For the fifth consecutive year, Avant Tecno USA will return to GIE+EXPO next month with an expanded line of machines and attachments, more infrastructure and a broader dealer network – not to mention larger indoor and outdoor exhibit spaces.
The 2016 show begins with Dealer Day on Oct. 19 and opens to all industry participants Oct. 20-21 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. The show will once again be co-located with Hardscape North America (HNA). You can find more information and register here.
Avant will introduce its new 200 Series line and the 755i at this year’s exposition, in addition to showcasing its 400, 500, 600 and 700 Series models, which now have more than 150 attachments available.
The new 200 Series and the 755i and 760i models are powered by Kohler Engines.
While targeting landscape professionals, grounds care and property maintenance operations with the 200 Series multi-purpose loaders, Avant will also market the machine to homeowners.
The new series consists of three models. The Avant 220 is equipped with a 20-horsepower gasoline engine and it’s this machine the company will pitch to homeowners. For its commercial customers, Avant says the 225 features a new 25-horsepower Kohler EFI gasoline engine and auxiliary hydraulics oil flow as high as 11.1 gal/min. The Avant 225 LPG is equipped with a low emission LPG engine and is suited for multiple indoor operations such as refurbishing and demolition jobs where low machine weight is essential.
The 755i and 760i machines are the greenest in the Avant line. Both machines are engineered to deliver maximum power and torque with outstanding fuel economy and low emissions. The Kohler KDI engines meet Tier 4 Final emissions regulations without the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) or the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The Avant 755i and 760i are turbocharged with 57-horsepower engines.
The Avant 755i offers single speed drive at a maximum of 10.5 miles per hour. Avant 760i offers dual speed drive, with a maximum speed of 19 miles per hour.
The Kohler EFI gas engines powering the 200 Series loaders use Kohler’s closed-loop system. An oxygen sensor in the engine’s muffler continuously monitors the air/fuel mixture. If the mixture strays from the ideal level, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system.
