    Click Here for an Owner's Manual for this Product

    Package Includes:

    • Maxwell RC6 Series Windlass
    • Dual direction solenoid pack
    • Circuit breaker / isolator panel
    • Up/down remote control panel
    • Emergency crank / clutch release handle

    Features:
    • Maxwell RC6 Series Windlasses are fully automatic rope/chain anchor winches
    • The RC-6 utilizes 1/4” (6 mm / 7 mm) chain spliced to 1/2” (12 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 RC6
    • Providing most of the features of the larger RC8, the RC6 has been designed with the smaller, trailer boat market in mind
    • The in-line, vertical gearbox and motor means quick and easy installation by either the boat yard or the DIY aftermarket customer
    • An inexpensive, high performance and great looking windlass, the RC6 is built for durability and years of trouble free use
    • The RC6 is available only as a low profile unit (no optional capstan drum)
    • Every Maxwell automatic rope/chain windlass comes complete with all the necessary components for fully automatic dual direction control in a competitively priced package

    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.
