hercules 2.0 head to hold a Stealth slider (Standard 39.5 length), which has a Second Shooter motion control on it. This tripod is built like a tank, very stable, easy to use, and certainly indestructable !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, capable tripod base Long after humans have disappeared from the earth, this tripod will still be supporting my crane. Seriously strong, well built.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to my Kessler arsonal I already own a small Kessler crane, and their Hercules head, connected with their superbly sturdy quick release system. I tried using a locally sourced (Australia) Manfrotto 20kg rated tripod to save money, but it was a false saving. One leg clamp slid down while I had a crane, weights, camera, monitor and pan/tilt head attached! Adjusting with an Alan key fixed it, but made me nervous about future wear and slippage. An urgent order through to B&H and the super solid K-Pod arrived. It is heavy - for a reason. Sturdily built with indented stops for the legs prevent any chance of slippage. After all, it is built to carry a person on a seat with their K-Flex add-on dolly system. Only one slight quibble. The soft bag doesn't fully close near to the tripod leg knobs. Perhaps this will change after the bag has been used for a while and gets more flexible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The heavy duty tripod you need This piece can handle all the weight you need, and is built to last. A perfect combination with the Kessler pocket jib series. Grab the all-terrain wheels as well to make this fully mobile in all situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stout enough for whatever Made right. Stout enough for whatever I want to mount to it, crane/jib, slider, camera head. The only thing I would improve is a way to lock the legs in closed position for transport, instead of the included strap. reasonable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Crane Support I bought this tripod and the Kessler 100mm Ball Kit to support our Gluidecam Camcrane 200, after considering a number of alternatives. This set up is solid, and handles the weight and the inertia of the crane. Very Satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have if you are running Kessler cranes or jibs Very well built, heavy duty Tripod for a crane or a Jib. The legs lock very positively so you don't have to worry about slipping. Get the wheels. They are worth the investment.
