“Over the moon” with re-furbished Whites Roller!
Our popular repower kit fits into all Auto-Rollers, Auto-Mowers and T.H. Whites Rollers dating back to the late 1930s.
Halesowen Cricket Club, based in the West Midlands, recently sent in their Auto-Roller to be fitted with our repower kit as well as being shot blasted and re-sprayed.
The original serial number of the Club’s roller dated back to 1961 so over fifty years on, an Autoguide Repower Kit has brought this roller back to looking and working as good as new.
Nick Roberts from Halesowen CCC kindly got in contact to say “how delighted we are with the roller rebuild”. While the repower kit was being fitted in Autoguide’s workshop, the Club hired one of our 4ft rollers which Halesowen CCC’s grounds man “did not want to part with”. However, when their original roller was returned with a new engine, power steering and hydrostatic drive (to list just three of the features that come as standard with our repower kit), the Club’s grounds man was bowled over, “he could not believe how good their roller had turned out!”
Nick writes, “We are over the moon with our roller. The grounds man thinks it is brilliant as it runs on tickover with no strain on it at all. If you need a reference, you have got one from us!”
The repower kit that Autoguide Equipment Ltd manufactures and supplies, fits 3ft and 4ft Auto-Rollers, including Auto-Mower and Whites Rollers dating back to 1938! The Auto-Roller is renowned for its reliability throughout the world and machines that were built over half a century ago are still going strong today. Our repower kit complements this by being fitted into rollers to improve their efficiency, usability and functionality. Our repower kit includes a Hatz diesel engine, power steering, electric start and fully hydrostatic drive as standard- no compromises.
Having a standard Autoguide Repower kit makes future maintenance very straight forward (eg. buying spare parts or servicing) because we supply the original parts and our engineers have over 100 years’ worth of experience (obviously between them, we do allow employees to retire!) Consequently, we are able to offer the most reliable service.
Customers can either have the repower kit delivered in order to fit it themselves (with someone slightly mechanically minded, we advise 1-2 days fitting), or they can have the kit fitted by our specialist technicians (who know Auto-Rollers / Whites rollers inside out) here at our premises in Wiltshire. With the additional option of shot blasting and re-spraying the original machine, your roller can be transformed and given a new lease of life for many, many years to come.
Another customer who recently purchased and fitted an Autoguide repower kit contacted us to say “the operation [of the roller] is so much easier. Wish we had done this a few years earlier!”
