This was a particular request from the rental yards. The rear guard mounts onto mounting brackets on the back of the loader, it has tie down brackets integrated, is bolt mounted, and can be easily retrofitted and removed as necessary.

The new Avant Screening Bucket offers a larger volume for customers who need to handle and manufacture different types of soil.  The plastic sieving paddles are very durable and can handle several types of material with ease. A major advantage is that is separates weeds from soil.

Avant USA Moves With CXC Skiing


img_2907Elk Grove Village, Illinois, May 27, 2014 — Avant Tecno USA is thrilled to announce its partnership with the Central Cross Country Ski Association (“CXC Skiing”) headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin.

Avant has been a supporter and sponsor of CXC Skiing over the past two years and, will again, provide its loader equipment to complete the pre-season trail work at Telemark for events this winter season and for the 2016 USSA Nordic Junior National Championships. Avant’s compact loaders perform a critical role from basic pre-season ski trail maintenance and snow removal to moving natural and man-made snow onto the ski trail to creating top of the line conditions for everyone to safely enjoy cross-country skiing.

“AVANT played a huge role in trail and stadium preparation for the 2013 IPC Nordic Skiing World Cup. AVANT is extremely easy to operate, compact and maneuverable. In a challenging weather conditions in a low-snow December, we used AVANT to move snow on the trail around biathlon range and event was challenged again by weather with 2 inches of rain in mid-January two days before the first race. AVANT did an outstanding job for moving man-made snow on the washed out sections of the trail and we were able to pull out all events as they were planned.”
– commented Yuriy Gusev, CXC Executive Director and 2013 IPC World Cup Chief of Competition.

Avant Tecno USA offers a new breed of compact articulated loaders and attachments to the market. Its technology, benefits and solutions are unmatched in the USA. Avant loaders can be equipped with more than 100 attachments, making one machine able to do the work of several. The use of modern hydraulics make Avant loaders strong and durable, while remaining light and agile.

AVANT Test Drive at GIE

We were excited to see this video from our friends at GreenIndustryPros.com that features a test drive of the AVANT units at GIE a couple months ago. We especially love James from New Jersey and his enthusiasm for our machines. Take a look:


Avant Loaders and Attachments Work All Year Long

Avant Tecno USA offers more than just powerful, articulated compact loaders. There are also more than 100 attachments that make Avant machines “All-In-One, All Year Long.” No matter the industry or application, whether it’s landscaping, light construction, nurseries, grounds maintenance, municipalities, etc. 

Avant new snowblowerOne of our exciting new products is the 2-stage Snow Blower, available in 48” (fits the 400 and 500 series, and the 630 unit) or 60” (fits the 635, 640, 745, and 750 units). There are several other snow removal attachments available, including blades, buckets, and snowplows.

After the snow has melted, Avant keeps working. With dozens of landscaping and ground care attachments available, people in the green industry have plenty of options to choose from with the light and agile Avant. When paired with the powerful Avant units, landscaping is made easier as the Avant fits into tight spaces and has less damage to the grass than its competitors.



Avant has also released new Skid-steer Attachment Mounting Adaptor and Quick Connector Conversion Kit that allow people to use their existing skid-steer attachments with Avant loaders.



Our most recent new product release is the newly developed Avant Pallet Fork, which is compatible with the 400, 500, 600, and 700 series of Avant loaders. It’s available in multiple lengths: 30″, 36″, 42″, 45″, and 48″. It offers unique features, including a lightweight, open design providing good visibility, and adjustable fork spacing. It has a quick attach mount to the Avant units and bolt on the back guard.
