With MyTana’s easy reel change design quickly add additional reels, the gearbox can push the cable up to 400 feet. Includes our large Autofeed-Retriever.

All MyTana machines are built with your safety in mind. The upright design is easier on your back than sled-style machines because the transport handle is already at operator height. Built-in stair glides help with getting up and down stairwells.

Other safety features of the M888 Upright Workhorse include built-in GFCI circuit, watertight electrical switches and boxes, reverse switch and air-actuated foot pedal.

Purchase this machine as a base unit only (requires MyTana reels and an M888 revolving arm).
