Vertical drilling rig

Drilling rig KR 708-3G

The flexible drilling rig for foundation work with micro- and minipiles - prepared for use with low headrooms.

Powerful. Versatile use.

Use on any site
With 129 kW, the KR 708-3G has a high power for this weight class. With the Oscillating trackss and the front-mounted kinematics, whose set-up is flexible, the device can be used on uneven terrain. Drillings for micro- and minipiles can even be created under difficult conditions.

Low headroom
With drill mast type 203, a detachable upper part of the drill mast facilitates working below a headroom of min. 4 m.

Energy-efficient work
As with almost all KLEMM drilling rigs, the Energy Efficiency Package (EEP) is also included as standard with the KR 708-3G machine. This significantly reduces fuel consumption and noise emissions.


Safe operation
The radio remote control of the drilling rig for all drilling, tramming and set-up functions is in accordance with EN 16228. The drilling rig complies with EN 16228, and the "SPM" mode (Special Protective Mode) is available for working without a guard under special circumstances, and the "ROM" mode (Restricted Operation Mode) for manually changing the drill rods.

Powerful hydraulics
The hydraulics system rests on a load-sensing double pump and a volume flow control independent of the load. For this new development, the operating pressure for drilling functions was increased to 350 bar. The design also takes into account the use of a hydraulic drifter, among other things.


Ideal for cramped spaces

Micro- and minipiles, injections, uplift anchors and cavity filling in confined spaces.


The drilling rig facilitates various configurations of the drill system, and the drill mast design.

Low headroom

With drill mast type 203, detachable drill mast upper part for working under restricted headroom - from a ceiling height


The optional KLEMM DataLink AIR module for the transfer of machine, process and service data into the cloud.

Can be adjusted to the task at hand

  • Rotary heads up to 25 kNm torque, e.g. KH 25
  • Hydraulic drifter, e.g. KD 2117
  • Laterally sliding carriage
  • Hydraulic clamping devices for drilling tubes up to max. ø 508 mm
  • Lifting winch up to 10 kN pulling force and cathead
  • Flushing or concreting swivels

Details and options


An interlocking guard meeting the requirements of EN 16228 is available for the dril rig.

Details and options

Machine control

The entire machine control is easily accessible. The readability is supported by an LCD colour display, intended for inputs.

Details and options

Radio remote control

The drilling rig can be operated from a safe distance using radio remote control for all drilling, tramming and set-up functions.

Details and options

Engine compartment

The diesel-hydraulic drive train with the powerful CAT C 4.4 engine is easily accessible.

Details and options

Oscillating tracks

The actively and passively oscillating chassis tracks improve the set-up of the drilling rig on uneven terrain and make it easier to load and unload the drilling rig from a truck.

Details and options

Concreting swivel

Centrally installed concreting swivel and gooseneck for the supply of cement or concrete when creating the pile. 

Details and options

Cathead with lifting winch

The installation of the pile reinforcement is supported by a lifting winch and a laterally sliding carriage.
