Successful Avant test day in Ladbergen
The three companies AGRAVIS Technik BvL, AGRAVIS Technik Münsterland Ems and TecVis invited visitors to Ladbergen for a test day for multi-loaders from the Finnish manufacturer Avant. Staff from horticultural and landscaping companies and municipal maintenance depots had the opportunity to put these small multifunctional powerhouses through their paces.

For the test day, the sales staff of the three AGRAVIS Machinery companies put together an attractive programme in cooperation with Avant. After a theoretical introduction to these Finnish multi-talented machines, participants were able to test the loaders themselves. Whether loading bulk materials such as sand, simply stacking pallets or moving wood with the timber grab, visitors were able to test the versatility of these small green loaders in all situations. Even a trencher for laying drainage pipes can be attached to the Finnish multifunctional loaders. And with the right adapter, normal front-loader machines to Euro standard can also be used.
Electric motors are the future
"The future has arrived", was the organisers' message in Ladbergen. The first electric farm loaders were unveiled at EuroTier 2016 in Hanover and were on show at the test day in Ladbergen for visitors to marvel at. "It's as if this loader has been specially made for cattle and equestrian businesses, because its electric motor is very quiet and so does not put the animals under any additional stress when working in the barn," explained Markus Schulenkorf, one of the organisers. "In these businesses, the loaders are also often used for just a few minutes at a time and then switched off again immediately. Diesel engines often do not tolerate this very well, as they hardly get a chance to warm up."
"We can certainly chalk up today's test day as a success," added Schulenkorf. Many customers took up the invitation to come to Ladbergen and showed interest in the multifunctional loaders – which took a bit of getting used to at first. He is sure that the distinctive green loaders will stand out from those of other manufacturers for many horticultural and landscaping businesses, local authorities and agricultural businesses thanks to their versatility.
