Kelley Equipment Company Expands Fleet
With Terex® Ac 500-2 All TERRAIN Crane
ZWEIBRÜCKEN, October 23rd, 2015 – Kelley Equipment Company of Florida, Inc has expanded its crane fleet with the addition of a compact, eight-axle Terex® AC 500-2 all terrain crane. The new crane enables Kelley Equipment Company to handle a larger class of projects, which require lifting heavier loads at greater heights.
According to Russell Johnson, Vice President and General Manager at Kelley Equipment Company, the company chose the Terex AC 500-2 crane because of the unit’s ease of operation and ability to reach exceptional heights and radii.
With a carrier length of just 56 ft (17.1 m), the Terex AC 500-2 unit is the most compact eight-axle crane in its class. It has an impressive working height of 478 ft (145.8 m) through the use of the unit’s luffing fly jib. “The Terex AC 500-2 has a proven design that is versatile enough to use across the many markets our organization services,” says Johnson. “We also know that Terex stands behind its equipment with a knowledgeable product support team.”
Established in 1984, Kelley Equipment Company has one of the largest crane rental fleets in the United States. The company works alongside many of the largest general contractors in the southeastern part of the country, helping to erect infrastructure in the power and industrial, engineering and construction, as well as travel and transportation markets.

The new Terex AC 500-2 crane will get to work right away, providing service on an industrial expansion project in Louisiana.
Kelley Equipment Company also added a Terex® Explorer 5800 all terrain crane to its fleet. “The Explorer 5800 is a great addition to our fleet because it has 229 ft of main boom and the fact that we can easily travel throughout the state with it,” says Johnson.
