Four new Bell ADTs for Hawk Plant

Bell B20E articulated dumptruck

Company continues to invest in Bell Equipment with purchase of four B20E articulated dumptrucks

HAWK Plant Hire, part of the Hawk Group of companies, have purchased a further four Bell Equipment B20E articulated dumptrucks.

The company’s ever-expanding fleet has featured Bell ADTs for two years, first B40Ds and then B20Es. Both models have, since their introduction, received high customer demand; a call that has led Hawk to purchase the four additional B20Es as part of their most recent investment programme.

‘We are always keen to secure the machines our customers ask for most regularly. This has certainly been the case with the B20E,’ said Hawk director-general manager Paul Allman.
‘The model offers proven versatility and performs well in testing ground conditions.

‘Our customers frequently comment on its cutting-edge technology, reduced running costs, limited downtime and impressively low emissions. Hearing these observations first hand gives us confirmation that the B20E really is working well in the field.’ 

Commenting on Hawk’s decision to add to their B20E vehicle tally, Nick Learoyd, managing director of Bell Equipment UK, said: ‘We’re delighted to hear that Hawk’s customers are benefiting from the capabilities of the B20E.

‘It’s a superb addition to any fleet, as it comes from the same stable as the acclaimed B30E, B40E and B50E, with comparable features and aptitude; however, it’s more compact, making it ideal for earthmoving tasks where space is limited.

‘The machine has been a huge hit since we introduced it to the UK market last year, presenting itself as a favoured workhorse on water-rich or peaty sites. It offers the same power-to-weight ratio as our B30E – 5.11kW/tonne – and as it’s fitted with wet brakes to offer sealed protection against deep mud. It’s in its element where ground conditions can be challenging.’
