Delivery of an Avant 860i to Merriman Park, Street, Somerset

One of our customers recently purchased a new Avant 860i for work in Merriman Park located in Street, Somerset.



Paul grew up in Street as a child so was a special moment when he sold a machine to be used in a park where he once played in, close to his childhood family home. This was also a special day for Tom as this was the first machine he delivered on L plates in the lorry - probably the youngest person to have delivered an 860i loader! Tom is currently doing his HGV training so was great experience for him.

Changing Lives Award

We kindly received a 'Changing Lives' award from Avant Tecno UK.

This was after all the hard work we put into adapting an Avant 760 for one of our customers. After a year of working on it, it was user friendly for those paralysed from the waist down.

If you would like to see a full overview be sure to go on our YouTube!

Avant Finland Trip

In January 2020 we were kindly invited on a dealer trip to the Avant Tecno factory in Finland. We had 2 of our customers invited along too; Mike Durston and Robert Elsby as they had ordered one of the new Avant 860 loaders at beginning of last year with us.

On this trip we were shown the new 860 in action (shortly expected to arrive to the UK) and the new attachments being released this year. We were also showed around the factory down the production line.

This was a great experience as Alice (who works in the Avant Equipment office) and Tom (who helps Paul with sales) came along too. Due to them being new to the business it was a perfect opportunity for them to meet other dealers and the team from Avant Tecno UK. It was a privilege to also meet the owners of Avant Finland; Risto and his son Jani Kakela.

Kindly we had some reps come down from Digga, Truxta, William Hackett and Avant join us.

A big thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
