Bell Contracting buys Mecalac dumpers

Bell Contracting, based in Forest of Dean, has purchased six new Mecalac 9MDX cabbed dumpers for earthmoving projects in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The 9MDX dumpers were bought from Kellands Plant Sales, Mecalac’s dealer for Somerset and the surrounding areas.

Featuring a curved glass cab and boasting a skip payload of nine tonnes, the dumpers run a 3.4-litre Perkins 854 IIIB-compliant engine generating 74hp and 424Nm of torque, and complete with a DPF. Mecalac’s ‘Shield’ technology upgrade pack adds start/drive interlock, handbrake warning, front-facing camera, fuel loss warning, Stop-Start Control, idle shut-off and park brake test. As part of the purchase agreement, Bell Contracting upgraded to Shield PRO, which adds skip interlock, tilt limit, rollover lockout, custom speed limiter and idle shut-off (via Bluetooth, iPad or Android tablet) to the existing features.
