The advantages of Maxwell Vertical Windlasses is that they take up less space on deck, they are easier to maintain, and are genereally cheaper than their horizontal equivelent. They also limit the possibility of chain jump because more chain is in contact with the chainwheel.
Maxwell Horizontal Windlasses are ideal where there is limited space below deck or extreme deck thickness (over 8"). They are also are preferred when two anchors must be handled from one winch.
