The Bell E Series ADT is also equipped with a 10” colour monitor that supplies the operator with operating information, diagnostic readings, the settings for the dump body and even safety warnings.
Equipped with an automotive controller that provides the operator with menu navigation on the 10” colour monitor, you will also find a sealed switch module offering numerous productivity settings at your fingertips. These functions include everything from Keyless Strat and Retarder Aggressiveness, to Dump Body Upper Limit and Speed Control.
