This term includes at least three different systems: (1) fully automatic winding in which no driver, banksman, or onsetter is employed; (2) pushbutton automatic winding, similar to the above except that the operation is started by a pushbutton by the banksman or onsetter; and (3) cyclic winding in which the driver takes off the brakes and throws over the control lever at the beginning of the wind.
