What is an Avant?

An Avant is a fantastic and efficient piece of equipment that is used for tree cutting and thinning, tree clearance and forestry jobs where smaller trees need to be cut. As standard, Avant’s are able to help with:

  • Winching:
    A hydraulic winch allows you to tow of all kinds of objects, including logs, trees and branches to places where you cannot drive with the machine.
  • Tree shearing:
    An Avant tree shear is an efficient tree cutter, that can be used for forest thinning, tree clearance over stored hedge rows and similar jobs where smaller trees need to be cut and moved in tight confines.
  • Heavy duty log grabbing:
    Avant’s have a heavy-duty log grab which can be used to move trunks and logs. The grab takes a firm grip on the wood and the lower tines are formed for grabbing bigger trees.
  • Timber grabbing:
    Avant comes with a timber grab attachment that allows you to grab tree trunks, branches, wood waste and more to transport them lengthwise and crosswise.

What other tree surgery services do you offer?


Pollarding keeps trees and shrubs smaller than they would naturally grow by removing the top of a tree at a specific height, this also encourages multi-stem branching.

Tree stump grinding

We can remove problematic tree stumps by grinding down the main stump to below ground level and removing any extensive root systems with specialist equipment.

Tree crown work

The purpose of tree crown work is to maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree by reducing its height or spread by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals.


Coppicing is a proven traditional woodland management method that focuses on stimulating new tree growth by repeatedly cutting it back to near ground level.

Avant hire

We also now offer our Avant 640 and 755i for hire with timber grab, tree shear attachment, log grapple, and materials bucket.
