Appeal of Tier 4-certified B30E ADT furthers relationship between Bell Equipment and MJ Church
MJ Church, the Wiltshire-based civil engineering, earthworks and waste-management contractors, have further strengthened their already extensive plant fleet with the addition of 10 new Bell Equipment B30E articulated dumptrucks (ADTs).
With a number of machines in the company’s existing fleet ready for replacement, plus an interest in Bell Equipment’s latest Tier 4-certified models, director Tom Church felt it was time for MJ Church to revisit their long-standing supplier relationship with Bell Equipment and discover what benefits upgrading could deliver.
‘We have been dealing with Bell for more than 10 years now, mainly running 30-tonne ADTs as well as a number of loading shovels,’ he explained. ‘With regard to the purchase of these latest machines, we were in a position where we had some older stock which needed replacing. We’d also started looking at the new Bell Equipment machines, which, with their Tier 4 certification, could meet exhaust emission standards and provide lower fuel consumption.
‘We needed equipment we could trust and, for us, that came in the form of the Bell Equipment B30E. These models are renowned for their dynamic engines and impressive level of reliability, as well as low maintenance requirements,’ he said.
‘Of course, price has been an influential element in the selection process, and we felt the B30E offered exceptional value for money in terms of the specification it offers. We also received excellent value for our old B30Ds, which we traded back to Bell Equipment.
‘After-sales service was another key factor, and I’m pleased to say we’ve enjoyed great support over the years from Bell, with any issues quickly resolved.’
Having had such a positive experience of Bell Equipment’s after-sales service, Mr Church has, for first the time, taken up Bell Equipment’s contracted servicing, a scheme applicable to all his new trucks for 6,000 hours.
‘The contracted servicing will be a huge help, especially with the advanced AdBlue and electrical systems that feature within the new Tier 4 engines, and will allow us to keep our machines performing to the very highest of standards for many years to come,’ he said.
‘Nick Learoyd, managing director of Bell Equipment UK, commented: ‘We work closely with our customers in a variety of sectors, to ensure all of our machines are equipped to deal with everything which is asked of them, so it is fantastic to hear that our new models are being so well received, especially by a company such as MJ Church, which has its own very exacting standards.’
