Windlass RC8 with 5/16" Chain and 9/16"-5/8" Rope Gypsy

Maxwell's all new RC series windlasses proudly follow in the highly successful footsteps of the Freedom, Liberty and HRC fully automatic rope/chain anchor winches.

RC8 Windlass Features

  • The all new RC8-8 fully automatic rope/chain windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16”) chain spliced to 14mm-16mm (9/16-5/8”) three strand or 8-plait rope.
  • The ingeniously designed rope/chain gypsy (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.
  • Manual override using the emergency crank handle provided
  • Sealed oil bath and marine grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and worm wheel.
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 chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
