Avant loader handles London 2012 Olympic Mascots

Avant loader handles London 2012 Olympic Mascots

A top-of-the-range Avant 750 compact loader complete with air conditioned cab proved to be the perfect machine for placing and retrieving over 100 Olympic mascots which, for eight weeks, were located across London with 20 adjacent to many of the capital’s iconic locations such as Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament.

The contract, awarded by the Mayor of London’s office, was won by Great Newra Transport & Recycling of Newport in Gwent which specialises in the handling of unusual objects.

According to company director Eddie Ford: “We have often used skid steer loaders in the past but, for the Olympic contract, it was important not to leave any tyre marks and with its articulated chassis, the Avant proved to be an ideal solution.

The machine, hired from Stuart Smith Plant Hire, also based in Newport, was easily capable of handling the fibreglass mascots, despite them being firmly mounted onto concrete bases with weights ranging from 500 to 1,200 kg.
