Control of loader boom, auxiliary hydraulics and other functions

Most of the functions of the loader are controlled at the control panel on the right side of the operator: Boom and bucket

movements, auxiliary hydraulics (attachments), engine revs etc. , depending on loader model. Following pictures show the

different functions:

Attachment control switch pack

• Optional extra with which electric

functions of the attachment are


• Consists of 3 pcs control switches, wiring

and a 7-pole socket which mounts on

the auxiliary hydraulics multi connector. The corresponding

socket of the attachment electric wire

is mounted on the attachment multi

connector. This way both the electric

wire and the hydraulic hoses of the

attachments are connected at the same

time with the multi connector.

• Read the operator’s manual of the

attachment to see how the switches

are used with each attachment.

Control lever of boom and bucket

• Pull backward to lift the boom

• Push forward to lower the boom

• Push left to raise the tip of the bucket (filling)

• Push right to lower the tip of the bucket (emptying)

Hand throttle lever

• Push forward to increase engine revs

• Pull backward to reduce engine revs

Control lever of auxiliary hydraulics

(hydraulically operated attachments)

• Push right carefully to test the operating direction of

the attachment

• For continuous operation of rotating atatchments,

push right & forward to locking position

• Pull left to operate the attachment in reversed


• When using the electric joystick, this lever will

also move. Either way can be used to control the

attachment as needed.

Control lever of telescopic boom

• Push right to extend the boom

• Pull left to retract the boom

Seat heater

The suspension seat is equipped

with an electric seat heater. Seat

heater switch  and indicator

are located on the dashboard.

Boom floating

The floating system releases the lift cylinder, so that the

boom floats upwards from the position where it is when

boom floating is switched on, allowing the attachment to

follow the contours of the terrain.

1. Lower the boom down

2. Switch on the floating with

 rocker switch no.

3. Boom floating indicator

 on the dashboard lights up

When boom floating is being used, it is

possible that air gets in the hydraulic system.

This can lead to inaccurate boom movements

and the boom can give in. Therefore the

boom and attachment coupling plate should

always be moved to extreme end positions

after switching off boom floating. Use boom

floating only when necessary.


The loader is equipped, as an

option with the 6 function joystick,

where the operation of auxiliary

hydraulics and telescopic boom is


1. Auxiliary hydraulics

• push the buttons to engage

and disengage auxiliary


Engine block heater 

The loader can be equipped, as an option, with an engine

block heater. Engine block heater outlet (220V-240V) is on

the right side in the rear of the machine.


Controls in the footwell

1. Drive pedal, left: drive backward

2. Drive pedal, right: drive forward

3. Parking/emergency brake handle

• locking: pull the handle and turn down into

 locking position

• releasing: turn up and let the handle go down

Parking brake locks mechanically - springloaded pins go into the holes of the parking brake drum on the front wheels.

Make sure that the brake locks properly

by driving a bit forward or backward.

Suspension seat

The suspension seat is equipped with seat belt, arm rests

and heater and has the following adjustments:

1. Suspension adjustment

• by turning the knob counterclockwise suspension

gets harder, by turning it clockwise the suspension

gets softer

2. Angle of the back rest

• the angle of the back rest can be adjusted by

turning the knob

3. Seat position

• the distance of the seat from the steering wheel can

be adjusted with the lever which is located under

the front edge of the seat

4. Arm rest angle adjustment

• The angle of the arm rest can be adjusted by turning

the roller under the arm rest

Seat belt and seat adjustments

Always use seat belt while driving. Make sure that the

seat is properly adjusted to keep vibrations transmitted by

the seat at minimum. Long term exposure to vibrations

may cause health effects. Also, as far as possible, keep the

operating terrain in good condition to minimize vibrations

Telescopic boom

Telescopic boom is operated with

the control lever no. 8 on the

control panel or with

the rocker switch on the joystick

Length of the

telescope is 600 mm and additional

lifting height is 485 mm.

Battery disconnect switch

The loader is equipped with a

battery disconnect switch. The

switch is located in the rear of the

machine, on the right side. Battery disconnect

switch cuts the current between

battery and the rest of the electric

system. Always switch off main

current when the loader is not

used for a longer period of time

in order that the battery doesn’t

get empty, or when servicing the machine.


Trailer coupling

The loader can be equipped, as

an option, with a trailer coupling.

There are two types available: a

50 mm ball hitch and a 50 mm ball

hitch with towing pin. Both can

be mounted either directly on the

rear bumper or on the extra back


Max. allowed vertical load of the

trailer coupling is 6900 N, max.

towing load is 6000 N.

Make sure that the weight on the trailer is distributed

correctly so that the trailer cannot cause an upward lifting

force on the trailer coupling

Extra counterweights

The loader can be equipped with

extra counterweights that are

mounted on the rear bumper.

Max. amount of extra weights

(29 kg/pcs) is 3 pcs. If the machine

is fitted with an extra weight with

trailer coupling, max. amount of

extra weights is 1 pcs. The loader

can also be equipped with an

extra side weight kit (80 kg) which

mounts behind the rear wheels.

Work light kit

The loader can be equipped with

extra work lights, making it easier

to work in low light. The lights are

operated with the switch on the

control panel.

Headlight, beacon, blinker & reflector kit

This optional equipment enables

road traffic registration in certain

countries. Requirements vary in

different countries, please consult

your local AVANT distributor.

