As you can see this attachment can be used for different purposes- in first video there was clamshell bucket attached to that, now it's changed to log grappler- as hydraulic pipes to the rotor are attached using quick release connections 3/8" then I can switch from bucket to grappler in less than minute. In this video you might notice that rotor is responding too quickly to commands therefore now I have added flow decrease valves on pipes which are turning rotor itself- it just reduces the turning speed but doesn't have any impact on its power as hydraulic pressure stay's the same. I have plan to check whether it is able to drive an auger (like 120-150mm)as well, just need to get it somewhere.
Avant 528 with clamshell bucket
This is the one of few upgrades which I have made so far for my Avant 528
but it is the first one which I decided to share with you. In general Avant
is good tool but at the same time manufacturer can't guess any customer
needs upfront, and this is exactly the case. I have quite a long ditch
which time by time requires to be cleaned. As mainly it has sludge there
then it is quite impossible to do it with spade therefore I decided to make
additional tool for my Avant in order to deal with that- and here is
result. Mechanical part was an easy one- bought 60L clamshell bucket,
welded main frame for that (1500mm long 80X80 steel tube, with its wall
thickness of 8mm). The problems started with hydraulic- all Avants (at
least 500 series) have just one pair of hydraulic outlet which doesn't
allow to operate bucket and it's rotor at the same time therefore I did its
upgrade to two pairs of outlets using solenoid valves. The second thing
which isn't available for 500 series Avant is option to control its
auxiliary outlets with joystick (despite such option is available for 600
series and above)- therefore I bought joystick itself (called joystick 8
functions)from my Avant dealer and using appropriate relays created control
unit for that- was quite a difficult task but result is excellent and I'm
really proud of that.

Avant 528 with floating attachment hook-up
And here you can see few of latest upgrades I did for my Avant- double
wheels- significantly reduce the pressure to the soil, especially if used
on lawn (like with lawn mower once per week), also traction and stability
is increased significantly, floating attachment hook-up- Avant doesn't have
factory made floating option (the one it has is not really "floating")-
quite significant tool if you need to work with attachments which require
precise follow-on terrene like lawn mower or dozer blade. Also dozer blade
itself was improved with additional solid support legs (not available as
option for this model, available for one with width of 2000) and I
increased its height (doubled it) as without that it was too low and not
suitable for snow removal.
Concrete mixing bucket, Avant 300-700 Series attachment
Concrete mixing bucket is a handy tool when you need to make concrete
without electricity or when you need to transport or lift the concrete to a
difficult place. Bucket can be filled directly from the ground like a
normal bucket and mixing is performed hydraulically.
Ejecting can be done by just opening the ejecting hatch or using the chute
to guide the concrete.
• Easy and efficient way to make concrete in places where electricity is
• The mixed concrete is easy and effortless to transport and pour into
• Gravel can be filled into the bucket directly from the ground
• Concrete can be ejected up to 2 m height. With the chute ejecting is
easy and accurate.
Digger 140 2, Avant 300-700 Series attachment
Avant Digger 140 is an efficient solution for small digging operations
where maximum digging depth of 1400 mm is enough. It mounts directly on the
quick attach plate of the loader and is operated by the auxiliary
hydraulics control lever. Dumping to the side is done by turning the
steering wheel of an articulated Avant.
• Very easy and quick to mount on the loader
• Easy to handle and transport
• High loading height
• Soil can be transported in the bucket

Screening bucket, Avant 300-700 Series attachment
Avant screening bucket separates different sized soil materials effectively
with the help of it's unique construction. The purpose of the screening
bucket is indeed to separate the larger and smaller particles from the soil
and not crush the larger material into smaller particles.
Top soil making for landscaping, nurseries and whole sale is the principal
use for Avant screening buckets. Advantage of screening bucket is, that no
sharp particles are crushed into the material, making it safe to use in
garden and park areas.
Avant screening buckets also make it possible to alter the top soil
composition for different uses. You are able to mix peat, sand, silt, clay
or moraine into the top soil to make the soil composition right for
Back fillings (padding) of pipes, cables and tanks are also an ideal place
to use a screening bucket. You are able to screen the fine material on top
of the pipes or tanks to protect them and there is no need to transport
finer material to the work sites separately.
In the demolition and construction site you can separate different size of
construction and demolition waste making it easier to recycle them.
