PADDOCK VACUUMS - www.paddockvacuumcleaners.co.uk
"My paddock vacuum arrived safe and sound this afternoon, thank you. I look forward to trying it out tomorrow. Great service!"
"We have been using a paddock vac for about 5 years now – Paul Helps supplied it and has backed up the sale with excellent aftercare service. He always sorts us out for parts at the best prices. We don’t use any chemical wormers now as our horses have been worm free for years due to the excellent job the 'poo-sucker' does."
"It has to be the best invention since the dishwasher!! I had Monday and Tuesday off work to play with my new toy and now have squeaky clean paddocks. It is far better than I thought it would be and I am absolutely delighted with my new purchase. Will definitely recommend you and the vacuum to others. Many Thanks."
"It is so nice to receive good old fashioned FIRST CLASS SERVICE. When I rang the other day after I had damaged the hitch on my paddock cleaner it was important to me that I had a serviceable cleaner as it is a must to keep things clean and tidy for the animals and prospective clients. I received the part I wanted the following day and back cleaning paddocks within 24 hours. The vacuum cleaner is brilliant and it is backed by excellent service. Thanks."
"We have found Paul Helps to be ultra reliable, the paddock vacuum system he provided is fantastic and his standards of service and customer care are exemplary."
"Just thought you'd like to see your equipment in action!! All I can say is this has changed my life! I can pick up more in an hour than I used to collect in day by hand!! The alpacas were fascinated!!"
CHAIN HARROWS - www.chainharrows.co.uk
"I ordered on-line a 4ft three-way harrow yesterday morning and I received it before 9am this morning! Apart from you despatching it quickly for which I thank you very much, the logistics company, 'Tuffnells' did a great job to deliver it so fast. Please compliment them on their service. So often one is complaining, often for poor service, it is very pleasant indeed to be able to say thank you for excellent service."
"A well-made bit of kit and promptly delivered. I am very pleased with it and impressed by your service. I was using the harrow 45 minutes after delivery!"
"I'm very happy with the quality of them and am sure they will give me years of good service starting tomorrow."
"Just a note to say how pleased I am at the speed you dealt with my order. The courier has just turned up with the harrows less than 24hrs from first phone call. Now I have the afternoon to get out in the paddock and start work! Excellent service."
"Amazing turnaround thank you!"
"I just want to say thank you for the advice and prompt delivery of the chain harrows.
I'm very happy with the quality and weight of them and they're performing well in use.
Your honest advice was gratefully received, especially given you talked me out of spending more money on a framed set, which on reflection and given your advice, I realised wouldn't be the right choice for our set up.
I am really happy with the overall experience you offered me. Thank you.
Here's the harrow results after first pass, very happy with the set (see picture)."
"I would really like to say how good it was to deal with proper people who care about customers and are well versed on products they are selling. You and the team are a real pleasure to deal with, plus delivery was amazing.
My order arrived sooner than expected, absolutely amazing, thank you all again."
"Many thanks for such helpful advice and efficient service."
"It was a true pleasure to use your chain harrow. I used it on three fields and am very pleased with how it handled, and also the result. It was the first time I have used a harrow that stayed on the ground for the whole job, and didn't keep folding over, or flying up. The weight of the tines really makes such a difference.
I also want to say how good it was to meet you and be given such a wealth of good advice, not to mention the great coffee! All in all, your service and product is ten out of ten! Many thanks."
"Hi, As promised a video of harrowing with Etoile our draft horse. It worked brilliantly!"
FIELD ROLLERS - www.paddockrollers.co.uk
"I wish all internet sales businesses were as attentive and helpful. Everything arrived a day earlier than I was asking for and the delivery notes were marked up as we had discussed. Can't fault anything and I am fussy! Thanks again!"
AVANT LOADERS - www.avantequipment.co.uk
MBS DESIGN AND BUILD LTD
I have been in the building trade for over 30 years and I have never come across and more helpful, professional and friendly service, I can honestly say that Paul Helps certainly lives up to his name - he really does HELP!! Paul and his team will go the extra mile to assist their customers in any way they can from discussing needs, finding suitable equipment to precisely fill your requirements to helping with finance - he is honest, genuine and one of the nicest people that I've had the privilege of dealing with.
