The Avant is a longer machine also a bit of a knack needed to drive them as both joy stick controls do loader and drive its a bit like tapping you head and rubbing tummy. 

Quite right that’s why I went for the Cormidi so much more power and easier to use

We like ours, went for a opico as it will lift/ load over the cage sides on the trailer unlike a kanga. Also gets used a lot in the yard for shunting trailers and chippers about.
