A pair of Cat 657E scrapers are used to excavate sandstone to be processed into fill material during the construction of the Rueter-Hess Dam and Reservoir project in Parker, Colorado (2009).
A Cat 375 excavator and two Cat D10 dozers mucking shot rock after a production blast on the Colorado DOT Hogback Parking Lot project in Morrison, Colorado (2008).
Portable crushers are being used to produce sub-base and base-course materials to be used on the Garfield County Airport project in Rifle, Colorado (2010).
Portable screen plants producing washed concrete sand and graded drain gravel for use in the chimney and blanket drains on the Rueter-Hess Dam and Reservoir project in Parker, Colorado (2010).

These services allow our customers to start their projects efficiently, to maximize material production, and ensure that reclamation is completed in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Earthmoving equipment for mass excavation

Kelley Trucking’s fleet of earthmoving equipment has been structured specifically for mass excavation projects, including stripping and overburden removal from new and active mine sites. Our entire equipment fleet is continuously maintained in top condition, which ensures less down time and more productivity.

CAT scrapers

Our fleet of Cat 657E scrapers can move more than twice the volume of material in less time than an equal number of smaller series scrapers. Fewer machines needed to do the same job can provide many benefits, including less down-time, fewer employee-related issues, faster mobilization and demobilization. These factors make the Cat 657’s perfect for large volume mass excavation projects.

Cat 631 push scrapers are well suited for mass excavation projects that involve bank or stockpiled materials of a larger material size such as pit run or shot rock.

Cat 627G scrapers can be used for a host of mass excavation operations but are most useful in pit stripping and site reclamation.
