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.

Autoguide Rock Spike (used on the postmaster range)

As shown in the images, the Rock Spike is being used on the Postmaster to pilot holes in harder ground conditions.

The Rock Spike fits into the postmasters jaws alike a standard post, making the occasional situations when you hit hard ground quick and easier to resolve. When contractors would usually have to use an auger driver to pre auger holes, this 4” round, 1m spike can be used.

 

The Vibrating Post Driver Exhibiting in the USA

After several years of dealing with Seago International, our American Dealer, we have joined them to exhibit at the Fencetech Show Nashville (Stand Number 132)

The show has proven to be very busy with lots of interest surrounding the vibrating postmaster range. As seen on the stand we are exhibiting both the mini and midi postmaster on the BOB Cat. With an example of a 'swan neck bracket' for installing tall posts and a Rock Spike, used to penetrate hard ground, to save any damage to posts.

Utility Pole Jack

The Autoguide Pole Jack has been designed and produced for many years. It provides a safe, secure, reliable method for extracting utility poles.

The Pole Jack can offer a 10T vertical lift to aid the extraction of old or out of specification poles. The jack is also able to remove the poles with timber blocks without the need to hand dig. The pole jack also removes rotten poles reducing the risk of breaking and potential ‘cartwheels’. Specially developed chain grips the pole without damage and will ‘ratchet’ the pole out of the ground whilst keeping the jack vertical.

It must be used in conjunction with a lorry loader to support the pole at all times.

For steel or composite poles the chain can be substituted for a fibre or webbing strop.

"As a repeat customer, Country Works highly recommends the Postmaster. It consistently performs above expectations. We were able to install 60 chestnut post and rail bays, plus gate posts and a stile in 1.5 days. This is 3 days quicker than if we'd used an auger, and 6 days if installed by hand."
Matt Harriyott, Country Works
