Avant attachments have been specifically designed to work with Avant mini 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 an Avant mini loader are in perfect balance with the Avant 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.


Telescopic boom

While Avant mini 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’s ingenious articulated loader design, where the driver sits in the front chassis and has a perfect view on the attachment and work area, means the machine has a low center of gravity, which is important for stability. The rigid articulation joint, which doesn’t swing sideways, increases the stability in all situations and at the same time best possible traction can be achieved thanks to the advanced 4×4 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.



With over 200 attachments, an Avant is a loader with the flexibility to perform all kinds of work. Changing the attachment is very fast and simple thanks to the Avant quick attach system and hydraulic multi-connector. This makes the machine very versatile: you can perform all kinds of work just by changing the attachment.

The uncomplicated and strong construction along with high-quality components means easy maintenance. The use of renowned components also helps to reduce maintenance costs.
