General Oceanics - Winch, Portable Drill Hole System
Low-cost simplified winch for lightweight applications A.G.O.'s PID winches are designed specifically for borehole / drill hole and logging applications such as geophysics surveys and mining exploration. The reels are removable and the winch can be disassembled and reassembled easily in the field. SKU - PID-03.
The PID-03 (and its larger brother the PID-04) are unique in that they can be disassembled into component parts in the field. This allows them to be broken into smaller separate loads for man-pack, animal-pack, helicopter transport or small boat deployment. It also allows the units to be fitted with multiple drums (and thus multiple cables), saving the expense of multiple winches for multiple applications. The PID-03M can be configured as a manual winch with two different gearbox options or as a motorized direct-drive winch.
