The DeviRodder is a user-friendly push reel system for enabling an effective manual surveying method for the DeviGyro and DeviShot.

Combining a fiberglass rodder reel and a customized DeviCounter wireless counting device, it’s the ideal solution for short, horizontal, and up hole survey applications such as drill and blast, injection drilling.

DeviRodder is available in the standard 100m version and a 150m version.

Why DeviRodder is a suitable support system for your survey instruments

Combined with DeviCounter, DeviRodder offers added benefits for
DeviShot and DeviGyro

user friendly

With the user-friendly DeviRodder, borehole survey instruments such as DeviShot or DeviGyro can be easily pushed into the drill hole and reeled back out while surveying in both directions, supporting continuous and multi-shot surveying modes.

high quality data

With the support of using DeviRodder and DeviCounter, high quality data is ensured by recording precise depth.

time saving

The use of DeviRodder and DeviCounter enables continuous mode with DeviGyro, equation to faster surveying and thus a higher number of possible meters surveyed per shift, which is especially valuable in high volume projects such as underground drill and blast.

labor intensive

Prior to the invention of the DeviRodder, heavy duty plastic piping was the main method for feeding survey tools in and out of most short, horizontal and up-hole applications.

Though this piping method is still widely used around the world as a reliable, proven method, the newly released DeviRodder enables a much less labor intensive, safer, and more accurate surveying process, through a purpose-built product design.
