As a global leader in articulated dump trucks, Bell Trucks brings the articulated dump trucks to markets in the United States and Mexico.

The Bell D-series ADTs handle heaped payloads with faster cycle times and best-in-class fuel efficiency, allowing contractors to move more material at lower cost. They're also highly reliable, with high-strength, welded-alloy steel chassis and components that are durable and optimized to reduce unnecessary weight. The trucks feature oscillating frame joint, articulated steering and high-floatation tires, which is ideal for poor weather conditions or steep grades, according to the company.

Features include:

• Efficient viscous direct-drive engine fans in all Bell trucks provide engine and charge-air cooling

• Fully enclosed, dual circuit wet disc brakes, which offer superior braking performance and extended service life essential for wet and muddy conditions. Oil-immersed wet-disc brakes are virtually maintenance-free.

• Engine braking coupled with automated transmission retardation provides enhanced braking power, which reduces service brake wear.

• Hydraulic, transmission and transfer case oil coolers employ a hydraulically driven fan that runs only as needed or when engine loading is low, helping conserve power and fuel.

• Intelligent traction control provides increased traction in poor underfoot conditions.

• The best-in-class payload-to-weight ratio means that more of the fuel cost is spent moving the material, not the machine — decreasing cost per ton.

• Automatic retardation slows the truck when the operator backs off the accelerator pedal — for more confidence on steep grades and enhanced brake life.

• A fully automatic six-speed planetary transmission with torque converter lock up maximizes fuel efficiency.

• Electronic unit injection fuel system provides high injection pressures even at low engine speed for improved cold starting ability, low-speed response, and reduced emissions.

• Fully automated controlled traction differentials and transfer case diff-lock provide a traction boost in poor underfoot conditions.
