Avant Tecno (UK), of Thetford in Norfolk, is celebrating 20 years of trading in the UK by launching the 760i compact tool carrier, the company’s largest and most powerful machine to date.
Since arriving in the UK in 1994, the Finnish company has sold nearly 5,000 of its compact tool carriers, and the new 760i model offers outstanding performance for its size. It is able to work hard even with its engine set at low rpm because maximum torque is on tap from almost the idle position.
Measuring just 3,080mm long and 1,400mm wide, it’s powered by a new Kohler KDI engine, that develops 57hp at 2,200rpm and meets the latest Stage IV emission regulations. Compared with Avant’s previous range-topping 750, the new model offers 20% more engine power, 40% more torque and 20% lower fuel consumption.
The 760i’s hydrostatic transmission offers a maximum travel speed of 30km/hr and the machine is highly stable, even at speed, thanks to larger and wider tyres that also help to minimise damage to delicate surfaces. In addition, its auxiliary hydraulic system is able to supply an impressive oil flow of up to 80 lit/min for powering a huge range of available attachments.
