The 500 Series machines are extremely effective and versatile tools. The driving of a 500 Series is easy thanks to logical drive controls, the hydrostatic drive has just two pedals one each for forward and reverse with infinitely variable speed control. Steering is power operated via a conventional steering wheel. The boom functions are operated easily with the right hand. All controls are ergonomically laid out.
The AVANT 530+ is the flagship of the range. The hydraulic system utilises a separate drive circuit with a powerful, hyraulically pilot operated variable flow pump. The lifting and auxiliary circuits on the 530+ are controlled through a tandem pump. The 530+ is very good for hard tasks with hydraulic driven attachments.
