    Features:

    • The larger RC8-8 can be used with 5/16" (8 mm) chain spliced to 9/16" to 5/8" 3-Strand or 8-Plait rope.
    • The revolutionary, and patented, new 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

    • Dual direction solenoid pack
    • Circuit breaker / isolator panel
    • Up/down remote control panel
    • Emergency crank / clutch release handle