As to the Avant itself it's an absolutely incredible machine, I don't know how I've managed to long without one!! It's so versatile, it's like a giant Swiss Army Knife, it has not failed to meet any of my many varying requirements on the building site.
Thanks to Paul and his team, I would 100% recommend this company and their products.
TK PLAY LTD
The Avant is doing well when we have used it. You have provided a great service thank you.
I recently purchased a R35 Avant with a few attachments from Avant Equipment. From the initial contact to delivery I couldn't be happier with the service. Paul is obviously very passionate about the business and gave me great advice and help.
AVANT R35 CUSTOMER
Also a big thanks to you and Lorraine for the way you carried out the purchase of our Avant. Your professional and helpful approach is really appreciated and I look forward to dealing with you in the future. I'm really pleased with the R35, it's a fantastic bit of kit. The flail mower is doing a lovely job, don't even break into a sweat now and the log grab is perfect.
AVANT 635 CUSTOMER
I've been asked my views on dealings I've had with Paul Helps Ltd (Avant Equipment).
I bought an Avant 635 loader from him a couple of years ago, having searched the web for a supplier of these machines. After 'phoning the number found on his website to find more information about the Avant loaders, I was put through to Paul, who was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and said if I need any more info just give him a call. Anyway, I made up my mind and spoke to him again, and ordered the 635 from him.
He delivered it to me very quickly, and having unloaded the Avant did not rush off. He showed me everything I needed to know about operating it, including several tips to make things easy.
If I've needed info about any other Avant products, the girl who answers the 'phone has always been very helpful and really nice to talk to, getting Paul to call me if needed!
The machine itself is unbelievable, easily lifting 1 Ton builders bags (I bought the forks to go with it) from lorries, and pulling heavy trailers around my 1acre patch with no effort. I bought the quick release attachment plate for the front and welded a tow ball on it. Fantastic for shunting trailers around the place with everything in front of you. Every time I use it I find something else it will do, and there's nowhere it won't go. It still surprises me!
Anyway, I would have no hesitation in recommending this Company or the Avant loader to anyone, and can assure you I have no connections with Paul Helps or Avant (just a 74 year old pensioner with an unruly acre to maintain), apart from being an extremely satisfied customer!
The advice that we received from Paul Helps Ltd was sound and practical.The product has proven to be reliable and able to perform all the tasks expected of it. We have no hesitation in recommending Paul Helps Ltd to any prospective purchaser.
AVANT 630 CUSTOMER
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for all your help and advice. The purchase of the Avant 630 has been one of the best purchases we have made, and we now wonder how we managed without it.
We cut the grass in double quick time all around the fishery, used it with the log grab in the winter to load our firewood processor deck and stack the cages of processed logs, and now it's being used to load the big pan mixer and transport mixed concrete to the curb casting job, part of our road building project here at the fishery...fantastic piece of kit, and so manoeuvrable light on its feet.
AVANT 420 CUSTOMER
We had been contemplating buying an Avant to use in our small cow yard for some time. My husband had used a 600 series machine while working for the National Trust and was impressed by its capability handling wood/trees. We visited Paul Help's Avant stand at the Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show and were hugely impressed by the Avant knowledge of Paul's 10 year old son - Paul knew his stuff too!!!
Our budget would only stretch to a Avant 420 (much to my husband's disappointment) but we were convinced, a deal was done and delivery arranged soon after. Everything ran smoothly thanks to Paul.
The Avant has proved a very versatile tool - yard scraper (we have a small, awkward shaped cow yard) and hay bale handler. I asked my husband if he would part with the Avant and it was an emphatic 'NO'!
I am pleased to say that I have been delighted with my Avant purchase and wonder how I managed without one. It has proved extremely versatile on my livery yard fulfilling many functions.
Paul gave me excellent advice when I enquired about purchase and was very accommodating with delivery arrangements.
TREE SURGEON DISCOVERS THE MANY BENEFITS OF AN AVANT COMPACT TOOL CARRIER
When a Bridgwater based tree surgeon secured a contract to deal with over 80 tonne of wood in connection with a major site clearance contract he was at last able to justify the purchase of an Avant compact tool carrier.
