Avant articulated loaders are true workhorses for small spaces. Avant loaders can lift almost their own weight and with an articulation joint, they turn directly into even the smallest of job sites. With an Avant articulated loader, you do not need any extra ground protection and you can save money in yearly maintenance costs compared to a traditional skid steer. The compact size makes Avant loaders excellent for tight spaces including fenced-in yards, sidewalks, and warehouses. Over 200 attachments enable maximum usage on the working site – one machine for all jobs!
"I know what I like in the machine I’m operating. I want to feel balanced, I want to feel small and I want to feel powerful, and the Avant puts all of that together, adding comfortability into the equation. It is so brilliantly designed – somebody really got it right.” – Jason, Pleasant Hill Property Services, Maine

The main flagship of the range, the Avant 860i loader pushes the limits of a compact loader. It has more lift height and capacity than ever before. The loader reaches all the way to tall mixer feeder wagons and can load a truck from one side to the far edge – there’s no need to drive around the truck when loading. The Avant 860i can also handle stone pallets with ease thanks to its 4,190 lb capacity. Even still, it is compact enough to work in places where bigger machines cannot go and can be transported on a conventional car trailer.
Professionals love the versatility of the Avant as it gives them the ability to perform multiple tasks year-round with one machine. Furthermore, Avant machines leave minimal ground disturbance to the most delicate surfaces..
The Avant is compact enough to safely maneuver around tight job sites and in small backyards – it can also be easily transported with ½ ton pick-up & trailer.
Articulated Avant loaders are very easy and safe to operate thanks to basic controls and a unique hydraulic connection system. The ROPS safety frame with FOPS canopy, side entry to the operator station, and low center of gravity make it a safe solution on every job site.
The offset telescopic boom allows for greater lifting height and outreach than a conventional or skid-steer loader.
The Avant is manufactured in Finland to the highest standard using only high-quality materials. Avant uses Kubota diesel engines backed by a 24-month warranty.
The articulated chassis allows the operator to drive over sensitive surfaces without marking them, including lawns.
A rigid articulation joint means you can safely negotiate demanding terrain.
Ideally positioned controls and suspension seat beat standing on a loader any day.
With an extensive product range, encompassing 14 models and over 200 attachments, your needs are covered.
The Avant provides 360 degree visibility with clear sightlines from the cockpit.
“We needed a unit that’s more capable than our compact tractor, with versatility to tackle hundreds of different jobs all without having to buy a different piece of equipment. Protecting customers’ sensitive turf in tight areas is also a make-or-break issue for us, which immediately takes our skid loader out of the picture. The Avant 528 with 150 Mini Digger far exceeded our expectations!” – Chris, Budget Lawn Care & Snow Removal, Saskatoon, Canada
“We love the Avant 635, particularly for its ability to leave minimal ground disturbance on delicate lawns and surfaces. Just the savings and cost of mats and labor alone makes the Avant worth its weight in gold!
