Maxwell HRC10-8 Horizontal Windlass - HRC10812VLP

The Maxwell HRC10-8 Horizontal Windlass is a fully automatic, horizontal low-profile (without capstan) rope / chain windlass designed for larger vessels requiring above-deck installations.

  • Heavy duty dual-direction motor and drive enclosed in two-part watertight case for easy on-deck access and routine maintenance
  • Case made of die cast, marine-grade anodized aluminum front section and easily removable composite motor cover aft
  • Simple bolt-down installation allows for easy on-deck installation and set-up
  • Innovative, patented Wave Design™ chainwheel provides outstanding holding power with less wear and tear on anchor line
  • HRC10 windlass works equally well with all-chain rodes for those who prefer the added holding power and security of an all-chain anchoring system
  • Chainwheel works with HT, BBB or metric short link chain
  • Patented pressure arm system ensures secure grip on rode and trouble-free transition from rope to chain
