Maxwell HRC10-10 Horizontal Windlass for 3/8" chain & 5/8" Rope, Low Profile
HRC10 Rope/Chain Series
Maxwell's all new HRC10 Horizontal Series represents yet another breakthrough
in performance and anchor handling excellence. These horizontal, fully automatic
rope/chain windlasses have been designed to meet the demands for use on larger
vessels up to 16 metres (52 feet), which require a completely above deck
installation system. The HRC10?s flawlessly handle rope up to 16mm (5/8") and
chain up to 10mm (3/8") in size, including the thick rope to chain
splice. The modern appearance of the HRC10 Series retains the classic good looks
of previous Maxwell horizontal windlasses, while incorporating design features
years ahead of its competitors.
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 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.
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.

- The all new HRC10 fully automatic horizontal windlass series is designed
to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16?) and 10mm (3/8?) short link
chain and 14mm (9/16?) and 16mm (5/8?) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
- The aesthetically pleasing above deck design, evolved from the philosophy
of form follows function, encapsulates the motor and drive in a two part
watertight case, saving space below deck.
- The two part case consists of a die cast, marine-grade hard anodised alloy
front section and a rugged and easily removable composite motor cover aft
- This two piece watertight case allows for quick and easy, on-deck, routine
- Simple bolt down installation ensures effortless and rapid on-deck
installation and set up.
- The stainless steel pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure on
the rode (rope, splice or chain).
- The new and revolutionary patented 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 HRC10 Series.
- The unique Maxwell wrap around? horizontal chainwheel ensures that more
than 90? of the wheel is used, allowing greatly improved rope and chain
handling compared with competitor designs.
- The HRC10 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who
desire the added security and holding power of an all-chain anchor system.
- The integral chain pipe and 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 and
emergency crank recovery of the rode and anchor if required.
- The sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides
high efficiency output drive via precision worm and wormwheel.

Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a
chain stopper and/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.
