Ground engineering equipment supplier Skelair International has announced the addition of the new Klemm KR 801-3GK drilling rig to its range to meet demands for working in confined conditions.
According to Skelair, the KR 801-3GK is suited for drilling in extremely confined conditions due to its compact 2.2m total width of dimensions, as well as its newly developed mobile radio remote control.
The functionality of the rig 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 capability to slew the boom up to 90º over the right-hand crawler in combination with powerful KD hammers or KH rotary heads, which Skelair said makes the KR 801-3GK ideal for securing sloops and excavations with self-drilling anchors, or cased soil nails
“The new drilling rig has been carefully and precisely designed so it does not require additional outriggers,” said Skelair managing director John Mayo. “The set-up of the drill rig is very efficient and is a great example of advancement in geotechnical and environmental machinery.”
