The flagship of the range, Avant 800 series pushes the limits of a compact loader. It has more lift height and capacity than ever before. It reaches all the way to tall mixer feeder wagons and can load a truck from one side to the far edge – no need to drive around the truck when loading. 800 series can also handle stone pallets with ease thanks to the 4190 lb capacity. Yet it is compact enough to work in places where bigger machines cannot go and can be transported on a conventional car trailer.
In addition to the standard ROPS/FOPS cab, the optional GT cab is a modern air-conditioned, vibration insulated comfort zone for the driver. A low noise level combined with excellent visibility and ergonomics guarantees a comfortable full day’s work in the cab. The cab can be equipped following the customers' needs – with A/C, Bluetooth radio, air suspension seat, etc. It is the best cab in the market - period.
Avant’s ingenious articulated design where the driver sits in the front chassis and has a perfect view on the attachment and work area means low center of gravity of the machine, which is an important factor in the stability. Also the rigid articulation joint which doesn’t swing sideways increases stability in all situations and at the same time best possible traction can be achieved thanks to the advanced 4x4 system.
All Avant loaders are equipped with an open ROPS/FOPS certified cab as standard, and also the optional enclosed cabs (L, LX, DLX, GT) comply with the ROPS/FOPS standards.
While Avant loaders are made as compact as possible, the reach and lift height do not suffer from it.
Avant's telescopic boom makes it possible to have a very compact machine with a great outreach and lift capacity. When the telescopic boom is retracted it is possible to lift heavier loads. With the boom fully extended, the reach and lift height are unparalleled.
In many cases, it is possible to load a trailer from one side thanks to the outreach of the telescopic boom and still have excellent all-round visibility.
Avant attachments have been designed to work as an equal partner on Avant loaders. The best machine-attachment combination and work efficiency can only be achieved when a good machine is fitted with attachments that are specifically designed for the machine. The dimensions, auxiliary hydraulics output and other features of Avant are in perfect balance with the attachments.
Avant loaders and attachments have been designed for year-round use which ensures that the machine is never sitting idle. The wide range of options available for the loaders - like four different cabs, extra work lights, the Opticontroltm attachment control system, etc. - together with technical solutions in the loaders make Avant as comfortable to use in the winter cold as it is on a sunny summer afternoon.
Avant's hydraulic multi-connector system for coupling the attachment’s hydraulic hoses guarantees easy and effortless connecting and detaching in any situation with a single hand movement. It can be done with the engine running and/or pressure in the attachment, also in freezing ambient temperatures. The mechanism is leak-free and cannot be connected in the wrong way.
All articulated Avant loaders are equipped with a hydrostatic drive system. There is a hydraulic drive motor on each wheel. The drive circuit is equipped with valves with which traction can be controlled in different situations. In order to avoid tyre marks on soft and sensitive surfaces when turning, the system allows the wheels on the left and right sides of the loader to roll at different speeds. This also reduces tyre wear on hard surfaces.
The valves in the drive system work like a hydraulic 4x4 diff lock and equalize the oil flow between the left and right side hydraulic motors, improving traction on slippery and uneven surfaces.
