Bell's new 45 ton (41 tonne) capacity ADT, the B45D.

New from Bell is the B45D, a 45 ton (40,9 tonne) articulated dump truck, which fills a gap between its B40D and B50D models.

Based on the larger B50D, the new addition shares many common components with its bigger brother. As well as having advantages for spare parts inventory, this also means the B4D is built with "Upsized" compnents.

Power comes from the same Merecedez Benz engine found in the B50D, but power is 350 KW, compared to 390 kW on the larger truck.

Standard features include Bell's Fleetm@tic diagnostic, on-board weighing and tracking system, and the company's Comfort Ride system is an option.
