maxwell wave design chainwheel
Maxwell's New Wave Design™ Chainwheel

The outer ribs of the chainwheel are angled slightly forward ensuring that the rope and the chain are smoothly guided in the wheel during anchor retrieval. As the rope pulls into the wheel, the opposite facing inner ribs grip the rope in an undulating manner, securing the rope more firmly in a ‘wave pattern’ action that is far superior to the traditional ‘jam cleat’ manner of holding the rope compared to all other products on the market. Not only does this Wave Design™ hold the rope more securely, it is also kinder on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode.


RC-8
Vertical Rope/Chain Windlass

      Features and Benfits:

  • The combined stainless steel and chromed bronze RC8-6 fully automatic rope/chain windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 6mm/7mm (1/4”) chain spliced to 12mm (1/2”) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • The more powerful RC8-8 can be used with 8mm (5/16”) chain spliced to 14mm three strand or 8-plait rope.
  • The ingenious Wave Design™ 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.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a f luted stainless steel capstan drum version, are available.
  • Simple two piece installation saves time and money and allows easy retrofitting without disassembly of the windlass.
  • Unique spacer tube design allows installa tion 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.
  • 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 ef fectively with all-chain rodes.
