Bell Equipment to showcase largest range of articulated dumptrucks on the market
Bell Equipment will be showcasing the largest range of articulated dumptrucks on the market at this year’s Hillhead show.
The evolved E series, the latest generation of Bell Equipment ADTs, now includes a machine for every application, ranging from the compact B20E to the heavyweight B60E. The entire range comprises the B20E, B25E, B30E, B35E, B40E, B45E, B50E and B60E, all of which have been created to bring together the very best in power, technology, efficiency and innovative design.
The latest addition to the range, the B20E, is already proving popular. With its ability to manoeuvre easily within small spaces and its low ground pressure allowing it to operate in excessively muddy or sandy conditions, it has become a popular choice in industries where compact is king, such as house building and renewable energies.
At the other end of the spectrum, the B60E has already proven itself as a unique solution capable of moving large volumes of materials in all weather conditions, in a market sector that was previously only contested by rigid trucks.
To demonstrate the breadth and capability of the E series, the B20E, B30E, B45E and B60E will be displayed on the Bell Equipment stand, with the B50E being put through its paces in the demonstration area. Powered by the several of the latest Mercedes Benz engines, each model also benefits from a number of ‘standard’ features, including on-board weighing and Fleetm@tic.
‘The E series is an evolution built upon the proven legacy of the D series in order to deliver increased production payloads, reduced daily operating costs, superior ride quality and uncompromised safety standards – and all of these characteristics are carried through each model regardless of size,’ explained Nick Learoyd, managing director of Bell Equipment.
‘The scope of the range is unique to the industry and is not only allowing us to introduce the Bell brand to new industry sectors, but is also giving our customers the opportunity to purchase all of their ADTs, irrespective of tonnage or application, from one manufacturer – providing them with one contact for all of their ADT needs, from purchase to maintenance.’
Alongside the E-series ADTs, Bell Equipment’s L2606 and L1706 wheel loaders will also be on display. The range, which includes the L1204E, L1506E, L1706E, L1806E, L2106E and L2606E, is powerful, yet versatile and all machines are well suited to a variety of applications from heavy-duty mining to construction. Bell’s innovative Quad Cool system, which reduces dust build up and prevents the engine from overheating, also makes the loaders ideal for use in the recycling and waste-management industries.
As well as being able to view the wheel loaders and E-series ADTs, visitors to the stand can also discover more about the new B30E 4x4. With its shorter wheelbase, this new ADT is more manoeuvrable than its six-wheeled counterpart, whilst the absence of a third axle reduces tyre wear, making it a cost-effective, yet efficient, machine.
In addition, Bell representatives will be on hand to discuss the company’s ‘Specials’ offering, a bespoke design service that can transform an ADT to a customer’s precise specifications. This service is of particular interest to the waste and recycling industries, where custom-made bins can help increase productivity and reduce costs.
‘This is the first time we will have a true representation of the scope of the E series on display at Hillhead, and the show is an ideal platform on which to promote the range,’ concluded Mr Learoyd. ‘We are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand to see the extent of the E series, and hopefully help them to find their perfect ADT partner.’
