Updated: Nov 14, 2023

Utility companies are constantly looking for ways to improve pole installation. Autoguide has created a solution that helps do just that. The Autoguide Pole Grab and Auger Powerhead provide an efficient, safe and cost-effective way to install poles. This case study examines how these two products work together to make pole installation easier and faster than ever before.

The Challenge

Pole installation has traditionally been a laborious and time-consuming task. It typically requires a team of workers to manually dig holes for the poles, lift them into position, and secure them in place. The process can be both physically demanding and hazardous, especially when working on uneven or sloping terrain. Moreover, using manual tools like shovels and pickaxes to dig the holes can be slow and inaccurate, leading to delays and potential damage to surrounding infrastructure.

In response to these challenges, Autoguide developed an innovative solution: the Autoguide Pole Grab and Auger Powerhead. This advanced system combines a hydraulic pole grabber and an auger driver, making it possible for a single operator to quickly and efficiently install telegraph poles with minimal physical strain or risk of injury. In the following sections, we'll explore the features and benefits of this groundbreaking technology in greater detail.

The Solution

To further streamline the pole installation process, Autoguide also offers an Auger Powerhead that can be easily mounted onto the front loader or excavator. The Auger Driver is capable of drilling holes up to 1200mm deep and 900mm in diameter, allowing for easy and efficient pole installation.

The powerhead is designed with the user in mind, with features such as a low profile design for increased visibility and an adjustable pressure relief valve to prevent damage to the auger or surrounding equipment.

Together with the Autoguide Pole Grab, the Auger Powerhead creates a powerful and efficient system for pole installation. By eliminating the need for manual digging or lifting, the Autoguide system saves time, reduces labor costs, and increases safety on the job site.

Whether you're working on a telecoms, LV, or HV project, the Autoguide Pole Grab and Auger Powerhead are a game-changing solution for any utility contractor looking to streamline their operations and increase productivity.

The Results

After implementing Autoguide's Pole Grab and Auger Powerhead, the results were nothing short of impressive. With the new system in place, earth drilling was quicker and more precise, reducing the need for repeated attempts and minimizing the likelihood of human error.

Pole maneuver and handling were also greatly improved, as the Pole Grab was able to lift and hold the pole securely in place while the Auger Driver drilled the necessary holes with ease. This meant less time and manpower required for each pole installation, ultimately resulting in significant cost savings for the company.

Overall, Autoguide's Grab and Powerhead system proved to be a game-changer for pole installation. The combination of advanced technology and user-friendly design allowed for greater efficiency, accuracy, and safety on the job site. By streamlining the process, Autoguide has helped companies save time and money while improving the quality of their work.
