Avant Tecno introduced two new loader models in its 600 series – the Avant 645i and 650i, which are the most powerful loaders of their size class.
The dimensions and lifting power of the new machines are in the same range with the previous 600 series models, but the engine is now new. The power of the 700 series is packed in these two models. Kubota’s 44-hp. diesel engine provides plenty of power and torque for work that is speed intensive and/or requires high pulling force.
Avant is the first manufacturer to bring such a powerful machine to the market in this size class.
The Avant 645i and 650i models are the most compact over-26-hp. Stage V / Tier 4 Final-compliant loaders in the market.
The single-speed 645i and the two-speed 650i are equipped with a Kubota V1505CRT diesel engine. The 4-cylinder 1498 cm3 turbocharged common rail engine has a power output of 33 kW / 44 hp. The oxidation catalyst and particulate filter handle the exhaust aftertreatment, and no additives (AdBlue) are required.
The maximum oil flow of the auxiliary hydraulics is 19.8 gal/min. The new loaders can run almost any of Avant’s hydraulically driven attachments.
Hydrostatic transmission with a hydraulic drive motor on each wheel is a familiar feature of Avant compact loaders. The Avant 645i is equipped with 1-speed motors (max. driving speed 8 mph), while the 650i has 2-speed motors and a max. driving speed of 15.5 mph.
Due to their low weight (3571.5/3593.5 lbs), the loaders are easy to transport and gentle on delicate surfaces.
The new loaders have a certified ROPS/FOPS open cab as standard. Both the L-cab and Avant’s latest GT cab, which is completely unique in this size class, are available as an option. The noise and vibration isolation of the spacious and modern GT cab is excellent, with efficient heating and ventilation, excellent ergonomics, and large windows providing superior comfort for the operator. Air conditioning is also available in the GT cab.
Characteristic of the Avant, the telescopic lifting boom comes as standard for the new models. The length of the telescope is 23.6 in, and the maximum lifting height is 111.8 in to the hinge pin of the attachment coupling plate. The hydraulic boom self-levelling system automatically keeps the load horizontal when the boom is lifted and lowered.
The 600 series features the Avant specific quick attachment plate for attachments; hydraulic quick locking of the locking pins is also available. The hydraulic hoses of the attachment are conveniently connected to a multi connector as in all Avant loaders.
Avant’s range of attachments is the largest in the world, with more than 200 attachments available for the 600 series.
