AVANT 640 - YMPÄRISTÖRAKENNUS SAARINEN OY (FINLAND)

Ympäristörakennus Saarinen Oy purchased an Avant 640 model for its worksite in early 2013. The company has 10 years of experience with Avants and their reliability, which was good enough proof that there was no need to even consider other alternatives when the time came to buy a new machine.

"The purchasing decision was sealed by Avant's excellent maintenance and warranty services and a very professional salesperson", Entrepreneur Mikko Saarinen, says with satisfaction.

 10 years of experience with Avants and their reliability, which was good enough proof that there was no need to even consider other alternatives when the time came to buy a new machine. "

In a couple of months the new Avant 640 has racked up more than 100 operating hours. It has been used mainly for work involving snow and sand, but in the spring and summer, the new machine will be deployed for many kinds of earthmoving and landscaping tasks. Saarinen plans to use the Avant to lay foundations for asphalt, level soil, and carry out different moving and lifting assignments, among other things.The Avant 640's features make it perfect for landscaping. The ratio between power and size is just right, but even its speed, 13.7 mph, facilitates working on large areas. "We also use an Avant 750. In large contracts these two machines are perfect partners", Saarinen says.

“The Avants are handy general-purpose machines in the yards of apartment buildings and terraced houses that have large surface areas but tight spaces for working. The new Avant 640 has smaller external dimensions, which make it handier and more agile than the Avant 750. There is a difference when transporting the machines: the 640 can be effortlessly moved from one site to the next with a trailer and a van, whereas the Avant 750 requires a lorry", Saarinen says, comparing the machines.

Saarinen finds the Avant 640 to be a  perfect machine for year-round use at YRS: it is agile and powerful, and it can be moved around rapidly. In addition to its speed, Saarinen is pleased with the machine's LX cabin, which is spacious and has good sound insulation. The range of attachments, including a rotary harrow, a backhoe, a brush, a plough and a sand spreader, makes the machine truly versatile.

Saarinen recommends testing the Avant 640 machine to all companies in the earthmoving and landscaping industries, because this model combines all the features required by work in the sector, such as versatility, an excellent power-weight ratio, durability in heavy-duty use year round, and an extensive and efficient sales and maintenance organisation.

Avants have been trusted machines in our family business since the very beginning”
