New drill rig

Skelair International has launched Klemm’s new KR 801-3GK drilling rig.

The KR 801-3GK is suited for drilling in extremely confined conditions due to its compact 2.2m total width, as well as its newly developed mobile radio remote control. This is further aided by a long reach kinematic which offers maximum reach capability to drill small and medium sized holes, above and under the set-up area of the drill rig. Applications for inclined or vertical drill holes are covered by the unique kinematic which also allows for a 360º rotation of the mast carrier.
“The new drilling rig has been carefully and precisely designed so it does not require additional outriggers. The set-up of the drill rig is very efficient and is a great example of advancement in geotechnical and environmental machinery,” commented John Mayo, Managing Director of Skelair. 
Additionally, the new model uses a fuel saving dual pump with load-sensing hydraulics. Together with the advantages of the Energy Efficiency Program, the KR 801-3GK achieves an extremely efficient hydraulic supply which makes the newest generation of high pressure hydraulic rotary heads a trendsetting and fuel saving feature. The capability to slew the boom up to 90º over the right-hand crawler in combination with powerful KD hammers or KH rotary heads, makes it ideal for securing sloops and excavations with self-drilling anchors, or cased soil nails.
