Crane Mounted Auger Drives
50,000 PXV Variable Speed Crane Mounted Powerhead
The Autoguide 50,000 PXV is used throughout the utility industry for installing large LV and HV poles.

The hydraulic fold up bracket offers a fast and safe system for storing the auger unit along the crane boom or in the bed of the lorry.
The addition of the Quick Hitch allows full utilisation of the crane capacity, if required, by simply removing the whole auger drive and powerhead from the boom in seconds. Attaching the unit is also very quick allowing the whole vehicle to be utilised as a multi tool.
HYDRAULIC FOLD UP
The Hydraulic Fold-Up Brackets have been designed to allow the Powerhead to be stowed for transport and to allow the crane to be used for pole work without removing attachments.
The Hydraulic Fold-Up bracket uses the Quick Hitch system for ease of attachment / detachment from the crane. This will allow the crane to be used to its full capacity.
Autoguide can custom design the interface plates between the fold-up brackets and the crane boom to suit a large variety of lorry loaders
ROPE WIND UP
The rope wind up system is offered with the 50PXV when the vehicle is used for poling only. The permanently mounted frame holds the latch, rope and safety stop. The auger shaft or extension is used to wind the auger into its stowed position.

The system is normally permanently mounted to ensure the variable speed motor is free from the opportunity of contamination. There is also a relief valve to protect the motor.

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.
