Avant Tecno USA recently introduced its first fully electric loader, the Avant e5, to the North American market. This battery powered machine is in the same size class as the Avant 500 series, offering zero emissions, minimal noise and low operating costs.
The launch of Avant’s e5 machines took place at the 2020 CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas.
The e5 is especially well suited for indoor job and demolition sites where little to no ventilation is possible. Its low noise level enables work in noise-restricted areas or where minimum interference caused by worksite noise is a benefit.

”We’re thrilled to be introducing and showcasing our e-series machines to the United States,” said Jukka Kytomaki, president of Avant Tecno USA. ”As with all Avant loaders, these machines focus on efficiency, ease of use, safety, versatility and ergonomics. In the case of indoor jobsites, the e5 is going to be a game-changer in the industry.”
The e5 is equipped with an AGM battery (Absorbent Glass Mat) which is maintenance free and has a capacity of 13.6 kW. The Avant e5 has a 7.9 gal/min auxiliary hydraulic flow, which allows working with various Avant attachments.
