Maxwell Anchor Winches

HRC FF Rope/Chain Series

The all new compact HRC FF are Maxwell's horizontal versions of the latest innovative new vertical RC6 and RC8 automatic rope/chain windlasses. The new HRC FF are packed with original and proven features including patented rode management technology developed by Maxwell.

Maxwell's Revolutionary New Chainwheel

Maxwell once again leads the market in innovative thinking with the introduction of their latest Wave Design™ chainwheel. This patented rope/chain wheel incorporates two unique design concepts that greatly improve the handling and control of the rope/chain spliced rode. 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 retrivel.

As the rope pulls into the wheel, the opposite facing ribs grip the rope in an undulating manner, securing the rope more firmaly 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 the Wave Design™ hold the rope more securely, it is also kinder on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode.

Wave Design™ Chainwheel

Is fitted to all HRC Series windlasses, designed for anchor rodes with any marine grade chain, G4, BBB, Proof Coil and Metric.
