New advanced payload system from Bell
Bell UK launch an advanced payload system (APS) for the company’s full range of wheel loaders
BELL Equipment UK have launched their own advanced payload system (APS) as an optional extra on their entire range of wheel loaders, to help customers improve their operating efficiency by providing extremely accurate payload data.
The Bell-branded system can be easily added as a ‘plug and play’ option to any Bell loader for customers who want more information than that provided by the existing embedded payload system (EPS), which is factory-fitted as standard on all machines.
Neville Paynter, managing director of Bell Equipment UK, said: ‘Production costs are continually increasing, so we wanted to help our customers do what they can to improve efficiency. It is part of our on-going commitment to helping operators improve their bottom line.’
The new payload system allows target load input, multiple material measurements, multiple attachment calibration, batch loading data where the operator mixes materials, and recall and subtract of last bucket load, which can help counteract one-off errors.
The system is also available with an optional printer and data download facility. The upgrade uses an additional monitor in the cab, with a clear display featuring large numbers and easy-to-use press-button input functions.
Bell say their new APS is much less expensive to buy than a third-party system, primarily because the company’s high-specification wheel loaders already have most of the required components built in as standard, including sensors and harnesses.
Carl Woollaston, sales support manager for Bell UK, said: ‘We’ve taken every step we can think of to maximize efficiency and productivity for our customers. This new advanced payload system can really help an operator save even more time and money – which is an absolute priority in the current climate.’
