    The VWC Series is designed for automatic vertical handling of chain-only anchoring rodes while offering an independent capstan for the retrieval of a secondary rope and chain rode or to assist with docking procedures.

    Features:

    • Fully automatic single or dual direction chainwheel operation
    • High-quality finish on above deck components manufactured from marine grade 316 Stainless Steel and chromed bronze for long term durability
    • Integral chain pipe and stripper are aligned for virtually jam-free operation providing automatic feed of chain into and out of the anchor locker
    • Port and starboard chain pipes for twin installations
    • Cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits manual "free fall" anchoring - Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement ensuring safe and precise operator control
    • Clutch disengagement of the chainwheel enables independent rope hauling from any direction using the Max-grip™ snag-free warping drum for positive control of all ropes
    • Simple through deck installation by modular design and precise alignment of gearbox to the topworks utilizing marine-grade Stainless Steel bolts
    • Anodized aluminum gearbox and spacer tube
    • Heavy duty, dual direction motor designed for marine winches
