Skelair Enhances Rental Range with the Addition of Klemm KR801-3GS

The UK’s First KR801-3GS is Available to Hire from Ground Engineering Specialists

Leading supplier of ground engineering and rock drilling equipment, Skelair International, has expanded its range of rental machines with the addition of Klemm KR801-3GS to its hire fleet. As part of a strategy to hold stock of a complete range of drilling solutions to satisfy an array of different projects, Skelair has recently taken delivery of the first KR801-3GS in the UK.

The Klemm KR801-3GS is a compact and universally applicable rig, suitable for a wide range of projects thanks to its fully operational radio remote control and Tier 4 final CAT 117kW engine. With more engine power and great pump output, the KR801-3GS is the latest rig to join the Skelair rental fleet and is the first rig of this type in the UK.

Steph Keane, Sales Director at Skelair, commented: “We are incredibly pleased to announce the recent addition of the KR801-3GS to our range of rental rigs. The new rig has enabled us to enhance our offering to customers, providing an all-round solution to drilling requirements with additional flexibility and fuel-saving opportunities.”

The Klemm KR 801-3GS has been specifically designed to support lighter and moderately difficult drill jobs. The reinforced boom assembly offers the greatest possible flexibility, at the same time as having a load-carrying capacity for the operation of moderately heavy drill heads.

The dual pump Load-Sensing hydraulics achieve an extremely efficient hydraulic supply which helps users to maximise the fuel-saving qualities of the Klemm. Its operation of the newest generation in drilling head units, with high pressure hydraulics and a system pressure of 350 bar maximum is a trendsetting feature.

“Various drill masts are also available for the KR801-3GS, as well as the respective applications. Available for hire, the Klemm KR801-3GS has a drill mast with 4300mm rotary stroke and 60kN feed/pull as well as an electric inclinometer for mast positioning. In addition, a Klemm KD1011 drifter with overburden flushing system, a hydraulic on-board rod rack and 38-254mm clamp and breaker completes the machine specification. The KR801-3GS is testament to Klemm’s ambition to produce efficient and dynamic rigs that are suitable for a range of applications and we are incredibly pleased that we are able to share this with our UK customer base,” concluded Steph.
