Bell triple for John F Hunt
By Lindsay Gale26 May 2015
Bell Equipment has supplied UK contractor John F Hunt with three 25 tonne B25E articulated dump trucks (ADTs) for land remediation work on a major contract recently won by the latter company. They join two D-Series ADTs that have been in the contractor’s fleet for the last nine years.
John Yeldham, depot manager at John F Hunt, explained: “The Bell dump trucks are reliable and hardworking and we’ve experienced very little downtime. On the rare occasions we’ve needed help, Bell has provided a great back-up service. The Bell B25E is the ideal size for our purposes and we’re getting the excellent results we anticipated.”
The new generation E-Series offers increased production payloads, lower daily operating costs and superior ride quality, with Bell claiming the lowest fuel cost per tonne on the market for its machines. The smallest in the Bell ADT range, the B25E reflects the importance of having a high-quality, robust dump truck capable of working within the often confined spaces resulting from a demolition.
“It is, in part, for applications such as these that we supply a 25-ton ADT, so we’re delighted that John F Hunt has recognised the advantages of choosing a smaller machine capable of exceeding expectations in tight working environments,” confirmed Richard Higgott, sales and marketing manager at Bell Equipment UK.
