L Lynch, a major name in the UK plant hire industry, has ordered Articulated Dump Trucks (ADTs) from Bell Equipment for the first time.

The deal for 20 Bell B30Es is part of a substantial investment by L Lynch, as the company capitalises on the current upswing in construction and infrastructure projects across the UK.

With depots nationwide and a fleet that is more than 2,000 strong, L Lynch depends on the supply of high-quality plant equipment. The selection of Bell followed an extensive investigation into the UK ADT market. 

“We were looking for robust, reliable machines that are versatile enough for use in a number of working environments, and cost-effective enough to be suitable for hire,” explains Merrill Lynch, Director at L Lynch.

“While we have never bought Bell directly before, we have experience of their ADTs from rehire, as well as a strong feeling from customers that the Bell brand is well regarded.”

The 30-ton capacity B30E has been chosen for the practicality of its size. “It’s a versatile mid-range option that appeals to a wide cross-section of our customers, and we are sure it will prove popular,” confirms Merrill Lynch.

Bell machines are fitted with the company's proprietary Fleetm@tic software, which will enable L Lynch plant managers to monitor the efficiency of each machine. Amongst other features, Fleetm@tic provides real-time data on fuel usage and loading capacity, as well as alerts on breakdowns or servicing.

Initially, the Bell machines will be utilised on a project being hired out of the L Lynch depot in Bridgwater, Somerset. The first B30Es to be delivered are already hard at work and the initial response from the site has been excellent. 

“The performance is good, the operators are happy and the Fleetm@tic data shows excellent fuel economy – all factors that reinforce the wisdom of selecting Bell.”

Nick Learoyd, Managing Director of Bell Equipment UK adds: “L Lynch enjoys an exceptional reputation in the UK plant hire market, and rightly so. We’re delighted that they have chosen Bell for the first time and we are confident that this is only the start of a long and mutually advantageous relationship.”
