Avant UK heads to this year’s Plantworx with a host of new innovations and developments to showcase over the three days.
The team will be on hand to assist with both practical demonstrations and a show stand so there will be plenty of opportunities to find out more about the new additions to the extensive range of compact loaders.
Avant has recently had plenty to celebrate after being awarded a highly commended in the Plantworx Awards 2017 – for Innovation in the Environment section.
Said Avant UK Managing Director, Raimo Ala-Korpi: “We were delighted to receive the award from the Plantworx team. It recognises the commitment we have to the environment and ensuring our compact loaders are as environmentally friendly as they can be.”
For the first-time in the UK visitors to the stand will be able to learn more about the new Optidrive system which is available on the 700-series loaders. In the new system the amount of hydraulic hoses and fittings has been radically reduced and optimized, where the name Optidrive derives from as well.
The principal benefits of the new Optidrive are:
– 10% better performance
– 60% less hydraulic connections
– 20% less hoses
– Parking brake in rear wheels
– Less heat build up
– Less engine vibrations in Avant 700 series
– Better hydraulic connector system
– Better servicing
The Optidrive reduces the power loss in the system by up to 1.5 kW, which is roughly 10% of the total power used in the drive circuit. This means lower fuel consumption, less heat in the hydraulic system and more power for the actual job.
The demonstration arena will include the Avant Electric model, machines with hand drive controls system in medium and large loaders and a fleet of attachments showing the variety of systems available today.
On the show stand there will be a full range of models from the 200 to 700, again all equipped with the many attachments Avant provide.
The stand will provide a large open space to highlight the innovative Avant loaders and accessories with all the models present, ranging in size and functionality, enabling show visitors to find the right model for the job.
This range of tool carriers is extremely user-friendly, making them ideal for the construction market with a choice of some 200 attachments for outstanding on-site adaptability.
