Klemm releases new compact class drilling rig
By Catrin Jones09 December 2021
German equipment manufacturer Klemm Bohrtechnik has launched the KR 800-3G, the latest drill rig in its compact class product range.
With an operating weight of 9 tonnes and an on-board diesel engine, the company says the KR 800-3G is the lightest and smallest model in the Klemm 800 series.
“When we developed our latest drill rig, we had in mind the needs of our customers for a universal machine which is as compact and as powerful as possible”, said Roy Rathner, managing director at Klemm.
With a total width of only 1.80m, an adjustable mast for different stroke lengths, and the option of mounting various rotary heads or hydraulic drifters - for both single and double-head drilling – the company believes the KR 800-3G meets the wide range of the requirements of drilling in confined spaces.
Using the remote-control unit with display, Klemm says the drill operator can always assume a safe working position around the drilling rig. The high functional safety of the control concept ensures that operator safety is provided in accordance with the requirements of EN 16228.
In addition, a separating device for protection against moving parts in the work process can be provided.
The 100 kW diesel engine complies with EU V and Tier 4f emissions standards. A version with EU IIIA emissions standard (90 kW power class) is also available.
