So the demand is for more efficiency, more productivity, increased reliability and lower cost of ownership.

     One company, Wiltshire-based Earthline, recently evaluated replacement wheel loaders and decided on Bell.

Since its foundation 30 years ago, the company has grown to be one of the largest independent earthmoving, recycling and quarrying companies in the south of England.


Long overdue as a tribute to a great British engineer, the ‘Story of JCB’ exhibition is also a very powerful selling tool for customers.
