Kelly is a crane.
Kelly is a wise old crane, and is the oldest machine in the Pack. He once had trouble with the wind, as it was blowing him over, but he managed to rescue Isobella and a piano on a very windy day. He also helped stable the Lightning Tree with Alfie and Oliver after Max and Monty rammed into it.
Kelly is good at heart and gets along with everyone. He is good friends with Isobella. He is seen by many as the team's leader, and is usually given the most dangerous work to do. He will not be rushed and understands that work of this kind takes extreme care. Kelly used to have a slight fear of strong winds, but he conquered that fear when he rescued Isobella.
Kelly is dark blue with a cream crane arm and red lining. His wheels are dark blue with red lining. He has the number 17 painted on his sides in white.
