As construction week continues, today’s article features Case Backhoe Rentals and spotlights an authorized Case, Kubota, and Pettibone construction equipment rental and agricultural equipment dealer: Mckeel Equipment Company, servicing Western Kentucky, Northwest Tennessee, and Southern Illinois.
For the past twenty years, rental has been the virtual lifeblood of our construction equipment business at McKeel Equipment. But, that wasn’t always the case. We began, over 75 years ago, as an outlet for the region’s agricultural community. But, as the years went by, with loader backhoes and small dozers, we slowly started venturing into the construction industry.
Though McKeel Equipment had always been a sales-oriented operation, by the mid 1980’s it became readily apparent that equipment rental was the future. What began as a few used units, has since grown into the largest inventory of rental equipment in the region. From the beginning, one machine has outshone the rest: Backhoe Rentals
Although it’s by no means new to the market, the loader backhoe continues to be the number one choice on jobsites, when it comes to construction equipment rentals. Combining digging and loading capabilities with the mobility a loader backhoe offers can turn many aspects of dirt work into a one man show. No equipment manufacturer understands this better than Case.
Case introduced the first factory-integrated loader backhoe in 1957, and with the recent introduction of the “Stronger Everywhere” N-Series, they’re sure to remain the industry leader for years to come. Dramatic increases are found in loader breakout force, lift and reach, along with backhoe breakout force and Case-exclusive Power Lift provides almost 40 percent greater backhoe lift than leading competitive models. The new machines also provide substantially improved visibility and operator comfort.
Mckeel Equipment Company is an official Case, Kubota, and Pettibone Dealer. Visit Case Construction at Con-Expo for a look at the N-Series, as well as the completely redesigned Alpha Series skid steer and compact track loaders.