Tilt adapter

The hydraulic tilt adapter mounts

between the attachment and the

attachment coupling plate. It allows

the driver to tilt the attachment

sideways to both directions from

the driver’s seat. Tilt adapter is

intended mainly for non-hydraulic

attachments, but with the optional double acting extra

auxiliary hydraulics outlet in the front (A35504) it is possible

to mount a hydraulically operated attachment at the same time. Tilt adapter is operated with the

auxiliary hydraulics control lever.

Drive release valve

The switch no. 16, LOCK, controls

a valve, which is used to divert the

oil flow between left and right side

hydraulic motors, and this affects

the pulling force.

LOCK OFF: In this mode, the

hydraulic oil flows in series from motor to motor. The

wheels will roll more freely and the loader leaves less tire

marks on soft surfaces.

LOCK ON: In this mode the hydraulic oil flows in parallel

between the hydraulic motors in each side, similar to a

differential lock in operation. This improves the towing

capability of the loader.

Anti slip valve

The valve positively diverts oil flow

between the right and left side

hydraulic motors and improves

traction on slippery and uneven

surfaces. It is engaged by switch

LOCK ON : Anti slip valve diverts oil flow between all

four hydraulic motors - all four wheels have best possible

traction. Use sufficient engine revs and press properly on

the drive pedal.

LOCK OFF: Drive circuit released – anti slip valve diverts

the oil flow between the front left and right hydraulic

motor only, not the rear hydraulic motors.

Starting the engine

Before starting the engine do the daily checks, Adjust the seat and mirrors (if fitted) so that you have a good

working position and unrestricted field of vision from the driver’s seat. Check that all controls function correctly.

to it that the operating area is safe. Read and follow operating and safety instructions.

Stopping the engine (Safe stopping procedure)

1. Lower the boom completely down. Place attachment firmly on the ground, engage parking brake, stop the attachment

(move auxiliary hydraulics control lever to neutral position, set engine revs to idle.

2. Stop the engine by turning the ignition key to the OFF position (to the left)

3. Release auxiliary hydraulics pressure.

4. Prevent unauthorized use of the loader. Take off the ignition switch and turn the power off with the battery disconnect switch.

Stop the engine as soon as possible, if any of the following symptoms is observed. Find out the cause before restarting.

• The oil pressure warning light turns on during operation.

• A sudden and unusual noise is heard

• The colour of the exhaust fumes suddenly darkens or turns white.

1. Turn the battery disconnect switch to ON

2. Move the hand throttle lever to approximately ¼ throttle

3. Make sure that auxiliary hydraulics is switched off (lever in neutral

position). Do not press on the drive pedals.

4. Turn the ignition key to the right until the glow plug

indicator light turns on.

5. After the glow plug indicator light turns of turn the ignition

2 key further to the right until the engine starts.

Do not actuate the starter for more than 10 seconds at a time. If the engine does not start, wait for one minute before

repeating attempt. If the engine does not start after a few attempts, or runs poorly, see troubleshooting and

the engine owner’s manual.

If auxiliary hydraulics is switched on during starting and there is a hydraulically operated attachment on the

machine, the attachment can move suddenly and cause a dangerous situation. Make sure that the auxiliary

hydraulics control lever is in neutral position during starting.

The engine cannot start if auxiliary hydraulics control lever is in locking position.


Familiarise yourself with the driving of the machine on low speed and on a flat, even

and open place where unintended movements don’t cause problems or danger. When

you have learned how to drive on low speed, increase speed gradually and learn how

to drive with higher drive speeds. Make sure that there are no persons in the operating

area of the machine.

Principle of operation

AVANT is equipped with a hydrostatic drive system, a variable displacement

hydraulic pump in the drive circuit is proportianally controlled with the two drive

pedals. Driving of the machine is controlled with the drive pedals and hand throttle.

Suitable engine speed is selected with the hand throttle lever on the control panel,

and desired driving direction and speed are controlled with the drive pedals. To get

maximum pushing power push the pedals lightly – for higher travel speed push the

pedal harder.

Drive conrtol

• Driving forward: press gently on the right drive pedal until the machine starts to move


• To drive backward: press gently on the left drive pedal.

• When you wish to stop gently release the pedal by lifting of your foot, and the machine

will slow and stop.

The hand throttle can be used to control engine speed also while driving. The basic

rule is: use lower revs for lighter work and higher revs for hard work or for high travel


The hand throttle also has an effect on the operation speed of a hydraulically driven

attachment: the more throttle the faster the attachment operates. Make sure not to

exceed max. allowed oil flow of the attachment.

When you want to have a high pulling force:

1. Use high engine revs

2. Press the drive pedal only lightly to select a relatively slow drive speed. This way the

full output of the hydraulic system and the engine can be taken out. If the engine is

overloaded while pushing, the pedal shouldn’t be pressed further, but instead use

higher engine revs and push pedal only a little.

Steering of the machine

Steering of the machine happens with the steering wheel.

The steering wheel is hydraulically powered. A practical

way of steering is to steer with your left hand on the knob

of the steering wheel. This way your right hand is free to

operate other functions.

Always remember – safety first. Test all the

functions of the loader at an open and safe

place. Make sure that there are no persons

in the operating area of the machine and

the danger zone of the attachment.

When driving, always keep the loader

boom as low as possible. Risk of tipping

over increases considerably when there

is a heavy load on the loader (a heavy

attachment or a big load in the bucket) and

the boom is up when driving.

Never use a high drive speed when turning.

In particular: when the loader boom is up

the stability of the machine is much weaker

when turning.

Remember that, when turning, the driver´s

seat extends beyond the turning radius of

the wheels. Stay inside the safety frame.
