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.

In conjunction with the fully powered crane stabilisers, the three radial legs interface with the crane stability system, allowing the full 9 tonne metres capacity to be utilised.

For crane operation a Parker load sensing 60 l/m 320 BAR pump is fitted which together with an auto throttle system, saves fuel whilst extending engine life.

Fitted with a Parker IQAN system the TC600 and crane are fully radio controlled.

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.

Utility Pole Grab

Front Loader and Excavator Utility Pole Grab

The Autoguide front loader grab has been designed with the utility contractor in mind, incorporating a large diameter pivot bearing, dual rams and an electric control for the changeover of functions.

A simple mounting system offers the same unit can fit to front loaders, tele-handlers and slew machines from 8 tonne to 16 tonne. The grab has been developed to offer the user flexibility for 10 degs below horizontal rotation up to 10 degrees past vertical. This ensures the pole can be positioned accurately on uneven ground. The unique twin rotate rams and large pivot reduces play when delicate positioning is required for example live line.

We offer two sizes of grab, SWL of 600kg and 1300kg for both telecoms, LV and HV fully dressed poles.

The grab has been designed for pole removal as well as installation The high strength jaws ensure a positive grip on the pole for safe removal without compromise .

Crane Mounted Utility Pole Grab

The crane mounted pole grab has been specially designed to allow the operator to utilise a hands free system for loading and unloading poles from the pole dump on to a carrier vehicle
Our two models offer a safe working system for pole loading and pole stack work along with a manipulation on the more complex unit. Along with the Autoguide quick hitch the grab can be changed over from pole handling to pole augering safely and quickly.

 

2 Function Pole grab

The Autoguide 2 function pole grab offers a safe hands free operation for loading and unloading timber and composite poles. The grab system uses an accumulated circuit to ensure a constant pressure is applied to the poles, this can be set for more delicate poles to prevent damage.

The second function is rotation, this allows the user to rotate the pole for alignment along side the job or in line with the pole rack on the carrying vehicle.

These functions can be controlled either by 2 double acting circuits or if the autoguide quick hitch and auger unit is fitted by use of one double acting circuit and an electrical change over between rotate and grab.

Introducing the Terrain Master TC600

Autoguide has launched a new track mounted carrier for loader cranes and work platforms, aimed at utility companies.

The 7.5 tonne tracked TC600 Terrain Master has rubber tracks and has been specifically designed to carry either a nine metre/tonne loader crane or a 15 metre aerial work platform.

It has a top speed of 11kph and is available with full radio remote control and side, front and rear stabilisers. The unit also features a 4,500kg capacity electric winch and a charging station for the remote control batteries.

Autoguide has sold the first two units, mounted with a Palfinger PK9001 loader crane, to Newcastle-based VLS – a supplier of leased vehicle to the electric supply industry. The crane has a maximum reach of 8.7 metres and a maximum capacity of 5.7 tonnes.

Autoguide’s managing director Richard Robinson said: “The machine is built to the required specification entirely in-house. The TC600 can also be fitted with a 15 metre access platform instead of the loader crane.”

A video of the TC600 in action can be viewed here.
