Bell Equipment Company was founded in 1951 by Dorman Bell as the exclusive dealer for Elgin Sweeper Company covering the lower peninsula of the State of Michigan. Since then, many lines have been added and our territories have expanded. We are now in the third generation of Bell family ownership. We are grateful for the many customers, manufacturers and employees who have crossed our threshold as we enter our 69th year of business.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
First and foremast, I hope this finds you safe, well and in good health. My, how our world has suddenly changed. We, like you, are doing all of the prudent things to protect our employees and have modified the way we do business. As we enter our 69th year of business, we want you to know that we are more committed than ever to bringing you the products, service and support that you have come to expect from Bell Equipment Company. I offer my sincere gratitude for your support over many years and, God willing, look forward to enjoying our relationships for many more years to come. Be safe, be well!

SERVICE TECH SPOTLIGHT
These retrofits replace an EZ pack OEM arm with a Heil Python® automated arm. The total process takes about 1-1.5 weeks to complete. This includes removing the original arm, installing the Heil arm and brackets, wiring controls and plumbing in hydraulics. The Heil arm also has autolift capabilities. To date we have completed just over 25 retrofits. We do offer transportation to and from customer’s location as well for these upgrades.
Heil is the leader in automated refuse collection and offers three automated arm configurations which include the Python®, the Rapid Rail® and the new Command SST®.
