Product information

Maxwell's all new RC-8-8 windlass proudly follows in the highly successful footsteps of the Freedom, Liberty and HRC fully automatic rope/chain anchor winches. This is the 'with capstan' version of the RC8-8.

RC-8-8 Features...

  • The all new RC8 fully automatic rope/chain windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy mm (5/16”) chain spliced to 14mm three 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 utilising 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 anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and worm wheel.
