AVANT has been known from its telescopic boom for a long time. The telescopic boom makes it possible to have a very compact machine with a greater lifting capacity. When the telescopic boom is retracted it is possible to lift a huge amount of weight. With the boom fully extended, the reach and lifting height are unparalleled.
Avant has developed an innovative solution for improving the performance of the drive circuit in Avant loaders. In Optidrive™ drive circuit the amount of hydraulic hoses and fittings has been radically reduced and optimized.
Benefits of the Optidrive™ drive circuit:
- 10% better performance
- 60% less hydraulic connections
- 20% less hoses
- Less heat build up – in Optidrive™ the amount of flushing oil in the drive motors is 5 times bigger compared to the old system, providing a far better cooling of the drive circuit
- Parking brake in rear wheels guarantees the best possible grip on all load and terrain situations
- Less engine vibrations and noice thanks to the new engine mounts (vibration dampers). The vibrations have reduced by 37 % on Avant 755i and 760i.
- Better hydraulic connector system
- Better servicing
The AVANT Attachment Connection System is a simple and easy way of connecting the attachment. The mechanical connection system is half automatic. It means that the attachment can be connected and locked directly from the cab by tilting the attachment back.
The Hydraulic Quick Attachment Coupling Plate is another way to connect to attachments and is available as an option. This quick attachment plate is operated from the cabin of the loader and makes it possible to release and open the connection without leaving the cab. The Hydraulic Multi Connector System of Avant is the most advanced in the market. Easy connecting and detaching is also possible with engine running and/or pressure on attachment. Connection works in all situations and it cannot be connected in the wrong way. The mechanism is leak free, so changing the attachment is no longer a messy and there is no oil drip while detaching.
The articulated loaders of AVANT are very easy to drive. The loader is controlled from the steering wheel and forward or reverse driving is controlled with two pedals. The machine's compact dimensions facilitate driving, because operator can see the whole machine and attachment while sitting in the driver´s seat. Even if you don´t have any previous experience driving machines, you can learn to drive an AVANT with just few hours of practice.
The new AVANT 760i is the fastest model of Avant loaders reaching speeds up to 18.5 mph. This speed allows the new 760i to compete with bigger machines in all market segments.
