Eagle Power & Equipment announced that it is now offering the Avant loader line.

The Avant lineup and attachments will be available at all of its locations: Eagle Power & Equipment in Montgomeryville, Pa.; West Chester, Pa.; and New Castle, Del., and at Eagle Power Turf & Tractor in Doylestown, Pa.

Matt McDonald, president of Eagle Power & Equipment, said the Avant line fills an important niche in the company's total product offerings.

"We've been following this Avant product for some time and feel it could really fill a niche in the Eagle Power line up. a small, rugged articulated wheel loader that commands a real presence in the tree industry in addition to interior demolition and general landscape use. One of the many unique features that the Avant loader offers is little to no turf damage. Avant offers approximately 200 quick change attachments, most manufactured in house that make this not just a loader, but a multi use prime mover.

In addition to tree service and landscaping applications, Avant loaders are suited for artificial turf and sports facility and maintenance, farming, construction and demolition, sidewalk snow removal and municipality and park projects.

McDonald added that one of his company's current customers already owns several Avant loaders and will now be looking to add additional Avant units to his fleet with Eagle Power & Equipment.

"He performs unique interior demolition," McDonald said. "So, he likes the [compact] size of Avant loaders. He takes them into all the office buildings or old stores and has a couple attachments, one of which helps him tear down the dropped ceilings. He then uses another Avant to pop the tile up. It's a tile scraper so he can clear the floors out. They are compact enough so that he can take them into a freight elevator in a larger building, such as if he needs to do work on the 15th floor or whatever."

Avant has provided Eagle Power technicians and the sales team with training to support the line in addition to stocking all Eagle Power locations with fast moving parts.

Avant's loaders range from its largest and most powerful 700 Series loaders, which provide a 3,810-lb. lifting capacity and a 122-in. lift height to its smallest 200 Series loaders, which features a 1,210-lb. lifting capacity and a 55.1-in. lift height. Avant also manufactures a fully electric e Series, which provides a 1,984-lb. lifting capacity and a 109.8-in. lift height. Other series include 600, 500, 400 and 200.

Eagle Power & Equipment also carries Case construction equipment; Kubota; Eager Beaver trailers; Trail King trailers; Allied hammers, compressor and light towers; Paladin attachments; Toro Dingo and more. CEG
