As a past purchaser of Avant machines, we were familiar with the models and service provided by Avant. While we researched other machines on the market we were drawn back to the existing relationship we have with Avant and the outstanding features of Model 745. Every Avant mini loader we’ve purchased has proved to be quick, efficient, easy to use as well as safe and reliable. The 745 has provided us with significant productivity improvements due to the size and manoeuvrability especially with weight.
