About the BWT-1363
The Sherman + Reilly BWT-1363 is a precision bullwheel tensioner, with up to 2 reel carriers, providing a controlled conductor payout/retrieval system in a single piece of equipment.

Each bullwheel is controlled by a fully adjustable 3-axis, disc-caliper braking system, which incorporates a 20 in. ventilated bronze disc for well controlled, uninterrupted pulls.
