Model 50,000 PXV - Variable Speed Crane Mounted Powerhead Auger Drives



The Autoguide 50,000 PXV is used throughout the utility industry for installing large LV and HV poles. As standard, the unit is supplied with an 18” Rock Ripper auger offering great performance in all conditions. With the addition of an anchor driver the auger can be easily changed to install screwed stays or PISA anchors. 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.


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


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.
