E. Corr Plant Hire enables winter month excavation with fleet addition of 2 Bell B20Es

Published: 07 August 2018

Dedicated and diverse construction services operation, E. Corr Plant Hire, has extended seasonal capabilities for its client base by bringing two new Bell Equipment B20Es to its fleet.

The machines, which are relatively new to the market but already renowned for delivering low ground pressure advantages, benefit from a design where tyre pressure exerted on the ground is more equally dispersed, making the vehicles ideal for use on soft, marshy or boggy terrain, or when weather conditions deteriorate as winter approaches.

Owner of the East Anglian-based family firm, Brendan Corr, is already a familiar customer of Bell Equipment, and currently has four B30Ds successfully performing for his operation; a yard that has grown considerably over the past 30 years from a service of just two vehicles, to a successful fleet of over 140 plant machines.

“We pride ourselves on having an ability to meet the construction needs of our diverse client base,” he explains, “with many of our customers keen to excavate for as much of the year as possible.

“We had been looking to source a capable ADT model with high floatation features to effectively perform for clients working within a variety of construction disciplines as the seasons become less clement, and ground conditions naturally become more challenging.”

Having worked with Bell in the past, Brendan was confident that he could rely on the manufacturer’s design expertise, ever-advancing technologies and sound customer service.

The B20E is a Tier 4 F certified, 6x6 truck, manufactured for ease of operation and high production values. It offers very similar power-to-weight ratios to other Bell ADTs - the B25E and B30E - and confidently provides the optimum balance between performance and fuel consumption.

While the machines could be the key to E. Corr’s clients working extended weeks on site, they will also perform effectively within general excavation projects, in addition to a specific area of construction in which E. Corr specialises:

“We supply machines to clients undertaking archaeological excavations, prior to housing development,” Brendan explains.

“The low ground pressure of the Bell B20E makes it an ideal machine to perform in this role, as its tyre-weight distribution will prevent it from damaging earth on site, even in wet, muddy conditions. We’re excited to see how it delivers in this environment.”

Simon Bridge, Bell Equipment’s Regional Sales Manager South East, has been delighted to supply the reputable plant hire firm with its latest acquisitions, which will be made available mainly to construction companies within a 50-mile radius of Stansted Airport.

“Working with E. Corr again has been a terrific experience. The B20E machines we’ve supplied are ideally suited to the needs of the company’s varied client base, and I’m confident the vehicles capabilities, resilience and reliabilities will serve Brendan and his customers well, for many years to come.”
