Skelair has the first Klemm KR801-3GS in the UK on its hire fleet

The addition of the new rig is part of a strategy to hold stock of a complete range of drilling solutions to satisfy an array of different projects.

The 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.

Steph Keane, sales director at Skelair, said: "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. The use 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 available for the KR801-3GS, as well as the respective applications. Available for hire, the Klemm KR801-3GS has a drill mast with 4,300mm 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 Keane.
