The Bell Trucks B45E

In the Bell E Series of trucks, the B45E is one of the three most powerful options available to you. You might still consider it to be in the middle of the lineup, but it is certainly in the high-end of the middle and is a great option if you want a lot of power, but do not quite need the highest amount of muscle available. The B45E is powered by a 12.8L Mercedes-Benz engine that delivers up to 523 hp and up to 1,814 lb-ft of torque for great overall performance and the ability to handle just about anything you can throw at it.

When it comes to payload, the B45E is rated to handle more than 90,000 lbs, which allows you to haul massive amounts of dirt, rock, or aggregate materials. The bin on the Bell Trucks B45E has a struck capacity of 25.5 cu.yd. and an SAE 2:1 capacity of 33 cu.yd. with an SAE 2:1 capacity with the tailgate of 34 cu.yd. It offers an SAE 1:1 capacity of up to 38 cu.yd., and has a dumping system that can raise the bin in 11 seconds, lower it in 6 seconds, and has a 70-degree standard tipping angle.

Check Out the Bell E Series of Trucks

Overall, the Bell E Series of trucks includes truly exceptional models that give you incredible power and a number of fantastic features, no matter which ADT, in particular, you look at. All of them are powered by Mercedes-Benz engines of varying displacements and provide different amounts of horsepower and torque based on the truck model. They all feature permanent six-wheel drive designed to keep your truck operator in control at all times, with an exhaust brake system that helps with descent control on steep slopes.

The safety features on the Bell E Series of trucks are excellent and designed to keep your operator and everyone else at a job site as safe as possible. These include a safe tip function that prevents lifting of the rear bin if the rear chassis roll exceeds a pre-set value, to help avoid a disaster due to operator error. The rear suspension is designed to keep the rear wheels on the ground during even the most demanding use, and there is an on-board weighing system that keeps the operator informed of the load weight in real-time to avoid overloading.

The [email protected] system may well be the most impressive feature in the Bell E Series, however, providing you with information about your truck at all times. This is a computer system that tracks data about your trucks performance and sends it to you so you can view the information wherever you are: on your phone, tablet, or computer. The information included covers general performance stats, error messages, and it can even report operator error or abuse to warn you about issues that might be happening when you are not at a job site. With the [email protected] system, you can always keep an eye on your equipment and know that it is being used properly.
