Avant Tecno introduced its new 800 series of compact loaders.

The series will include two models to start, including:

  • Avant 860i with a Kohler KDI 1903 TCR 57-hp common rail turbocharged diesel engine, EU Stage V and U.S. Tier 4 final compliant; and
  • Avant 850 with a Kubota V2403 49-hp diesel engine, destined for markets outside the scope of EU Stage V and U.S. Tier 4 final emission standards.

The compact loaders have a 4,189-pound (1,900-kilogram) lift capacity and a 3.8-yard (3.5-meter) lift height. Hydrostatic transmission with a hydraulic drive motor on each wheel, together with two drive speed areas, is a familiar feature of Avant compact loaders, said the company. Maximum drive speed of the 800 series is 18.6 mph (30 km/h), and auxiliary hydraulics oil flow for attachments is as high as 80 l/min.

A telescopic loader boom is a standard feature on the 800 series as well. The boom extends and retracts hydraulically 2.7 feet (825 millimeters) and gives a maximum lift height of 3.8 yards (3.5 meters) to the hinge pin. According to the company, this enables loading on trucks with high sides and unloading from high levels. The hydraulic self-leveling system keeps the load automatically level when lifting and lowering the boom. Avant’s 200-plus attachments are available for the 800 series.

The Avant 800 series has a certified ROPS/FOPS open cab as a standard option, and an enclosed heated cab is an available option. This DLX cab mounts on the chassis of the loader with antivibration mounts. The cab can be equipped with air conditioning as well.

Projected production for Avant’s 800 series is fall 2019.