Sedgemoor Tree Services, established some ten years ago by Jim Doble and his wife Nicola, specialises mainly in private garden contracts and was very keen to acquire an Avant® in order to make life easier when working in tight access areas.
Commenting on his acquisition, Mr. Doble said: "The machine has proved a real bonus for our type of work, particularly as we have also purchased a range of highly useful attachments including pallet forks, log grab, ripper and a flail mower."
Mr. Doble had initially looked at skid steer machines but decided that the wheel mounted and articulated chassis of the Avant design would cause far less damage to sensitive surfaces such as grass.
Mr. Doble continued: "The Avant has now changed the way we tackle bigger jobs by minimising back-breaking hand work and it also has the added bonus of being very easy to transport to site behind my 4x4 truck."
Supplied by local dealer Avant Equipment of Glastonbury, the 528 model chosen by Sedgemoor is powered by a fuel-efficient Kubota diesel engine developing 21 kW (28 hp) and is able to lift 800 kg to a maximum height of 2790 mm thanks to its telescopic boom.
AVANT COMPACT LOADER HELPS SAFETY SURFACE MANUFACTURER STREAMLINE PRODUCTION
An Avant 750 compact wheeled loader, supplied by local dealer Avant Equipment of Glastonbury, has proved to be the perfect tool for a Somerset based manufacturer of rubber play surfaces.
Star Rubber Environmental of Bridgwater transforms black rubber chips from old truck and bus tyres into TigerMulch, a decorative and hard wearing surfacing material available in eight colours and used mainly for children's playgrounds, pathways and tree dressing.
Before the arrival of the Avant machine the company had been using a 4 m reach telehandler for all its external and internal handling activities but was proving far too large for the efficient loading of raw material into the feed hopper inside the production building.
On the other hand, the Avant has proved to be ideal for the application thanks to its compact dimensions, articulated chassis and excellent driver visibility which allow it to work safely in the tight access area involved. To enable it to easily reach the high level feed hopper, Star Rubber has equipped its Avant with a large toe-tip bucket which can fill the hopper in just three passes.
Commenting on the machine, company director Nat Robertson said: "The job is so much easier using the Avant and the telehandler can now concentrate on its outside duties where we use a patentedprocess to colour the rubber chips. We currently produce about 2 tonne of finished product per hour but will soon streamline the whole process and, with help from the Avant, plan to increase production up to 8 tonne/hr."
The 750 model chosen by Star Rubber is powered by a Kubota 4-cylinder diesel engine developing 36 kW (49 hp), driving through a 2-speed hydrostatic transmission. The all-wheel drive, articulated machine is just 1050 mm wide and can handle loads of up to 1.4 tonne.
AVANT SELLS FIRST FLAGSHIP 760i COMPACT LOADER TO SOMERSET BUILDER
The very first Avant 760i compact tool carrier to be sold in the UK has recently been delivered to Somerset builder Mike Durston by local dealer Avant Equipment of Glastonbury.
Durston Construction of Shepton Mallet is a small, family-run business and for some 25 years has been building individual houses as well undertaking restoration projects and extensions.
According to Mr. Durston the most common problem he encounters on sites is limited access and so he had been looking for a machine capable of tackling a wide variety of tasks where space is at a premium.
"I first spotted an Avant at the Bath & West Show on the stand of the local dealer where I met Paul Helps", commented Mr. Durston. "Paul convinced me that an Avant machine would be perfect for my type of work, particularly as it could be easily transported between sites on a trailer behind my truck."
Following a subsequent demonstration, Mr. Durston decided to place an order for Avant's latest flagship model together with a 4in1 bucket and a set of pallet forks. The 760i unit chosen offered the advantages of a quiet and fuel-efficient turbocharged Kohler engine meeting the latest Tier 4 Final emission regulations. This new model provides outstanding performance for maximum torque being on tap from almost the idle position.
Despite is outstanding performance, the 760i is still a compact unit measuring just 3080mm in length and 1400mm in width and features an hydrostatic transmission allowing a maximum travel speed of 30km/h. The machine is also highly stable, even at speed, thanks to larger and wider tyres that also help to minimise damage to delicate surfaces. In addition, its auxiliary hydraulic system is able to supply an impressive oil flow of up to 80 l/min for powering a huge range of available attachments.
