- Rigid articulation joint
- Load sensor
- Hydrostatic transmission
The first thing in the safe design of Avant is its basic construction. The operator has an excellent, unrestricted 3600 field of vision. Positioned in the front part of the machine, the operator’s seat is as close to the attachment as it can safely be. That is why Avant driver can always see what he is doing and where he is going
Rigid articulation joint
Rigid articulation joint has been the trademark of Avant for a long time. This design means that the articulation joint doesn’t swing sideways – it only turns in the direction of steering. This gives numerous advantages:
- Tipping load is much bigger when the chassis of the machine is in articulation
- Rear chassis of the machine is in all situations a counterweight to the load on the front part of the machine
- Drive speed of the machine can be higher without needing to make the machine too wide, because the machine is more stable when turning.
The load sensor also comes as standard in Avant 700 series. Audible warning signals are heard if the rear wheels are about to lift off of the ground, warning the operator immediately should he, for example, inadvertently move the load away from the machine with the telescopic boom.
Working with the machine is very easy and logical. Cockpit ergonomics is well thought out and all controls are well positioned.
Hydrostatic transmission guarantees smooth and exact driving. The machine can be controlled very exactly both on low and higher drive speeds.
- ROPS safety frame and FOPS canopy
- Seat belt
Avant 700 series comes as standard with a tested and certified ROPS safety frame, which is a four post structure which really protects the operator, for instance when driving backward and accidentally hitting an obstacle. The ROPS frame and the optional FOPS canopy are tested and certified and comply with the relevant ISO standards. The two-point seat belt is standard feature as well.
- Oil flow as high as 70 l/min
- Pressure 240 bar / 3480 PSI
- Hydraulic oil cooler standard
Avant 700 series, like all Avant models, is equipped with a double acting auxiliary hydraulics outlet in the front, which is very powerful for a machine of this size. This makes the Avant a real multi purpose machine and allows a superior attachment range with over 100 different attachments.
Hydraulic oil cooler comes as standard. It is a very important equipment for conditions where the attachments are being operated continuously for a long period of time in high ambient temperatures – like the trencher, wood chipper, rotary hoe or lawn mower. The optional rear auxiliary hydraulics outlet can be single or double acting.
Lifting capabilities of a telescopic loader
- Modern off centre boom construction
- Lift capacity 1,35 ton
- Max. lift height 3010 mm
- Telescopic boom as option
- Boom self levelling as option
- Quick attach system for attachments
When equipped with telescopic boom, one has good reason to say that Avant 700 series is actually an articulated telescopic handler. Lift height, lift capacity, outreach and load control are superior in their class. In addition, the optional 8 function joystick further facilitates boom and auxiliary hydraulics control.
Thanks to the off centre boom construction Avant driver has an excellent field of vision to the working area and to the attachment. He doesn’t have to reach out to see. Avant driver always sees what he is doing and where he is going. The off centre boom makes working with practically all attachments more efficient, but especially hydraulic breaker, auger, trencher and stump buster benefit from this design.
Avant quick attach system
Quick attach system makes changing of attachments very fast and easy. For example, taking off a bucket and attaching a backhoe or lawn mower happens in just a couple of minutes.
Boom self levelling
The optional boom self levelling facilitates load handling, especially handling of pallets a lot. It keeps the attachment and load (for example pallet fork, bucket) automatically level in all positions of the boom. Self levelling also increases lifting force of the boom.
- Four wheel drive
- Changing of driving direction with drive pedals
- Two drive speed areas on model Avant 750
- High pulling force and precise drive control
Avant 700 series is equipped with hydrostatic transmission, which for many years has worked well also on smaller Avants. The new feature on model Avant 750 is two speed areas. This gives both high drive speed and high pulling force for the same machine – this has not been possible earlier.
One familiar Avant feature has always been drive control and changing of driving direction with two pedals. This enables precise drive control in all situations, regardless of engine revs. This is very important when working with attachments which require a lot of horsepower and auxiliary hydraulics oil flow but a slow drive speed. Thanks to the two drive pedals changing of driving direction is also very fast and easy.
Correct basic construction
- Attachments can be mounted both on the front and in the rear
- Rigid articulation joint
Rigid articulation joint has always been the trademark of Avant. Thanks to this rigid design tipping load is much higher when the chassis of the machine is in articulation.
This also improves stability and performance of the machine considerably. Avant is therefore well known as a very stable machine.
Avant is designed so that attachments can be mounted either on the front of the machine on the quick attach plate, or on the rear. Most of the attachments are mounted on the front, directly on the field of vision of the operator.
Some attachments can also be mounted on the rear of the machine thanks to the optional rear auxiliary hydraulics, rear lifting device and trailer coupling.
