The Type-CP reel is constructed of stainless steel tubing welded together and making use of gusseted plates in heavy stress areas to prevent the frame from bending. The control module can be mounted on top of the Type-CP reel or the reel can be used in a vertical position. A drip bag accessory is available to protect against water splatter and to catch any water or debris when working indoors. A conventional cable locator transmitter can be attached to the post of the reel to allow the entire length of pushrod to be located underground.
