JAKE in English
JAKE Finland Oy is a family-run company located in Lappajarvi, western Finland, near the lake of the same name. The lake was formed by a meteorite crash about 77 million years ago. The history of our company do not reach quite so far, but still to the 1950's, when the local blacksmith Eero Uusimaki built the first smithy at the place and started working with steel. Eero was, and still is, a very well known person at the nearest counties.
Nowadays we design, produce and sell special equipments such as mounting kits for cranes and diggers, front linkages and diggers for agricultural tractors.
We have been developing the JAKE Mounting Kits since 1987, being the leading manufacturer of this sector in Finland since 1994. JAKE Mounting Kit range includes also other forestry equipments such as armour plates, boom supports, hydraulic support legs, front axle stabilizers and forest fuel tanks. Around 50 % of these products are being exported out of Finland.
Front Linkages have been in our production range since 1994. The main focus in designing the JAKE Front Linkage has been in heavy pushing work, yet not forgetting agricultural needs. JAKE Front Linkage range includes different quick couplers for fast implement connection, hydraulic upper links and other optionals. At present Finland is the main market area for the JAKE Front Linkages.
Since many years of absence of tractor based diggers in Finland we filled this demand in 2009 by the JAKE D114 Digger. In 2013 our digger range was extended with the JAKE D107 Digger, which is designed more for farm and forestry use. Export is noteworthy also in the digger production.
