- Sealed oil bath and marine grade hard anodized, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and wormwheel
Important : Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chainstopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
