Avant

Carriers For

Block Paving

Established in 1987, family owned

Tecni:Block

has recently purchased its

ninth Avant compact tool carrier.

Commenting on its choice of ma-

chine,

Tecni:Block’

s Managing Director,

Phil Annable said:

“I really didn’t think our first Avant would

last five minutes on our type of work, but

I have to say they have since proved to be

absolutely brilliant with one of our 635

models now over eight years old and still

going strong.”

The key feature is their ability to lift 1 tonne

plus packs of blocks and place them into position

prior to laying. In addition, the pallet forks can be

quickly changed to a bucket for sand handling and

levelling or a vacuum lifter when working on obsta-

cles such as steps or even a breaker when required.

“Our latest 750 model has a little more lift

capacity which enables it to handle larger

blocks with ease and also benefits from

2-speed drive which is useful when we have

to carry packs some distance on large sites.”

With several gangs working at different lo-

cations throughout the Midlands,

Tecni:Block

also

likes the fact the Avants can be safely towed to site

behind a typical 4x4 vehicle.

The 750 model, delivered by local dealer Robert

Lee (Plant), is powered by a Kubota 4-cylinder diesel

engine developing 36 kW (49 hp), driving through a

2-speed hydrostatic transmission which provides a

top speed of 25 km/h. The all-wheel drive, articu-

lated machine is just 1050 mm wide and can handle

loads of up to 1.4 tonne.
