MacAllister Machinery Co., based in Indianapolis, Ind., now represents the NorAm 65E compact motorgrader from its 13 locations in Indiana. The long time Caterpillar dealer will sell, rent and support the 65E at each branch location including its extensive network of CAT Rental Stores: MacAllister Rentals.
The NorAm 65E follows a 60-year heritage of compact graders originating with the Allis Chalmers model “D” in 1949. The machine continued to be an industry leader as the Fiatallis model 65B from the 1970’s through the 1990’s. NorAm Construction Equipment began marketing the machine in 1993 and has continually strived to update the unit to current technical and performance standards while maintaining the machine’s traditional features.
“We are very pleased to have MacAllister Machinery Company join our team,” said Eric Mueller, president of NorAm. “MacAllister Machinery is a very highly respected dealership with a tremendous staff of sales, rental and support professionals. There is a very substantial population of older Fiatallis machines working throughout Indiana and I am very confident that many more new NorAm 65E graders will be working in the Hoosier state through MacAllister’s efforts.”
According to Chris Novotney, MacAllister’s machinery sales representative, “The NorAm 65E is truly a big grader in a small package. The overall design of the machine is the same as the larger motorgraders that we sell. It is good to see a compact grader with so much quality built into it.”
“We are excited about adding the NorAm 65E to our product offerings. The Allis ’D’ and Fiatallis ’B’ were very well received machines in Indiana, and there are still many of these units running that are 20 plus years old. The NorAm 65E fits in perfectly with our overall strategy of representing the best construction equipment available with uncompromised support,” said Dave Clark, new machine development manager, MacAllister Machinery Co. Inc.
