Finnish compact loader maker Avant had its electric e6 model on display at the show.

A 13.8kWh (288 Ah) lithium ion battery provides between two and four hours’ running time depending on the workload and recharging takes one hour. It’ll lift a maximum of 760kg and will reach up to a height of 2.8m.

Also on the show stand was one of the firm’s standard diesel-powered 640 compacts equipped with tracks and a flail hedge-trimmer.
