    Hello We have 2 older Bell B20B articulated dump trucks. 1997 year manufacture
    I'm looking for a parts supplier anywhere in the world that may carry parts for these older models. Used and / or new.
    Please drop me a line if you've got some ideas.
    Thanks Michael. IMG_7944.jpg

    Hi Oldboy,

    as far as I remember these trucks were driven by ADE engines (licence Mercedes?) and ZF 6WG180 trannies. Axles possibly Bell itself?

    Have you tried contacting Bell, at their main offices in South Africa? They advertise worldwide sales, parts, and service. Sorry I can't be of more help. Also, I believe Bell trucks are also John Deere trucks. Might try a John Deere construction dealer.

    Thanks Jeff, we have tried the dealer in SA and its a very slow process but not impossible. Ideally id like a more motivated supply company but we will keep looking. thanks for the suggestion regarding the JD people. cheers Michael.
