New Bell E-Series designed to deliver maximum productivity and profitability
The new Bell E-Series Articulated Dump Trucks (ADTs) represent Bell Equipment’s strong heritage as a world-class ADT specialist. The B25E and B30E models build upon the success of the D-Series and shift ADT functionality to new industry standards.
Bell’s evolutionary approach to design delivers production boosting payloads, lower daily operating costs, superior ride quality and uncompromised safety standards.
Advanced emissions technology provides rapid engine response and dependable cold-start performance, faster haul cycles and improved fuel efficiency – creating a truck that moves more material at a lower cost-per-tonne for maximum productivity and profitability.
Purpose-built for harsh conditions, the new E-Series incorporates a central oscillation joint, high suspension travel on all axles, and balanced weight distribution for greater agility when navigating across varied terrain.
Best-in-class dual engine braking coupled with automated transmission retardation contributes to greater retarding power and reduced brake wear – retarder aggressiveness can be adjusted to ensure controlled descent in all conditions. High-strength welded-alloy steel chassis and reinforced articulation joints offer greater strength and durability with a lower machine mass to reduce powertrain and structural stress.
Utilising the latest in automotive technology, the E-Series takes the operator experience to new heights.
A sound-suppressed cab features strategically positioned controls, an advanced diagnostic monitor and a sealed-switch module for convenient, fingertip operation of multiple functions.
Operator performance is optimised with the integration of a 10” colour screen and an automotive mouse to control the interface – the first ADT to offer this technology.
Modern machine styling and cab ergonomics offer improved visibility through a high visibility mirror package and the positioning of lights higher in the truck body.
The adaptive transmission control adjusts clutch engagement for smooth and consistent shifts throughout the life of the truck.
Incorporating advanced hauling capabilities and customer-inspired features, the E-Series also delivers groundbreaking innovations to further develop its status as a leader in safety.
Independent features such as Keyless Start, Hill Start Assist, Bin Tip Prevention, Auto Park Application (APA), Standard Turbo Spin Protection and On-Board Weighing (OBW) remain standard in the E-Series. For improved safety and productivity, the E-Series has an automatic Inter-axle Differential Lock (IDL) giving the vehicle full Automatic Traction Control.
The park brake automatically applies when neutral is selected on hill starts. It is only released once a pre-programmable engine torque has been reached to ensure a controlled pull-away with no rollback, even on the steepest of inclines. The slope is calculated by the exclusive on-board inclinometer – another Bell ADT first.
With Bell Equipment’s continuous development philosophy, the E-Series platform will take the company well into the future and further strengthen its pedigree as the ADT specialist.
