Stevens Equipment Rental, formerly Peter Stevens Dumptruck Hire, has announced the expansion of its fleet with the acquisition of several Bell Equipment ADTs (Articulated Dump Trucks) and wheeled loaders.
In 2013, Stevens Equipment Rental’s fleet renewal program saw the addition of a number of new machines deemed fit for meeting the demanding requirements of the short and long term rental market. Among the purchases were two Bell L2606E loaders, two B30D articulated dump trucks and two B30E articulated dump trucks from the new E-Series range.
High performance equipment
Commenting on the fleet expansion, Russell McLean, rental manager at Stevens Equipment Rental, said: “As a busy equipment rental firm, our equipment is really tested to its limits, whether that involves working in a quarrying, earthmoving or material handling on a port. The machines we supply regularly see the full brunt of a heavy load or the intensity of a 24/7 shift pattern, so the equipment needs to be sound, high performing and reliable. Our customers count on us to supply the most capable kit, and in turn we count on our supplier to do the same.
“This is where Bell Equipment fits in. We introduced our first Bell articulated dump trucks to the fleet back in 2008. Such was the performance, that we have since increased our Bell stock considerably. We’ve invested in many more Bell Equipment Wheeled Loaders and ADTs, each with a different spec designed to excel at specific functions. The performance of each machine has been so strong, that at renewal time, we’ve replaced like with like, returning to Bell for the performance, quality and superb service.”
Bell ADT design
The latest orders include two B30Es, part of the E-series that represents an evolution in Bell ADT design. The E-series builds upon the proven legacy of the successful D-series, in order to deliver production boosting payloads, lower daily operating costs, superior ride quality and uncompromised safety standards.
McLean added that the E-series models offer the ideal combination of new features alongside trusted elements. “We’re drawn to Bell’s reliability, power and fuel-efficiency, and all of these aspects are strong in the E-series ADTs, boosted by 6x6-technology and advanced engine design.”
Reliable customer service
Bell managing director, Nick Learoyd, added: “Stevens Equipment Rental Limited are not only a long established family firm, but also has a growing international presence. To be considered a manufacturer and supplier of choice, and secure repeated purchases by such a significant customer is extremely encouraging and we’re delighted that the quality and specification of our machines, matched by the reliable customer service, has positioned us so favourably with them.”
