Tool your drums with Kennametal weld-on and quick-change blocks to maintain high performance.
The KPF301 block system features a heavy-duty base that stands up to challenging conditions to give you extra performance life. The large block base means more weld area for more strength. The easy replacement sleeve requires no welding, and tools are easy to remove. KPF301 is an economical quick-change system.
Couple the KPF301 block with the KPF303R sleeve that features shorter extraction lengths vs. other sleeves. Shorter extraction lengths provide easier sleeve removal from the base. The bore relief design makes quick work of removing asphalt build-up and broken shanks.
