Kelly Tractor Co., a leading provider of construction equipment throughout the United States and Canada, has added the IMT AF300E Tier 4 drill rig to its sales and large rental fleet. With this introduction, Kelly continues to expand its leadership in the foundation drilled shaft industry as the only dealer in North America to offer the next generation of IMT drill rigs.

 The new IMT AF300E hydraulic drilling rig, available in either standard mast (left in photo) or LCA (right in photo) configuration, is built on a Caterpillar power module with a C13 Tier 4 engine package. With its standard 4 element, 46-metre kelly bar, the rig develops 228,645 ft-lb of drilling torque at the tool.

 “We listened to our customers,” said Bruce Budd, manager, Crane and Foundation Group for Kelly Tractor Co. “This rig configuration is exactly what contractors have been asking for.”

 For the past 19 years, Kelly Tractor Co. has been a leader in the foundation drilling equipment industry. The company’s field experience and knowledge, financial resources and strong dealer network were paramount to the collaboration with IMT and Caterpillar that resulted in this new IMT rig. Kelly Tractor’s influence on the full line of IMT drill rig designs has created assurance that quality drill rigs are sold, maintained and serviced by a company with a track record of excellence in providing fast and competent customer service.

 “Kelly Tractor Co. has been providing exceptional sales and service to the construction industry for more than 80 years,” said Budd. “Being ahead of the crowd and focusing on customer service is a distinct advantage for our customers with IMT machines. The Caterpillar dealer network services the Caterpillar power base, and Kelly professionals maintain the drill portion. This partnership is the strength behind the new design. It reduces downtime and enables us to effectively sell, lease and service a rig anywhere in the U.S. or Canada.”

 Headquartered in Miami, Kelly Tractor Co. serves the construction industry with a wide variety of equipment. Since 1933, the company has provided rentals, leasing, sales and servicing of equipment for highway and bridge building, water and sewer, land development, housing, aggregate quarries, agriculture, warehousing, seaports, marinas and other markets. Kelly Tractor Co. sells and rents IMT hydraulic drilling rigs to foundation drilling contractors throughout the Western Hemisphere.
