Kelly Attachments relies on Hardox® round bars
June 29, 2020 6 min read
Kelly Attachments in Texas, USA, was started in 2000 by Jack Kelly. The company designs and manufactures quick couplers, breakers, buckets and compaction wheels. When Kelly Attachments replaced 4140 bars with Hardox® round bars in its quick couplers, production times went down and performance went up. The combination of hardness and toughness makes Hardox® round bars both wear resistant and machinable.
An inspired moment for quick couplers
Jack Kelly needed a quick coupler for the company’s line of excavator buckets. He scanned the market and found it had nothing to offer that lived up to his standards. He simply had to develop one of his own design. One that made it easy to change buckets and other attachments and to still be able to cope with the toughest jobs. Long-lasting performance has always been a hallmark of Kelly Attachments’ products. The quick coupler had to perform at the same high level, particularly since many of the customers work in the hardest and most unforgiving Texas bedrock.
