Terrain Master – TC800

Autoguide have added to our fleet of bespoke machinery with the new Terrain Master TC800, created to be a scaled up version of the successful Terrain Master TC600. We first designed the smaller machines in 2011 and have developed them over time along with our extensive portfolio of other bespoke solutions, such as tracked fencing machines and drilling rigs.

Our team put together the design to offer a more stable base unit with a much uprated lorry loader. The Palfinger PK14502 SH (supplied by TH White Devizes) boasts a capacity of 1200kg with a 12m outreach – a specification requested by our customer.

Excavator Mounted Powerheads – KJN Services

Autoguide first worked with KJN Services in 2015, when they bought from our range of Augers. We were pleased to hear from them again when Alastair got in contact requesting a new Powerhead and several augers.

After KJN received advice from our sales and technical team, we put together a quote for a Powerhead, augers and four specially manufactured swivels. To finalise his order, Alistair requested a visit to our premises. He was given a tour of the workshop by Rob and Megg, who worked closely with him throughout the order process. They showed him where and how his equipment would be made.

Autoguide supplied KJN with a 25H powerhead to suit a 3t excavator, complete with three new augers to enable the customer to auger different sized holes where required. Their excavator was fitted with a Quick Hitch, so in addition to the main order we needed to manufacture QH swivels with a two pin design to suit based on the specifications received from Alastair. We also converted the auger they originally bought from us in 2015 from a 65mm hex to 2" so that it was compatible with the new equipment.

We have dealt with Autoguide equipment for a number of years and had need for a smaller auger and drive head together with the ability to fit this and other drive units to different sizes of mini excavator.

Prices and details were requested and received however I was still unsure so arranged to visit your premises.

This proved to be a good move as I was able to speak to members of staff who understood what was required, showed me drawings of parts to be manufactured and also arranged to adapt an existing 9” auger to fit the new drive unit which also had the added benefit of reducing the overall cost of my order.

The items have now been with us for a few weeks and we are very pleased with the outcome, we now have the ability to supply a wider range than before to our customers.

Alastair, KJN Services

We hope to work with Alastair and KJN again in the future. They quickly sent through all the information we required were always keen to check in on progress.

Autoguide Equipment offer the complete solution for all earth drilling applications, from our comprehensive selection of augers, to our range of Excavator and Crane Mounted Powerheads.

If you need any more information after looking through our website or would like to place an order, please don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

Postmaster Custom Jaws – Country Works

Country Works first hired from our Postmaster range a year ago and since then, we have been able to assist them on a number of occasions.

Whether you want to try out the machine and see how it can work for you, or if your contracted fencing work is not yet regular enough to justify a purchase - hiring is an excellent option. The Postmaster range offers a safe, efficient and fast way to both install and remove fence posts.

In this instance, we recommended to Country Works a custom set of jaws to suit their specific requirements. The fencing they were installing was a rustic style post and rail, with the rails located before install of the posts. These can therefore be difficult to install, so the team here were set the challenge of finding a simple and cost effective solution.

Our design engineers created a set of jaws that clamped onto the post a maximum of 4" down, as this ensured the machine wouldn't interfere with the pre-located rails. Matt - our customer - was very happy with the result.

Confor Woodland Show 2017

Autoguide Equipment and ABC Anchors would like to thank everyone that joined us at the Confor Woodland Show last week. We hope you all enjoyed the show as much as we did; we were definitely glad that there was slightly less rain and mud than the last trade show we attended!

If you saw us at the show, you probably noticed that we are celebrating our 40th anniversary this September! We have been celebrating in a number of ways, including building a special edition Midi Postmaster, as well as handing out some free gifts at the stand. We are happy to report that our gift bags, including a bottle of ‘Ruby’ port were very well received, although some of the staff here are a little disappointed about the lack of leftovers!

Most Interesting Tractor at the Steam Rally

The Heddington and Stockley Steam Rally is held very close by to our premises in Wiltshire. The directors at Autoguide have always played a large part in the organisation of the event and we are happy to provide an award for most interesting tractor at the Rally every year.

This year, the award went to Andrew Hurkett's family for their Orchard version of a Ferguson 35. Andy's children are shown accepting the tankard from Janet Tyler on whose land the Rally is held. Janet herself accepted the Jumbo Reid award from his son and daughter. This award recognises the huge contribution made by the Tyler family to the Rally.
