Updated: Apr 6, 2020

Highway Equipment & Supply Co. is now an authorized Avant dealer for articulating compact loaders.

"Breaking into a new market is always a great opportunity for Highway and our customers," said Vice President Ryan Flood. "Offering Avant's articulating compact loaders allows us to meet more of our customers' needs."

Q: What can I use an articulating compact loader for?

A: Avant's compact loaders provide greater maneuverability and versatility than skid steers and track loaders due to their ability to articulate, a unique innovation that few competitors can offer.

Applications include:

  • Construction

  • Demolition

  • Landscaping

  • Material-moving

  • Forestry

  • Groundcare

  • Farming

  • Snow-clearing

The compact and lightweight style of Avant machines makes them ideal to work inside buildings. Lift your articulating compact loader onto the roof, take it down the freight elevator to the basement, or put it to work in tight spaces that usually require manual labor.

Avant articulating compact loaders come in five different sizes, from the 200 Series to the 700 Series, so you can choose a size to match your jobs. There is also a fully-electric E-Series option.

Q: What can I attach to my articulating compact loader?

A: Avant manufactures more than 190 different attachments so you can do more with your articulating compact loader.

The use of modern hydraulics makes Avant loaders strong and durable while remaining light and agile. The articulating compact loader's unique attachment coupler and hydraulic mini-connector allows you to change your attachments quickly.
