Skelair targets basement contractors with new Klemms

10 Jun 15 Ground engineering and rock drilling specialist Skelair International has added two new Klemm KR702-2 rigs to its fleet.

Skelair says that the compact dimensions of the Klemm KR702-2 make it ideal for applications where high-powered mini-piling rigs are needed in tight spaces, such as on basement extension projects that are all the rage for wealthy London home-owners.

Weighing 4.5 tonnes, the Klemm KR702-2 is the successor to the Klemm KR701-1 and features KH22 rotary heads with central flushing, a 508mm clamp assembly fitted, an extendable mast and a two-metre stroke. The telescopic tracks extend up to 1250mm, in conjunction with two standard outriggers.

Both of Skelair’s new machines have the more powerful PP115F wheeled power pack.

Managing director John Mayo said: “The addition of the two new rigs continues to strengthen our position in the rental market and further demonstrates our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers. The Klemm range offers a flexible choice to accommodate the full range of drilling requirements and access restrictions, meaning the machines are a clear choice for many contractors looking to boost efficiencies. The fact that these two new machines have already been secured on long-term contracts speaks volumes.”
