When Key Equipment re-entered the light and compact equipment segment they turned to Wacker Neuson. Key Equipment is returning to its roots with an open house/mobile road show at its Honey Brook, Pa., location at 1799 Horseshoe Pike, featuring Wacker Neuson equipment.

"Back in 2008 Key Equipment was supporting the local contractor, industrial and municipal base with excavation, compaction, cutting and general rental equipment. Our local contractors had been using our location for 10 years and enjoying excellent service and the convenience of our location," said Brian Funk, president, Key Equipment. "With the onset of the economic collapse in the local building and construction trades we were forced to change our direction and we began focusing on the regional lifting market with aerial work platforms, telehandlers, forklifts and cranes.

"We never forgot about our local ground-engaging contractors and the fun and camaraderie we had at our store in the morning as their crews were loading up for the day."

When Key Equipment re-entered the light and compact equipment segment they turned to Wacker Neuson.

"I have never worked with a manufacturer that is more dedicated to training and support, and all 300 of their products are of the highest quality. Wacker Neuson has unveiled its line of skid steers and compact track loaders to complement their mini-excavators, compaction, lighting and work site solutions, and these units will be on display at the open house," Funk said.

Wacker Neuson and Key Equipment are offering a special "push, pull or dump" trade-in allowance for any old plate or rammer that is brought to the open house. These old units do not have to be working or fully intact, only a serial plate must remain, according to Funk.

The trade-in allowance is $200 for any plate traded against the purchase of Wacker’s top selling WP1550 plate. There is a $300 allowance for any old rammer in any condition when purchasing one of Wacker’s BSi oil injected 2 stroke rammers.

In addition a special prize will be given to the oldest rammer dragged into the show.

"Both Key Equipment and Wacker Neuson have been hard at work reinventing their businesses to match the evolving needs of the local contractor and municipalities. We invite all of our past and future customers and friends to come visit with us on April 22nd and come "see the Magic" as Key Equipment and Wacker Neuson kick off the long awaited spring construction season," Funk said.

The open house, which runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., includes food, discounts and a roaming magic show by "Ken & Jade."

Key Equipment has locations in Williamsport, Harrisburg and its original location in Honey Brook, Pa.
