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.

50,000 PXV Powerhead Refurbishment

We not only manufacture and supply powerheads and utility packages, but also offer servicing and repair of any of our units. Previously, we have serviced units that have been going since we started making them in the early 90s!

One of our customers got in contact with us, wanting to upgrade a 50,000 PXV crane mounted powerhead with a manual quick hitch used in the utility industry.

Doosan Drilling Rig

Autoguide Equipment’s key products are known for making round holes in the ground and this special project was no exception!

After a meeting on site we were asked to commission a pre-boring drilling rig with specific design criteria to give the customer better productivity rates and be more efficient in their processes. The donor machine; a Doosan 140LC, was delivered to site. The bucket, dipper and boom were removed to allow us to design and build a bespoke 10m drilling mast.

The design brief was to manufacture an auger drive unit and mast capable of 20kNm in conjunction with a fast spin off speed to aid spoil removal and 8.5m of mast stroke. The required RPM speed for drilling also needed to be set along with upper and lower limits on the carriage depth and pull back. 

Legislation set the specification for the guarding and interlocks and the finished machine is now working hard on large commercial sites preparing the ground for building works. From housing estates to distribution centres, the pre-boring rig is one of the first processes on site, alongside ground stabilisation works.

We very much look forward to working with Mat and Tim in the future and continuing to build on our wide variety of specialist bespoke products.

"After being introduced to Autoguide for this first time by a mutual client, they took on our project to create a new drilling rig built to our specification. From inception we felt comfortable with Autoguide and their many years of expertise was clear to see.
We felt included and valued in the design and build and we are very happy with what they managed to achieve with our machine.
We are planning for Autoguide to build us another machine soon and I look forward to building a long working relationship with them."

If you are inspired by our special machines and have a bespoke project in mind that we could take a look at, please contact the office to discuss your requirements.

Plantworx 2017

Autoguide Equipment and ABC Anchors would like to thank all of those who joined us at the Plantworx Construction Equipment Show last week! We had some mixed weather conditions, but were delighted to see a high level of interest over all three days despite the sea of mud!

Visitors were especially interested in our range of vibrating post installers. Throughout the show, we were demoing our Midi Postmaster installing and removing 6” posts, although the machine is capable of driving up to 8” posts on a 3-5 tonne excavator.

Also displayed at the show was a variety of utilities equipment including our Utility Pole Grab, Cable Drum Spreader Bar and 40,000 PX Powerhead, as well as ABC Anchor’s range of screwpiles.

We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and we look forward to exhibiting at Plantworx again next time.

Utility Plant Powerhead 40PX

The Autoguide Utility spec excavator powerhead package 40PX has been widely recognised in the telecom and Electricity industry for many years. The unit allows the plant operator to utilise both the speed of augering for pole planting along with the ability to also install the screwed stays
This robust fixed speed unit fits all makes and models of excavator and backhoe from 5– 8T and increase pole planning efficiency over the standard buckets


 

Fold up stowage Bracket

This bespoke bracket allows the powerhead assembly to fold away for safe secure transport while also carrying the auger bit and stay tube driver. The unit can be easily detached by use of the quick hitch or removal of pins and changed for a bucket for other tasks

With the unit stowed it allows for easy loading of the PISA anchor system and maintenance checks

Rock Master

Autoguide can also offer a more specialist machine. The Rock Master combines the best of both variable speed powerhead plus the addition of a vibrating gearbox.

The Rock Master is a fast, efficient auger with the ability to drill through fractured rock in some of the most demanding situations. With the vibrator activated, the whole auger string is active allowing the hardened rock picks to break our rock leaving a clear hole for Utility poles. Typically the Rock Master can drill 1m deep 12” diameter in granite in one hour.

The unique feature of this machine is with vibration off, the same unit can be used for standard soil hols without adaption. This gives the users a versatile all round powerhead that can be used every day. With a small adaption the unit can also install PISA anchors.

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.
