Bulk handling specialist G A Smith Ltd has solidified its relationship with Bell Equipment following the purchase of three B30E Articulated Dump Trucks (ADTs), which brings the total number of Bell machines in the company’s fleet to 10, representing one-third of the G A Smith fleet.

The company only began its association with Bell in 2013, but the consistently excellent performance of the Bell ADTs has impressed managing director, George Smith.

“Bell is good on fuel, good on service and good on reliability,” he explains. “Feedback from drivers has also been positive.”

Initally, G A Smith ordered four coal trucks from Bell – customised B40Ds fitted with a specialist coal extension –  which George Smith confirms have been “bomb-proof. They have been running extensively in a demanding environment without any significant downtime, giving us every confidence that standard Bell ADTs would serve us well for contract and hire work.”

Having brought in its first three B30Es in 2014, G A Smith has repeated the order to bring its total number of Bell machines to 10 – six B30Es, plus the four coal trucks.

The latest additions are already hard at work in the field on a variety of contracts, reflecting G A Smith’s growth over the past few years.

“We’ve been very busy and work is progressing steadily, so it makes sense to invest in a reliable, fuel-efficient brand like Bell. The company takes pride in every last detail, even down to aesthetics; they produce one of the nicest looking trucks on the market.”

Nick Learoyd, Managing Director of Bell Equipment UK, comments: “G A Smith was relatively unfamiliar with Bell when we began discussing their needs two years ago. The rapid growth of Bell within their fleet to 1/3 of its machines reflects the quality of manufacture and service across our range.”
