The Re-Power Kit

The Re-Power Kit is an Auto-Roller specific bolt-in kit to update your existing machine. Having removed the existing engine, transmission and steering linkage, the Re-Power Kit simply bolts in.

The Re-power Kit can be installed by your own workshop or local engineer. Alternatively we offer a fitting service at our Wiltshire factory with the option of a complete refurbishment with shotblasting and respray of the old Roller.

All Autoguide Reconditioned Rollers are fitted with the

Re-Power Kit and completely refurbished. We can offer 3ft and 4ft rollers, subject to availability.

Why Choose Auto-Roller?

"The Highest Standard"

The ECB guidelines for rolling pitches show that our standard rollers achieve the optimum mass/width factor for all pitch performance levels and we supply the Auto-Roller worldwide to Test Wickets as well as at County and Club level.

"Re-Power Kit"

Auto-Rollers as old as 1948 have had our repower kit fitted. This is effectively a 'heart transplant', giving them a new lease of life.

"Precision Rolls"

All Auto-Rollers now use precision ball bearings, which keep power requirement and maintenance to a minimum. The rolls are fully machined from 20mm thick steel, ensuring perfect concentricity and allowing the optimum radius at the roll edges.

"Kind to the Environment"

All current production Auto-Rollers are filled with environmentally friendly biodegradable hydraulic oil and have industrial quality hydraulic systems from respected suppliers such as Parker and Poclain. All hose fittings use ORFS fittings ‘O’ ring sealed to reduce possibility of oil leaks; extending the working life and improving performance.

"Efficiency and Reliability"

We only use diesel engines from Kubota or Hatz – both world renowned for reliability. They meet all current emission standards and - in conjunction with quality transmissions - are fuel efficient.

"Years of Expertise"

We design and build our products with great care to ensure our customers have the best machine available. We can support units built in the last 70 years from our base here in Wiltshire and we offer a spares service for machines produced since the early 1930’s.
