May Heavy Equipment, a rental company based in Columbia, S.C., now represents the NorAm 65E compact motor grader, the company said. MHE, founded by Bert and Jacob May in 1997, has locations in North and South Carolina and sells and rents a variety of heavy earthmoving and compaction equipment throughout the Southeast.

NorAm has been marketing the machine since 1993, following in a 65-year heritage of compact graders which began with the Allis Chalmers model D in 1949, later evolving into the Fiatallis model 65B.

“We are very pleased to have May Heavy Equipment join our team,” said Dave Watson, vice president of NorAm. “May Heavy Equipment is a very highly respected growing dealership with a professional sales, rental and support team. Their philosophy of providing top quality equipment, excellent service, and competitive prices is just what we look for in a dealer. There is a very substantial population of older Fiatallis and NorAm machines working throughout South Carolina and I am very confident that there will be many more new NorAm 65E graders working in the Palmetto state.”

Richie Ambrose, May Heavy equipment vice president said the company spends a lot of time evaluating new product lines. “The NorAm 65E is a proven market leader with excellent reliability, value and customer acceptance.”

NorAm markets the 65E compact motor grader in the United States, Canada and Australia through its dealer network.
