Kelston Sparkes’ has assembled the largest fleet of Bell Equipment B50 articulated dump trucks (ADTs) in Europe after committing to purchase four B50E models.
One of the largest and most recognised earthmoving contractors in the UK, Kelston Sparkes will use the new additions for load-and-carry quarrying operations. The B50E ADT quartet add to the company’s existing fleet of 10 B50Ds that has
run successfully since 2014.
Rob Stark, director of Kelston Sparkes, said the B50Es substantial size was a key factor behind the company’s purchasing decision. Highlighting other benefits of running an all-Bell Equipment ADT fleet, he said: “One of the main reasons
for continuing to buy from Bell Equipment has been the operational ease and project management benefits of the company’s Fleetm@tic system. In addition, we’ve been pleased with the Bell ADTs’ competitive fuel consumption levels. We’ve
had a positive buying experience and are happy to work with Bell.”
Nick Learoyd, managing director at Bell Equipment UK, added: “We’re delighted to have had the opportunity to once again supply Kelston Sparkes. The B50E’s size and capabilities make it distinctive within the market and a ‘fit for purpose machine’ intended for really big jobs.''
