  • On/Off Breaker Panel
  • Reversing Solenoid
  • Up/down Panel Switch

  • The HRC10-8 is Maxwell's fully automatic rope/ chain or all chain horizontal windlass
  • Designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16" ) chain and 16mm (5/8" ) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • The HRC 10-8 has a patented uniquely designed chain wheel will accommodate ANY 5/16" or 8 mm marine grade chain spliced to 5/8" rope.
  • The aesthetically pleasing above deck design, evolved from the philosophy of form follows function, encapsulates the motor and drive in a two part watertight case, saving space below deck
  • Case Material: Anodized Aluminum
  • The two part case consists of a die cast, marine-grade hard anodised alloy front section and a rugged and easily removable composite motor cover aft section.
  • This two piece watertight case allows for quick and easy, on-deck,routine maintenance.
  • Simple " bolt down" installation ensures effortless and rapid on-deck installation and set up.
  • The stainless steel pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure on the rode (rope, splice or chain).
  • The new and revolutionary 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 HRC10 Series.
  • The unique Maxwell " wrap around" horizontal chainwheel ensures that more than 90x of the wheel is used, allowing greatly improved rope and chain handling compared with competitor designs.
  • High quality Stainless Steel chainwheels
  • The HRC10 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who desire the added security and holding power of an all-chain anchor system.
  • The integral chain pipe and 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 and emergency crank recovery of the rode and anchor if required.
  • The sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and wormwheel.
