AVANT - Model 500 Series - Articulated Loader
Avant’s long standing experience and strong emphasis on product development is clearly visible in the 500 series articulated loader. The operating characteristics, power and user friendliness of the 500 will meet all your working requirements. We have taken operators needs into account and have improved and developed: Work efficiency and maneuverability, Versatility, Ergonomics, Safety.
- Load sensor
- Hydrostatic transmission
The first thing in the safe design of Avant is its basic construction. The operator has an excellent , unresticted 360° field of vision.
Positioned in the front part of the machine, the operator’s seat is as close to the attachment as it can safely be. That is why Avant driver can always see what he is doing and where he is going.
The load sensor also comes as standard in Avant 500 series. Audible warning signals are heard if the rear wheels are about to lift off of the ground, warning the operator immediately should he, for example, inadvertently move the load away from the machine with the telescopic boom.
Working with the machine is very easy and logical. Cockpit ergonomics is well thought out and all controls are well positioned.
Hydrostatic transmission quarantees smooth and exact driving. The machine can be controlled very exactly both on low and higher drive speeds.
- ROPS safety frame and FOPS canopy
- Seat belt
Avant 500 series comes as standard with a tested and certified ROPS safety frame, which is a four post structure which really protects the operator, for instance when driving backward and accidentally hitting an obstacle. The ROPS frame and the optional FOPS canopy are tested and certified and comply with the relevant ISO standards. The two-point seat belt is also a standard feature.
- Oil flow 39 l/min (Avant 528), 31 l/min (Avant 520)
- Pressure 200 bar / 2900 PSI
- Hydraulic oil cooler standard
Avant 500 series, like all Avant models, is equipped with a double acting auxiliary hydraulics outlet in the front, which is very powerful for a machine of this size. This makes the Avant a real multi purpose machine and allows a superior attachment range with over 100 different attachments.
Hydraulic oil cooler comes as standard. It is a very important equipment for conditions where the attachments are being operated continuously for a long period of time in high ambient temperatures – like the trencher, wood chipper, rotary hoe or lawn mower.
Lifting capabilities of a telescopic loader
- Modern off center boom construction
- Lift capacity of about 1 ton
- Max. lift height 2800 mm
- Telescopic boom as option
- Boom self levelling as option
- Quick attach system for attachments
When equipped with telescopic boom, one has good reason to say that Avant 500 series is actually an articulated telescopic handler. Lift height, lift capacity, outreach and load control are superior in their class.
Thanks to the off center boom construction, the Avant driver has an excellent field of vision to the working area and to the attachment. He doesn’t have to reach out to see. The Avant driver always sees what he is doing and where he is going.
Quick attach system makes changing of attachments very fast and easy. For example, taking off a bucket and attaching a backhoe or lawn mower happens in just a couple of minutes. The optional boom self levelling facilitates load handling, especially handling of pallets a lot.
- Hydraulic power steering
- Turning radius of 995 mm / 2470 mm
Avant is equipped with a precise and light to operate hydraulic power steering. Thanks to this the machine is easy to control in all situations.
The outside turning radius of Avant 500 series is only 2,47 m which means they can work in tight situations as well.
