Features:

  • 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.
  • ​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.
  • The RC8 features Maxwell's revolutionary, and patented, new Wave Design chainwheel.
  • 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.
  • Huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Full disassembly capability of the topworks utilising only the handle provided and an Allen key.
  • Manual override and Free Fall, using the emergency crank/clutch handle provided.
  • Sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides maximum output via a precision worm and worm wheel.

What's In the Box?

  • Anchor Winch with gearbox
  • Chainwheel suits both chain and rope
  • Dual direction solenoid (included)
  • Emergency crank/clutch release handle (included)
  • Owners Installation manual with
    • deck template,
    • wiring instructions and
    • installation instructions.

You will also need:

  • A correctly sized, circuit breaker and either two deck switches, and/or a panel up/down switch.
  • I strongly recommend using the Maxwell matched rope chain kit, as it transitions smoothly from the soft splice rope to chain, and, the chain wheel (gypsy) grips this rope very well. Plus, it is best of both worlds having chain (which doesn't chafe) near the anchor, and strong 8 plait rope (which is much lighter) for the rest.

​Other Accessories:

  • Browse the "Anchor Winch Electrical Accessories" category of this website for additional optional accessories such as remote controls and anchor chain counters. 
  • Browse the  "Additional Hardware Accessories" for items  such as snubbers - (see the left hand menu).

Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or alternative 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.
