    Click Here for an Owner's Manual for this Product

    Package Includes:

    • Maxwell RC8-8 Series Windlass
    • Dual direction solenoid pack
    • Circuit breaker / isolator panel
    • Up/down remote control panel
    • Emergency crank / clutch release handle

    Features:

    • Maxwell RC8-8 Series Windlasses are fully automatic rope/chain anchor winches
    • The larger RC8-8 can be used with 5/16" (8 mm) chain spliced to 9/16"to 5/8" (14 mm) 3-strand or 8-Plait rope
    • The revolutionary and 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 RC8 Series
    • Sleek, low profile and MAX-grip™ capstan drum versions are available to suit individual user preference
    • Simple two piece installation saves time and money and allows easy retrofitting without disassembly of the windlass
    • Unique spacer tube design allows installation through virtually any deck thickness and the multiple mounting positions and self-aligning gearbox ensure optimal location of gearbox and motor in virtually all installation situations
    • Full disassembly capability of top works utilizing handle provided, a screw driver and an Allen key
    • The RC8 Series is manufactured from marine grade 316 stainless steel for long term durability
    • The heavy duty stainless steel pressure arm is designed to effectively help grasp the rope/chain splice, giving the RC8 an unparalleled level of performance
    • In combination with a heavy duty, large wire diameter stainless steel pre-loaded spring, the pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure
    • The RC8 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who desire a low profile, elegantly styled windlass on their foredeck
    • 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
    • Sealed oil bath and marine grade hard anodized, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and worm wheel

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