Bell to unveil
E-Series ADT at Hillhead
Bell Equipment will be giving Hillhead visitors a glimpse of the
future with the unveiling of its much-anticipated E-Series ADT.
With a new-shape hood, more imposing styling and extensive
technological improvements, the E-series looks well poised to grow
Bell Equipment’s proud heritage as a premium ADT supplier and is planned to go into production
in 2013.
Bell is keeping certain improvements a closely guarded secret, but the E-Series promises higher payloads across the
range as well as improved safety features and better durability.
The 30 tonne B30E on show at Hillhead will share the stand with a selection of Bell’s current D-Series ADTs, launched
more than a decade ago.
The company will also be exhibiting four wheeled loaders, which are
known for their high-specification, high productivity and low downtime
since their launch in 2008.
The company will also use Hillhead to drive home the importance
of fuel-efficiency, which Bell has championed long before the current
rise in fuel prices. Coupled with innovations such as Bell’s advanced
Fleetm@tic telematics system, Bell has helped operators drive down
production costs by as much as 15 per cent.
Neville Paynter, managing director of Bell UK, said, “The E-Series
has been in development for the past five years, and is still undergoing
the most stringent testing procedures we’ve ever carried out.
“The ‘E’ very much stands for ‘Evolutionary’, as we have very
much built on the fine legacy of our D–Series range and our decades
of experience in design and manufacture rather than opt for a
revolutionary clean-sheet design.
“It will be some time before the E-Series arrives in the UK, but we
hope showing this B30E at Hillhead will create a clear message that
Bell continues to provide its customers with technology capable of boosting production and reducing
costs.”
Bell Equipment has a tradition of pioneering industry firsts and these ground-breaking ADT innovations will be in its
new generation of trucks, including standard onboard weighing, keyless ignition, Hill Assist, i-Tip with inclinometer, Auto
Park Application (APA) and standard Turbo Spin Protection.
