BeePro Series Efficient & Versatile Mini Loader for Beekeepers
BeePro Series Outstanding efficiency and versatility
Avant BeePro mini loaders take the back breaking work out of moving beehives by loading and unloading hives quickly and efficiently. The Avant BeePro mini loader offers optimum visibility, effortless operation, and high and powerful lift capacity for beekeepers. The compact size allows it to be transported with the hives on the back of the truck for easy loading and unloading by beekeepers. It can sit horizontally on the truck with forks attached providing more room for the hives.
The telescopic boom provides excellent reach when loading and unloading high trucks. The reach allows for loading across the truck from one side and enables high stacking of pallets. The tight-turning articulated chassis on this small articulated loader allows moving of hives over a variety of terrains while limiting damage to established and sensitive surfaces as it turns or carries a load.
The Avant flail mower attachment is ideal to prepare the ground for the beehives.
With over 200 attachments and optional cab fittings such as the fully enclosed cabin with A/C or heating, an Avant mini loader will help you do more with very little physical effort.

the mini loader that will become your best friend.
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 mini loaders are equipped with an open ROPS/FOPS certified cab as standard, and have optional enclosed cabs (L, LX, DLX, GT) available that comply with the ROPS/FOPS standards.
While Avant mini loaders are made as compact as possible, the reach and lift height does not suffer.
The Avant mini loader’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 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 mini 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 the Avant mini loader 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.
All articulated Avant mini loaders are equipped with a hydrostatic drive system. There is a hydraulic drive motor on each wheel. The drive circuit is equipped with valves with which traction can be controlled in different situations. In order to avoid tyre marks on soft and sensitive surfaces when turning, the system allows the wheels on the left and right sides of the loader to roll at different speeds. This also reduces tyre wear on hard surfaces.
The valves in the drive system work like a hydraulic 4×4 diff lock and equalize the oil flow between the left and right side hydraulic motors, improving traction on slippery and uneven surfaces.
