A standard drill or driver is used to provide power to the Power Winder, which turns the rollers that are in contact with the reel. The drill can be operated at various speeds, in forward and reverse, to turn the reel and unwind and rewind the tape.

The Power Winder is ideal for use with Solinst Water Level Measurement Devices, but can also be used with Solinst Tag Lines or pump tubing reels, such as the Model 425 Discrete Interval Samplers.

Reels using the Power Winder can be placed on the ground, on a Solinst Field Table, or other flat surface. Small reels can also be secured to a well casing using a tape guide or the optional cinch straps.

Standard Power Drill/Driver: A standard power drill or driver that connects to a 1/4" hex fitting is required to operate the Power Winder.

Optional Flex Drill Adaptor: The Flex Drill Adaptor connects to the Power Winder and allows you to use the drill at any angle so you can work from the most ergonomic position.

Optional Cinch Straps: A set of straps can be added to the base of the Power Winder for securing a small reel assembly to a well casing.
