    • The HRC10-8 is Maxwell’s fully automatic rope/ chain or all chain horizontal windlass
    • Designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16″) chain and 16mm (5/8″) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
    • The HRC 10-8 has a patented uniquely designed chain wheel will accommodate ANY 5/16″ or 8 mm marine grade chain spliced to 5/8″ 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
    • Case Material: Anodized Aluminum
    • The two-part case consists of a die cast, marine-grade hard anodized 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 setup.
    • 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 90x of the wheel is used, allowing greatly improved rope and chain handling compared with competitor designs.
    • High quality Stainless Steel chainwheels
    • 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 anodized, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and worm wheel.
