  • The all new HRC10 fully automatic horizontal windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16”) and 10mm (3/8”) short link chain and 14mm (9/16”) and 16mm (5/8”) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • The aesthetically pleasing above deck design, evolved from the philosophy of form follows function, encapsulates the motor and drive in a two part watertight case, saving space below deck.
  • The two part case consists of a die cast, marine-grade hard anodised alloy front section and a rugged and easily removable composite motor cover aft section.
  • This two piece watertight case allows for quick and easy, on-deck, routine maintenance.
  • Simple bolt down installation ensures effortless and rapid on-deck installation and set up.
  • The stainless steel pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure on the rode (rope, splice or chain).
  • The new and revolutionary patented Wave Design™ chainwheel is able to accommodate a wide range of chain pitch differences, within the specified chain size diameters, suitable for use with the HRC10 Series.
  • The unique Maxwell wrap around™ horizontal chainwheel ensures that more than 90° of the wheel is used, allowing greatly improved rope and chain handling compared with competitor designs.
  • The HRC10 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who desire the added security and holding power of an all-chain anchor system.
  • The integral chain pipe and huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Cone type clutch/brake mechanism permits manual, free fall™ anchoring and emergency crank recovery of the rode and anchor if required.
  • The sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and wormwheel.

Extended Information:
Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper and/or alternative snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
