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.

Midi-Postmaster Demonstration

Mini-Postmaster Dibber Attachment

The Autoguide specially designed attachment is used to clamp 3 or 5mm angle at any length, driving it effortlessly into the ground.

In addition this attachment forms a compacted hole to allow the installer to cast concrete around the angle, setting a level and reinforcing the angle for use with a plastic fencing system.

Terrain Master TC600 Video

This video shows the new Terrain Master TC600 equipped with a Palfinger PK 9001 EH crane and an Autoguide Equipment 40,000PXV Auger Unit. It is being operated completely via remote control, including tracks, crane, support legs and auger attachment.

The first machines have tracked their way out of our workshops and off to the customer. These have been configured as the Terrain Master TC600 Crane unit, for use with all aspects of utility pole and transformer work, and offering the following benefits:

  • A flexible highly manoeuvrable machine, able to carry off-road up to 22m poles and a transformer. The machine can auger the hole, install the pole and lift the transformer into position
  • Fully remote controlled to allow the driver to drive the machine from a safe distance in the field, with the additional advantage of safe, easy loading from the ground with lashing points in the track frame – so the operator never needs to get on the bed of the lorry
  • Incorporating a number of advanced features designed to appeal to overhead
    linesmen who have to repair utility poles in hostile environments
  • In addition, the base unit can be fitted with a variety of different attachments:
  • Access Platform
  • Detachable or Tipping Bed
  • Post Driver
  • All of these can be designed and built to suit your specific requirements.
