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 Bell's current D-Series ADTs, renowned for their continual technical improvements and reliability since the series was launched more than a decade ago.
Bell will also be exhibiting four wheeled loaders, which have become the industry benchmark for 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.
Bell will be on Stand V1 at Hillhead 2012.
