Autoguide Equipment is a British design engineering company, established in 1977. They have a heritage of providing innovative, reliable and lasting engineering solutions worldwide.
Located in Wiltshire, Autoguide have a staff of over 25 in the development shop, production workshops and offices.
Autoguide Equipment’s world famous Auto-Roller is used at the top test cricket grounds, as well as county, village and school greens throughout the world.
Continuously developed over 80 years, the Auto-Roller today retains all the features that have made it so successful around the world. This ensures it keeps the finest cricket wickets in world class condition.
Only the Auto-Roller can produce the unique finish demanded by the world’s top groundsmen. Manufactured in Britain, the range includes the standard 4ft roller; the smaller 3ft roller, and the Re-power kit.
The 3ft roller was introduced a few years ago to meet the demand of smaller clubs with budget constraints. It is not compromised in any way other than the smaller roll width.
The Autoguide Re-power kit can bring your old roller back to life! It simply bolts in after removing the existing engine, transmission and steering linkage. The re-power kit also comes with an option of shot blasting and respraying the roller, meaning you can update it in Auto-Roller green, or even show off your school or cricket club’s own colours!
The range of Auto-Rollers features as standard:
- Low emission diesel engines for a smooth and quiet operation.
- Precision pre-lubricated bearings on all roller shafts and precision machined rolls allowing for perfect pitch preparation.
- Full hydrostatic transmission and power steering; fully contained and run on biodegradable oil, meaning reduced possibility of surface damage from spillage.
- Electric Start. The Auto-Roller runs at 7kph forward and reverse with a tilt-able steering wheel for better visibility.
