The dealerships include Ziegler CAT, with locations in Minnesota and Iowa; Nebraska Machinery (NMC CAT), with locations in Nebraska and Iowa; and Prime Source Parts and Equipment, a subsidiary of Carolina CAT, located in North Carolina.
These new distributor partnerships provide drilling contractors and mine operations convenient access to Boart Longyear top-hammer tooling and products for drill-and-blast applications.
Boart Longyear designs and manufactures a range of top-hammer tooling for both surface and underground drilling and mining. With a complete selection of shanks, rods, bits, couplings and adaptors, Caterpillar customers can now purchase Boart Longyear top-hammer tooling through their already established relationship with their local dealers.
Caterpillar’s network of locations in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and North Carolina provides local availability of Boart Longyear tooling for easier access.
Boart Longyear’s chief commercial officer Mark Irwin said: “Working with Cat dealers has allowed us to make our products more accessible with shorter delivery timeframes than ever before. With their established network and our high-quality top-hammer tooling products and support, we are able to provide hard-rock and soft-rock top-hammer tooling solutions for the local mining markets.”
