THE Raymond Brown Group has yet again turned to Bell Equipment after purchasing further Bell articulated dump trucks and wheeled loaders to add to the company’s already substantial fleet.
The recent purchases comprise two Bell B40D 40-tonne ADTs and two Bell L2016 loaders.
The latter brings the total of Bell L2106E loaders purchased by the Hampshire-based firm to 10 since the beginning of 2012.
Both of the Bell B40Ds have been put to task within Raymond Brown Aggregates, Binnegar Quarry Wareham, Dorset, where dry screened and specialist washed sands are processed in preparation for a range of construction applications.
The latest loading shovels are working in very different applications, at an aggregate wash plant and recycling centre near Portsmouth and at the companies Marchwood wharf near Southampton. Here the operational demands of handling wood and glass are rigorous, with plant often working long hours to meet the demands of shipping.
Nick Moth, Group Plant manager at Raymond Brown explained, “Experience has shown us first-hand just what Bell’s equipment is capable of, so when the time came for us to update our existing plant, we once again turned to the company we’ve come to know and trust.”
The recent acquisitions have served to further the already sound relationship between Bell, and the Raymond Brown Group in this, the company’s 60th year of trading.
Nick Learoyd, managing director of Bell Equipment UK, said, “The number of machines purchased by Raymond Brown in recent months comes as terrific news to the Bell Equipment team, both in terms of product confidence and economic boost. We’re pleased to report that operators and site managers have been equally impressed with the new equipment’s capabilities, which only further reinforces our own belief that we’re creating some of the very best loaders and ADTs the market has to offer.”
