Bauma 2015


Always the star of the show at any expo involving construction, mining or agricultural machines, AVANT was present with a stall at the recently concluded BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA event, which took place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre from Tuesday, September 15 to Friday, September 18.

BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA is an international trade fair involving construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction vehicles, and is attended by many key industry players each year.

Representatives of AVANT SA were proudly available to answer questions, give out product information and demonstrate the latest innovations concerning the AVANT machines, and the crowds that attended the expo were impressed with the capabilities of the versatile machines and their new developments.

AVANT SA took advantage of the four day event to unveil a few new elements of their product offering following a great deal of work that went into research and development.

Amongst the new improvements was a remote controlled AVANT machine which has been specially designed and developed in South Africa for use in the mining industry.

This is incredibly valuable, as it means that these machines can be used in dangerous areas such as mine shafts or on ground that is unstable without putting a life in jeopardy, thanks to the innovative remote controlled access that the operator will now enjoy.

Other elements that were unveiled included flame proof AVANT machines, as well as the awaited launch of the powerful and environmentally friendly AVANT 760i, a completely new model which also happens to be the biggest loader from the company (pictured above). More information on the AVANT 760i can be found at this previous blog post.
