D-Series Articulated Dump Trucks

If you’re looking to deliver more to your bottom line, choose Bell Articulated Dump Trucks.

Get more from your truck.

These D-series ADTs handle heaped payloads with faster cycle times and best-in-class fuel efficiency – so you’ll move more material at lower cost. They’re highly reliable too, with high-strength, welded-alloy steel chassis and components that are durable and optimized to reduce unnecessary weight. And with their oscillating frame joint, articulated steering and high-floatation tires, these hard working haulers won’t let wet weather or steep grades dampen your plans.

Why Choose a Bell D-Series?

  • Efficient viscous direct-drive engine fans in all Bell trucks provide engine and charge-air cooling.
  • Fully enclosed, dual circuit wet disc brakes offer superior braking performance and extended service life essential for wet and muddy conditions. Oil-immersed wet-disc brakes are virtually maintenance-free.
  • Class leading engine braking coupled with automated transmission retardation provides superior braking power and reduces service brake wear.
  • Hydraulic, transmission and transfer case oil coolers employ a hydraulically driven fan that runs only as needed or when engine loading is low, helping conserve power and fuel.
  • Intelligent traction control provides superior traction in poor underfoot conditions.
  • The best-in-class payload-to-weight ratio means that more of your fuel cost is spent moving the material, not the machine – decreasing your cost per ton.
  • Automatic retardation slows the truck when the operator backs off the accelerator pedal – for more confidence on steep grades and enhanced brake life.
  • An industry leading, fully automatic six-speed planetary transmission with torque converter lock up maximizes fuel efficiency.
  • Electronic unit injection fuel system provides high injection pressures even at low engine speed for improved cold starting ability, low-speed response, and reduced emissions.
  • Fully automated controlled traction differentials and transfer case diff-lock provide a traction boost in poor underfoot conditions.

Up-Time Boosting Features

D-Series ADT Intra-Axel

Inter-Axle Differential

Transfer case inter-axle differential delivers equal torque to each axle when traction is favorable.  When conditions get ugly, engage the diff-lock on the go to deliver torque to the tires that can best use it.

D-Series High Suspension Travel Axles

High Suspension Travel Axles

The central oscillation joint, high suspension travel on all axles, and balanced weight distribution provide the agility and ability to navigate hostile terrain.

D-Series ADTs Optional Tailgate

Optional Tailgate

Optional tailgate is available for better material retention.  The tailgate opens as the bin is raised for dumping.  Tie-down straps maintain positive seal throughout haul, ensuring minimal material is lost.

D-Series ADT Taper Bearings

Taper Roller Bearings

High-strength steel and widely spaced taper roller bearings in the articulation area enhance long-term durability.

Bringing you tomorrow’s technology today

A combination of an optimally tuned engine and weight optimized complete machine package ensure that Bell ADTs have a minimal carbon footprint.

Bell Equipment is an industry leader in fuel-efficient emission control with the introduction of SCR-technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction) to be compliant to Stage IIIB & Tier 4i emission standards. Called Bell Blu@dvantageTM, it is an SCR package designed specifically for the off-highway market.

  • AdBlue™ is non-toxic, odorless and simple to refill.
  • AdBlue™ is injected into the flow of the exhaust gases and reacts with the NOx gases in the catalytic convertor to form harmless Nitrogen and water.
  • Field tests on the new Blu@dvantageTM system show up to 15% saving in fuel over previous Bell ADTs.
  • AdBlue™ usage is approximately 3-5% of your fuel usage.
