The hd is the heavy duty version.
The non HD has been a hell of a strong machine,I would have never deduced.
I was hoping for more specifics.
We get hydraulic hoses made for our gear in Kamloops, there should be some shop near you that can make up a hose. It is super common for equipment to blow em. Ask any local excavator contractor where they get hoses made.I’ve got 1100 hours on my 528. No major issues, but something I’m dealing with right now is the 12 inch by 1 5/8 hydraulic hose going from the tank to the pump. The poor parts guy at Alta equipment had a bitch of a time trying to get this ordered for me. He seemed pretty frustrated by the whole process. I don’t think Avant did him any favors. I would think ordering a hose should be pretty simple. I kinda fear needing something a little more serious. I hope Avant knows the frustration they .......
Yes please do! I am truly interested because I like the compact format and less physical labour always is better! I do tell clients that when the material is on the ground a machine will beat man hands down. We often use an excavator but most sites are not on with that kind of disturbance.If I can help either of you, let me know. We can ship parts to Canada. I am not sure on shipping machines but I can definitely check with our shipping company on what we need to do.
Ok I ordered a 254 SW from a dealership in Ontario, will be in Canada mid July and hopefully in BC by the end of July.If I can help either of you, let me know. We can ship parts to Canada. I am not sure on shipping machines but I can definitely check with our shipping company on what we need to do.
Yeah I ordered it with a BMG!congrats you will love the machine, it will change your dragging life.
give my BM grapple a shot at your business. I have lots of copy cat mfgs out there now.
My grapple is still unique with more tree guy features than the competitors, give me a call with questions why Branch Manager is still your best value
Dave's grapple rules best out on marketThe non HD has been a hell of a strong machine,
with no complaints from owners
Well then the factory doubled the pump size from 200 ccs to 400 ccs and changed the poclain drive motors.
and introduced the "HD" late last summer
The HD is incredibley more torquey
stop mid hill with Avants and standard 254s and they will hesitate
Stop midhill the HD's just takes right off, pushing a big bucket into mulch piles
great improvement - and the standards were great
watch this thing climb ramps, even when I stop
