Femco Case Study: Bell Equipment

Why Bell Equipment Uses Femco on Their Vehicles

Manufacturers often need to drain fluids from their vehicles from difficult-to-reach positions or want to offer their customers an easy method of changing fluids. That is precisely why Bell Equipment opted to use Femco plugs on their products. Bell Equipment manufactures a wide range of heavy-duty vehicles such as tractor loader backhoes, rigid and articulated haulers and tri-wheeler rough terrain material handling equipment. We asked Nick Kyriacos (articulated dump truck product manager at Bell Equipment) about the thought process behind choosing Femco drain plugs and where customers can expect to find this drain technology on Bell machines. According to Nick: “Bell utilised the Femco plugs on the E-series ADTs. Its use was initially intended to improve access to the engine oil drain plug that would otherwise have required removing a belly plate for access. The pleasing results led Bell to install the Femco plugs onto the hydraulic tank and transmission sump as well.”

What Femco Offers Bell Equipment’s Customers

Femco plugs have a solid brass construction, meaning Femco can offer a lifetime warranty on all Femco plugs. This durability gives Bell Equipment the assurance that its customers can consistently drain all types of fluids from their vehicles for many years to come. The Femco plug has given Bell the opportunity to position the drainage point remotely, simplifying and speeding up the oil drainage process.
